Edge: Waking Mars review

Waking Mars is a science fiction adventure that’s almost entirely built around gardening. Other games might despatch you to the red planet to reduce its caverns to shrapnel with sizzling laser bolts, but Tiger Style is more concerned with having you restore this arid landscape to full bloom, one well-placed flower-bed at a time. Coming from the developers of Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, such an idiosyncratic approach to the genre should hardly be much of a surprise, of course. Neither should the steady unspooling of a quietly fascinating plot, or the elegant way it’s married to the gradual unveiling of a smart range of interlocking systems. (iPad, iPhone, Walking Mars) 8/10
