With the latest update to ISE to add in the Facebook and Twitter postings, as well as the In-App Purchases, Rover Rescue is moving closer and closer to release! The Upgrades and powers are all now fully functional and upgradeable, this leaves only all the Achievements artwork as well as implementing each of the Achievements, and then finally the Game Center Leaderboards. The Feb updates to ISE added in the basic framework for logging in to Game Center, as well as do all the Leaderboard in-app displays, but Rover Rescue also will have the “nearest player beaten & beating” in-menu information.
On Mission 4, the Rescue Ship, the UES Anaeis has flown to Mercury to rescue the devastated colony to pull all the rovers on the surface.
From the Main Menu, access:
- The game itself, either continuing on, or creating an all new one.
- The Gems store panel for either earning additional gems outside the main game, or purchasing additional gem packs.
- Review and purchase (using in-game Gems) rover upgrades, rescue craft upgrades, mission powers and more.
- Review all earned and unearned achievements.
The mission to Mars gets plagued by a dust storm.
Tying in with the Agent Saga universe, Rover Rescue is a prelude to The Agent Saga: Fractured.
The United Earth organisation is one of a few government collectives, representing over 35 countries all working together for the common goal of human expansion throughout the solar system. The UE has a nascent human presence across most of the planets. Due to a “solar event”, contact has been lost with all the colonies, and the solar system is being bombarded with a system-wide meteor shower.
With the colonies in an extremely perilous position, dangerously short on food and supplies, the UES Anaeis, carrying a fleet of UES Model D Rescue Craft, has been sent across all the planets to rescue as many of the colonists as possible, who are all using their local UES Planetary Rovers to drive to the various landing sites. As Captain of the UES Anaeis, you must guide the rovers to the nearest UES-D RC, protect them all from meteors, and save as many people as you can!
