In the year 2046, humans finally make contact with aliens on Mars. The result of the cross-cultural dialogue the ensues? MarsBall – a blend of humanity’s favorite sports and the glowing neon tech of the Martians. This two-player action game pits you against a friend in a race to dunk a ball in the opponent’s goal, but wildly changing ball physics, platforms and environmental hazards make this trickier than it sounds.
