Due to some bugs in version 0.7.3 it was necessary to release a new version of M.A.R.S.

The following evil insects have been removed from the game:

  • The special FireWall is now selectable when cycling through the specials in both directions.
  • The weapon Insta in Grave-Itation Pit works correctly now.
  • Damage numbers are displayed again on local player’s ships.
  • WT-Flamer does damage.

Version 0.7.3 screenshots (newest):

v0.7.3 - 19 languages v0.7.3 - new special - Shocker
v0.7.3 - new special - Shocker v0.7.3 - new weapon - H2OMG!

The previous 0.7.3 version introduced a new weapon (H2OMG), a new special (Shocker), and an option that lets you change game speed.
