     This game has none of the mechs, but it’s still a really fun game. This is a Battle Royale game that you don’t want to skip. Each character has their own game mechanics, which make them all stand out from each other. Try each out and see which one you end up favoring. But before you do, let’s find out a little bit about them.

     It has long been known that NASA is attempting to develop the capabilities needed to send humans to our nearest planet, and it’s the fourth one from the sun, Mars. In 2010 the American congress passed a bipartisan act, entitled the NASA Authorization Act, which set out this long- term goal, including plans to reach an asteroid by 2025 and then, eventually, Mars by the mid 2030’s.

If you haven’t read the one for teens and adults, you can read that here.  To be honest, even though I have kids I still had to research a few of these myself.
