📓Design Inspiration

What was the inspiration for this class design?

Distinct Class Identities: Each combat rover class in Million on Mars has a unique identity and playstyle that sets it apart from the others. This is achieved through unique abilities, specialized equipment, and class-specific mechanics that provide a distinct experience for each class. As a combat rover manager, you'll need to choose which class suits your playstyle and the challenges you'll face on Mars.

Balanced Strengths and Weaknesses: We've made sure that each combat rover class has strengths that can be countered by the weaknesses of other classes. This encourages you to form alliances with others and create a well-rounded team that can handle any challenge. As a combat rover manager, you'll need to strategize and work with others to overcome obstacles on Mars.

Complementary Abilities: The combat rover class abilities in Million on Mars are designed to complement each other, promoting synergy and teamwork. For example, a healing-focused combat rover class could work well with a tanky, damage-absorbing class, while a stealthy class might be most effective when supported by a crowd-control class. As a combat rover manager, you'll need to consider how your class's abilities can work with others to create a more powerful team.

Role Versatility: We've allowed each combat rover class to excel in different roles and situations, without becoming too specialized. This gives you more freedom to adapt your strategies and tactics to the challenges you face on Mars, making each class viable in various scenarios. As a combat rover manager, you'll need to choose a class that suits your playstyle and can handle the different obstacles you'll encounter on your missions.

Meaningful Progression: As you level up your combat rover in Million on Mars, you'll unlock new abilities, equipment, and customization options for your class. This progression system is designed to keep you engaged and motivated to explore the full potential of your chosen class. As a combat rover manager, you'll need to carefully consider your class's progression path and unlock new abilities and equipment to increase your combat rover's effectiveness.

Replayability: Each combat rover class in Million on Mars offers a unique gameplay experience, making it difficult for combat rover managers to decide which class to choose and enticing them to try out multiple classes throughout their missions. We want you to have a reason to come back and try new classes, each offering its own unique playstyle and mechanics, and to find the best class for the challenges you'll face on Mars.
