Low-grav horticultural enthusiasts rejoice: Tiger Style's science-powered gardening puzzler Waking Mars will be planting its roots in the App Store tomorrow.

Armed with an only an encyclopedia and a passion for extraterrestrial plant life, you have to cultivate a vibrant alien ecosystem on the titular red rock.

To that end, you must guide your jetpack-propelled scientist around the Martian caves, discovering plant species and collecting seeds as you go.

The (alien) birds and the (space) bees

As you learn about the reproductive habits of these weird and wonderful lifeforms, you will have to apply your knowledge to increase the landscape's biodiversity, and ultimately create your own self-sustaining off-world Eden.

Residents of New Zealand can pick up Waking Mars as a Universal app from the App Store for $6.49 right now.

Fear not, though, European and US customers: you will only have to wait until tomorrow to get your hands on this thought-provoking dose of science-flavoured gaming, which should launch at £2.99 / $4.99.
