Curiosity just celebrated its first Mars-iversary, so why not celebrate by enjoying this awesome-looking Mars simulator, Take On Mars?

The game lets you plan and execute rover missions, and it looks like the creators have integrated everything from simulated landings to scientific digging expeditions. The game is available for early access download here for $12.99. The early-access program means the game still has some glitches the designers need to iron out, but hey, Curiosity has had some glitches, too. Realism!
