Some additional thoughts, having just finished the game:

I really liked the concept of exploring this distant planet via time delay and waiting to see what the pictures would look like, but the illusion was spoiled somewhat by the sheer number of living things out there. After you've left the starting area, you know you're going to see dozens of funky plants in every single shot - the place is far too fertile to be even remotely plausible. There's no thrill of the hunt, and after a while I didn't bother tagging a lot of stuff because it all looked the same.

It could have been more creepy. For example, you've taken half a dozen shots of rocks and sand, then suddenly you get one with something blurring past the camera. Instead it's very colourful and 'safe'. Lost your rover? Don't worry, we've got a limitless supply of them.

The analysis of the species didn't seem like the kind of thing a scientist would write. The names were a bit incongruous, too. Also, how could somebody produce a full colour sketch of a typical specimen from a single shot taken at night?

I would gladly have paid to reduce the waiting period, but by the time I was getting fed up of spending four hours between moves I assumed I was pretty much at the end. I wasn't, though. If it had been clear that there was more to do, I would have paid.

Huh, interesting. I haven't tagged any

in my game, so I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for in that photo of yours! ;)

It'd be cool if there were insects, but I'd be really surprised if the rover actually managed to catch photos of any.

I found my rockmole by thinking to myself: 'What a funny rock, let's tag it for fun' -unidentified species- 'Wait, what?'. And that was the only one I ever found, so these are hard to find.
