A sequel later appears in Citrus Tower under the title Second Contact.
As is expected, the gameplay is around translating what the Martian says. This is done by hitting the button in the same way that the Martian shows, as the alien will say something in a beat, and you must match said beat to translate him properly.
Good dialog (Japanese)
People of Earth,
how do you do?
I live on Mars. (I am a Martian.)
We're glad you made it. (I want to become,)
You want to meet (really good friends)
my leader? (with you all.)
Last time... (Recently,)
Earthings visited... (I became aware.)
You left... (Katsudon)
behind PORK RICE BOWLS!! (is crazy delish!)
Mars will never... (And so)
be the same. (everyone,)
Don't be a stranger! (our paths cross again!)
Bad dialog (Japanese)
Hey, carbon blobs! (Hey, you pricks!)
You are weird looking! (Sup?)
I am your ruler now. (It's me, of course!)
Hoping for... (With you pricks,)
mercy? (I wanna be)
Not a chance. (crappy friends with ya.)
Bow, worms! (Pfft! (losers))
Now I am... (How can I put it...)
hungry! (I'm hungry.)
Are you done? (It's a pain in the ass though,)
Hurry up and leave! (Pfft! (you losers))
I care not for... (I mean, whatever,)
your species. (you scumbags.)
But I hunger. (How can I put it,)
So hungry. (I'm hungry.)
Begone, insects! (Pfft! (losers))
