The Apple games web site has posted feature on two recently released Ambrosia Software games, Darwinia and GooBall. The article compares the two games and gives thoughts on the respective qualities of each game.
Here's a clip from the feature:
Despite their outward differences, Ambrosia Software’s Darwinia and GooBall share the same well-known motif found in Robert A. Heinlein’s novel Stranger in a Strange Land and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ character Tarzan, among others: The outsider who finds himself in a culture alien to the way he was raised but who must come to understand it if he wants to thrive. Both games place you in that role.For the whole feature, visit the links section.
Apple Feature: Darwinia and GooBall
You find yourself inside Darwinia. Dr. Sepulveda’s alarm over your arrival soon turns to the hope that you can help him. A virus, represented by insect-like red creatures that slither across the landscape, has infected Darwinia, and Dr. Sepulveda wants you to help him destroy it.
You play yourself in Darwinia, but in GooBall you step into the gloppy boots of an alien from another world. No matter which you choose, both games require you to learn as you play, figuring out what works and what doesn’t. Remember, though, that you have amassed a wealth of knowledge while playing previous strategy and arcade games. Use that experience to your advantage.
