Games Radar today posted a review of Darwinia. According to the review, the highlights of the game were retrto-style arcade gameplay, strategy. and storyline, while the game's downfalls include repetitive gameplay and graphic issues. Overall, the review gave Darwinia a 6 out of 10 rating.
Developed by Introversion and brought to the Mac by Ambrosia, Darwinia is a digital world inhabited by "Darwinians" that has come under attack from a deadly virus, and you are tasked with destroying this virus or watching Darwinia crumble.
Here's an excerpt from the review:
Eventually you'll need to summon Engineers to grab control towers and collect the "souls" released when you snuff out viruses. Engineers drag souls ten-at-a-time back to Incubators where they're recycled into full-fledged Darwinians, but since you can't interact with them directly (hello Lemmings!), you have to convert a handful into Officers and position them like signposts to guide the remaining greenies to safety. Unfortunately, the path-finding AI is so silly that both your special units and Darwinians will often commit suicide, walking directly into force fields or viral orgies like robotic dimwits.If you would like to try Darwinia, head on over to Macgamefiles to download the demo. The full version can be purchased from Ambrosia's website. Please follow the links below to read the review and to learn more information.
