Multiwinia: Survival Of The Flattest Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld has published a new review of Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest, the recently release real time strategy title from Introversion Software and Ambrosia Software. Returning to the unique world of Darwinia, the game allows players to choose from six game modes on over 40 maps as they battle for stick figure supremacy. Macworld gave the game a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Unlike many RTS games, Multiwinia doesnít have resource gathering, tech trees, or base construction. Instead, there are six different mission types: domination, king of the hill, capture the statue, assault, rocket riot, and blitzkrieg. Each map has multiplayer support up to four players, unlike Darwinia.

In each mission, you gain reinforcements every few minutes or by capturing spawn points, flags, or enemy territory. The winner is often determined by who has the most points at the end of the time limit (calculated by how much of the mission objective youíve accomplished) or if youíve successfully eliminated all of the opposing forces. Each mission takes between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

I recommend the domination scenario maps and competing against three other computer players. The artificial intelligence can be challenging and there are a number of creative solutions to cross over land and conquer your opponents. Itís a real thrill to throw a couple transports on your enemyís unprotected flank or drop a monster on their spawn point. The chaotic pace ensures youíll always be watching for enemy movements, air strikes, or sneak attacks.
