Combining fast-paced action with strategic battle planning, Darwinia features a novel and intuitive control mechanism, a graphical style ripped from 80's retro classics like Tron and Defender, and a story concerning a tribe of nomadic sprites trapped in a modern 3D world.

This Game I return some childhood because that game had it on the Xbox 360 and I Sobrecalento and therefore appeared the 3 red lights... For about 5 years... I Found steam and I could buy it with the package introversion and enjoy everything! Like I love things like this:D Calf 15/10 I recommend this to understand a bit the game and also to understand the other "MULTIWINIA" Good... Steam... Recovering childhoods... From... Times... Immemorial...

It Could be considered a strategy game quite different from the ones we are used to seeing. I liked it a lot; It has a unique style for battles, history, missions,... I Especially liked the story. Some enemies are quite complicated to kill and you have to be creating squads constantly to make up for the ones you lose. You Can Collect the souls of those who die to create Darwinians that are under your control... Like I said, it's quite unique. It took Me about nine hours to complete it.

Highly recommended Game. Do Not Listen to what you put in your store page, the game has already several languages, including Castilian, and has full support for the command of the 360 (and I guess for others too). At first, it may be somewhat messy, if Noi do the tutorial or lend little Antencon to it, but once you know the basic, you foul thing bad. Besides, you don't have to walk around thinking about resources, you create the squads, engineers, etc. and as you want you can destroy them and create others, because you have limited (in principle to 3 then up to 5) active programs to the Vezmasi that if you need another square and not You need an engineer, be the engineer and Hello squad. With keyboard and mouse you drive to the squadron pointing and clicking, but with command, you move directly with the joystick and is muuucho more comfortable and effective and are just 50MB and does not ask for any resources

Very original... And very cheap! A style of play reminiscent of Age of Empires but centered on the growth of a race: the Darwinian. It Is a digital race (in the form of pseudohumanos that appear to be made of huge pixels of green color) created by a computerist with the purpose of inventing the first digital species capable of recreating and expanding itself. But there has to be an argument in the game, right? That's where the virus comes into play. A virus has attacked the creator's system and invaded much of the "digital Zoo." These viruses take the form of Red arrows (imagine the typical turbo arrows in racing games but narrower and longer) and also some insect like a spider. The Game also explains who we are (the player), how we got there and what our mission is, but not aprofundizaré on this issue. I'm running out of space, so: SCORE: 8.5 over 10 Jonathan B.
A big advantage of the games that it is easy in all aspects – controls, gameplay, etc. It may be not for everyone, but I liked it for that. Also a good game to play with kids. Watch the trailer or download the demo and try for yourself. The only drawback is that there’s no multiplayer.
