Avoid the spawning enemies, and shoot them down for points. You can also fire smart bombs, which destroy all bad guys on the screen. Save these up for when the going gets really tough!
The more bad guys you kill, the higher your score multiplier goes (2x, 4x, etc.). The higher your multiplier, the more you can score. But don't die, as you lose your multiplier and have to build it up again from scratch!
Addictive "just one more go" gameplay, with mesmerizing graphics.
Pixel perfect recreation of the Xbox Live Arcade game.
Support for keyboard, mouse, and dual-stick gamepad play.

Although I enjoyed it more in X360 wanted to have it also on PC. Playing it with a good command is mandatory. It'S All a madness of lights and explosions. Fast, frantic and addictive. 7/10 Generator of epilepsy in power.

Take charge of an X-Box Controller! Hold on to him! Use the left stick to control and the right Stick to baller! Shoot at everything that moves and everything that doesn't move! Press the right Trigger for a nuclear Liberation strike! It doesn't take More than that for a good Game!

Great Game with cool Effects and different Opponents. It's like a little Mini Name for in between but a lot of Fun and gets really hard in the End. I Can only recommend, one is quickly recorded. The Price, however, is a bit too expensive I find. (Metascore [76/100]??? bit too little I'd give loose 90!)

Very good game, compatibility with Controls, super graphic design. It reminds Me a lot of old Arcades, marks your score record and saves it. Too bad it's not the second part. It Is Worth mentioning that I met him on the Nintendo Wii. Despite not having history, just click and play, and always the same, is great, very good, to play with friends and save records. : ') Old times.

-just a Game Mode. -on the (non-xBox) Gamepad no Way to change the terrible Key Assignment (Firing with the Main Buttons-turned 90 °!). The right analog stick remains completely without Function! -there are no important Game elements such as collecting the Diamonds To the Height of the Multsplicator or certain Opponent Classes. Even on the mobile Port of the Game for Smartphones, these Points were all better solved-so definitely Fingers off!

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved Is a colorful and uncomplicated Arcade ball Shop. The Player controls a geometric Figure that must defend against other Characters. The Aim of the Shoot 'Em-Up is to stay Alive as long as possible and to achieve as high a high Score as possible. Graphically, the Game is kept in the classic 2D look, yet a true Effect fireworks Display can be seen. Each shot down figure explodes into colorful Individual Parts and in the Mass of enemies to be fired, the many Explosive Effects also like to lose track. The best way to play Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is with a Controller that controls the Character and the Target Best-The control by keyboard and Mouse, on the other Hand, is quite useless and just unpleasant. A perfect arcade Mini-game for in between (if you own the one Controller and are into a constantly repetitive Gameplay)
