Gamespot recently reviewed Darwinia, Introversion Software's unique real time strategy game. Brought to the Mac by Ambrosia Software, the game drops players into a virtual theme park populated with creatures who are in need of rescue from a deadly virus. Gamespot gave Darwinia an 8.3 out of 10.

From the review:

The gameplay is solid here as well, and it offers a good mix of strategy, action, and even a bit of puzzle-solving. You can't directly control the Darwinians, but you can create different programs that you can use to fight enemies, collect spirits, or herd and transport Darwinians. By holding the Alt key, you'll bring up the task manager, which is the simple menu system that you can use to create and modify units and check the level objectives. To create a program, you simply draw a gesture with the mouse. For example, to create a squad, which you need for fighting enemies, you have to draw a triangle. The controls do take a bit of getting used to, but it's worth it to leave the play screen free of the usual clutter of RTS games.
