Introversion's Darwinia has received another review from the PC side, this time from PC Boomtown. The uniqueness of Darwinia's real time strategy game play has impressed many reviewers lately and led to favorable scores. PC Boomtown is no exception, giving Darwinia 8 out of 10.
For a game that looks so abstract Darwinia is remarkably immersive. A lot of this is down to the intricate campaign structure that actually makes you feel like you’re part of this strange little world. You begin to sympathise for these little green guys – especially when you here their anguished screams as they are eaten by prowling virii. The Mac version of the game is brought to the platform by the good folks at Ambrosia Software. For the full review click on the link below.
PC Boomtown: Darwinia Review
Even the interface, from the menu screen to the world map, is lovingly conceived and all part of the overall experience. Like in its previous effort, hacking title Uplink, Introversion doesn’t want you to think you’re playing a game. Of course you know you it isn’t real (unless you’re playing it with the confines of a rather snug jacket and a padded cell) but with a little suspension of disbelief the scenario becomes quite plausible.
