„Záchrana virtuálního světa.“

Přicházíte právě včas! Doktor Sepulveda se zrovna snaží zabránit katastrofě, ale rozsah škod je mnohem větší, než se původně zdálo. Bez vaší rychlé pomoci, je šance na záchranu mizivá. Nebezpečný virus ohrožuje jeho mnohaletou práci, svět plný polygonů a života, tajemnou Darwinii...

Tuto hru lze označit jako akční strategii, nečekejte ale nic složitého, ovládat budete pouze čtyři typy jednotek. Nejčastěji se ke slovu dostane tříčlenný útočný tým, který můžete ovládat i přímo, kdy jedním tlačítkem střílíte a druhým házíte granáty. Dále je tu létající robot, sbírající duše padlých jednotek a opravující budovy. Důležitý je také velitel, protože pouze on, dokáže koordinovat pohyb spřátelených darwinianů. Později získáte ještě jednu posilu, ale nebudu vám kazit překvapení.

Průběh jednotlivých misí, je většinou dost podobný. Útočným týmem si prostřílíte cestu k inkubátoru, kde se z nasbíraných duší vytvoří skupinka darwinianů, které musíte bezpečně dovést na různá místa na mapě. Po několikátém opakování stejných úkolů, začne být hra lehce stereotypní. Zklamaný jsem byl také z neschopnosti jednotek, při hledání cesty terénem, pravidelně se totiž zasekávají a čekají na pomoc.

Skvělá je ovšem atmosféra hry, díky které máte pocit, že jste skutečně v úplně jiném světě. Všechny objekty jsou velice jednoduché, ale jejich stylizace působí dobrým dojmem. Autoři navíc úžasně pracují také s barvami, což vynikne hlavně při pohledech na celou mapu. Povedené je i chování darwinianů, nejsou to žádní hrdinové a střílí jen v kritických situacích. Jejich vyplašené reakce na nebezpečí, vám proto často vykouzlí úsměv na tváři.

Pokud tedy rádi zkoušíte neobvyklé hry, pak máte mé doporučení. V opačném případě ale koupi dobře zvažte, nemusí sednout každému.

PS: Před spuštěním první mise, si nezapomeňte zahrát prolog, který najdete v menu.

It's fun!

The retro, polygonal graphics, (tasteful) chiptune soundtrack, and overall atmosphere are really interesting to experience. The gameplay is fun in a non-frustrating way - it's hard to get into a position where you lose, and even if you aren't employing the optimal strategy for a level, given enough time, you will be able to beat each stage in different ways. I rarely got frustrated with this game and never really felt bored, even though a lot of the gameplay isn't necesarilly that complex. The story doesn't dominate the experience, but the brief sections where you learn more about Darwinia are definitely rewarding.

Overall, all these little details don't really matter in the face of the fact that I constantly was entertained while playing this game and never really felt bad, something that even modern games don't necesarilly provide.

If you're expecting a complex RTS, this is not that game. Think of it as more of "digital weeding", as you slowly and carefully purge the viruses through each stage using a variety of tools.

I received this game as part of a Humble Bundle and it's a great play at a low price point. If I had a problem with the game, it's the same as many people: it's too short. Otherwise, it's a perfect little arcade-puzzler that will engross and entertain you for a few hours.

If you like the retro-graphics, don't mind micromanaging dumb units in RTS as the primary gameplay, and get this on sale (I got it for like $1.45 with Multiwinia during the 2014 Exploration sale) then you'll probably like it fine. Otherwise you probably won't.

The game definitely pays tribute to Tron and other such digital-grid visual experiences.
Regarding Tron, anybody else notice the bombers for airstrikes in this game are called "Invaders"? Heh.

Great game that can bring you hours of enjoyment. The controls are a little wonky and there is a slight learning curve but once you get past that, you realize how amazing the game really is. The story is great and the worlds are beautiful and the retro style graphics paired with the old school techno, make it that much better. I do believe for a 9 year old game though, the price is a little steep at $10. If you can find it on sale, I say go for it!

This is the only strategy game I feel good when playing. Normally, strategy games are either so insultingly easy you steamroll the enemies without really working out a plan, or complicated enough that I don't understand what's going on when I'm suddenly wiped out.
This game isn't like either of those! There are challenging moments, frustrating events, hilarious little quirks, and of course, beautiful digital environments, but all in all, the game is really genuinely fun to play. I just wish there was more to do, since it ends so quickly.

Even though it is an RTS game, it reminds me of god-games.
It might be the setting or the 'story', I'm not sure.
It doesn't have a multiplayer mode (however, a separate multiplayer game called "Multiwinia" exists).

What it does do, however, is mixing genres into something both unique and enjoyable.
It doesn't fail to create an interesting atmosphere, mainly due to the soundtrack, which reminds me of Introversion's later title "DEFCON".
Not having humans but rather "abstract virtual digital lifeforms" who can't speak and who don't have any emotions (or do they?) probably adds to that fact, along with the "cyber-world" that you play on/in, which does have water, hills et al, but, after all, also has a digitalized and abstract look-and-feel.

The featured game mechanics were not surprising, but overall very enjoyable.
Along with an intuitive control mechanism the game was easy to handle.

The included "loaders" (intro animations) are a nice gimmick.
One of them parodies a typical 80s crack intro that looked so authentic, a steam employee believed there had been a compromise and thus delayed the game's Steam release.

In the end, I hope you have realized how this isn't your normal off-the-shelf strategy game.
You might want to go watch some gameplay videos on your favourite video platform to check if you can cope with the game's style.

Played a really old demo back in 2005 and still remember the amazement I had playing this. Surprised it was still being develpoed. It is a simple game with an engaging story. The retro design depends on the players taste but for the game, it represents the birthplace of the Darwinians. Even bought it on Steam Sale. Woohoo! Merry Christmas.

A minimalist world but engaging. I felt very protective of my little green icons. There were times that I would restart a level if I had unacceptable losses.

It could have been much more, but it still is really good. What I mean is, it lacks complexity that I wish there was in the game.

If you like what it looks like you will probably like how it plays.

I personally liked the game.I beat the whole story in 13 hours (that is killing every enemy on the map not just completeing each objective) and enjoyed every bit of it! Frist i'll tell you what i liked about the game: The story, the art style, and gameplay! I haven't read much about the story in other reviews but i like it and thats all ill say. The art style is supposed to look like you are in a computer world(kinda like tron) so it is really simple but kinda "cute" or cartoony. The game play is what everyone is talking about so first the problems.
I couldn't unplug my headset while playing the game or else an error would appear and it would crash.
The Darwinians are like cattle where they move in straight lines but if you use officers correctly then you're fine.
a bug happened where i couldn't build anything but restarting the game fixed that.
The first mission (not prolouge) is really boring and that deterrs many people.
Positive:
Alot of game time for 1$ (currently 13hrs)
I thought the sound effects were funny.
Some stratiegic thought and tactics do go into this game. (its not just run at each other, get more units and repeat)
You unlock something at the end that increases the amount of time you could play it! ;)
Nice soundtrack
There is alot more that i like but i must go to the counter arguments or problems.
Dubhe said
"- Units with bizarre controls, like:
--- Left click to select
--- Left click to move
--- Left click and hold to to special action 1
--- Left click and hold near the unit to do special action 2"
I don't know what game he was playing but you do use left click to select and move but you hold right click to shoot and while holding right click if you left click they do their special.
Dubhe also said
"--- Don't worry, though, because your units will randomly exit and reenter the turret every couple of seconds! Even during battle!
--- Also, you can't control where the turret fires! And it does damage to friendly units!
--- And, it's inexplicably easy for enemy units to kick your guys out and take control of the turret!"
My units never reentered and exited turrets unless the units inside the turret were killed. You can control where the turret fires but darwinians have to be inside and your units can also kick enemy out of turrets too. (kinda funny when they just keep kicking each other.) XD
Lidion45 said
"Unable to select more than one unit at once?!?!
Clunky controls for moving units
Units don't fire by themselves, yet randomly play the shooting sound when you're not looking?
Bullets bouncing on uneven terrain makes shooting very awkward given most of the map is mountainous"
Yes the first is true but i didn't have a problem with it. My units did fire by themselves (maybe he/she didn't have darwinian reasearched to level 2?) Bullets do bounce on terrain and sometimes that got annoying so i avoided terrain like that.

Overall i loved the game even though it does have its little bugs and problems but wouldn't buy it for the 10$ (or 20$ for both) I would get them on sale so you get both games for 1.30$.
(No offence to the other reviews I just used yours as counter arguments.)

A very strange RTS game, you don´t control any bases instead you control some units to manipulate agents in the map and killing threats , the A.I sometimes is very dumb and can be sligtly frustrating but the plot is very interesting. At firts it´s hard to grasp on it, but once you understand it it becomes easy and manegable, Recomended only if you are pacient and looking for a non-conventional RTS. / Un RTS muy extraño, no controlas bases, en vez de eso controlas unidades para manipular ag entes en el mapa y matar amenzas, la I.A puede ser muy tonta lo que resulta algo frustrante pero la trama es bastante interesante. Al principio es dificil entenderle, pero ya que le entiendes es sencillo y manejable. Recomendado si eres paciente y quieres una experiencia distinta a un RTS convencional

Pros!
  • Lovely graphics and colours
  • A good idea
  • Nice camera controls

Cons!
  • The tutorial is not a tutorial! More like 10 minutes of pressing 'H' and reading lines and lines of help suggestions
  • Really annoying sound effects
  • Unable to select more than one unit at once?!?!
  • Clunky controls for moving units
  • Units struggle to path-find along a straight line, nevermind corners and obstacles!
  • Units don't fire by themselves, yet randomly play the shooting sound when you're not looking?
  • Bullets bouncing on uneven terrain makes shooting very awkward given most of the map is mountainous
  • First level is very very boring, and doesn't really explain anything about the troops themselves.
    For instance, what happens when the engineers collect 10 orbs? They just sit around like potatoes being useless?

If these issues are fixed, I will happily recommend this game. Until then, nope!
Also minor quarrel is that if you go near the ground, the texture is very blurry. Considering that the texture is just triangles, it would be nice if they were more crisp!

výborná akční strategie pro každého 8-bitového fandu, která mne tenkrát chytla a nepustila, dokud jsem ji nedohrál. Sice jde jen o pár skladeb, ale Darwinia má i výtečný soundtrack. Myslím, že se jedná o originální a nadčasovou hru, ke které se chystám při troše volného času opět vrátit!

Darwinia is one of my favorite games of all time. So it gets an obvious reccomendation from me. There is a lot going on with Darwinia and I've never played anything like it. It's one of those types of games that is really hard to describe, and you can only really understand after playing it for a bit. It's a weird game to get into at first. But once you get past the first two or so levels and understand what's going on it really takes off.

So basically what's going on with this game is your thrown into a level, and your given a few goals to complete the level. There are a lot of different objectives in the game, but most of the time your goal is to kill all the enemies on the map, and move your little Darwinians to key locations. What's really nice about the levels is all tools the game gives you tie in together in really clear ways. You make soilders to kill enemies and create souls, the engineers retrieve the souls and bring them to the soul collector to generate new darwininans, and the Darwinians interact with the map and you don't have direct control over them. It all comes together really well.

My favorite part about the game though is how much freedom you get. It sounds weird but let me explain. Darwinia perfectly lets you experience it at your own pace, and in your own way. There's so many ways to handle each situation in the game, and you're encouraged to handle it any way you want to. You can be super effiecient and try to carefully mine every enemies' soul, or you can do things more crazy and charge in with air strikes. Both are valid strategies in Darwinia. You can try spam engineers to take over a semi-hostile base and raise hell from inside the enemy territory, or you can enter from the shores and work your way in. The game doesn't care which way you do it. Nothings timed, nothings scored. And I love that. Because if you had a score, or a time limit it means you'd have to play the game in the most effient way, but without those things I felt more encouraged to try out crazier ideas, or ideas that I knew were just stupid, but its ok because it's fun. And that's what Darwinia encourages. It's all free. But it's more than just that. The game let's you jump into and out of levels at anytime and it you'll be able to jump right back into exactly where you left off instantly. You can acess more than one level at once so if you get bored or stuck on one level, you can jump out and start working on another level. It's great! Probably my absolute favorite part about Darwinia is how free the camera is, and that's a really weird thing to say, but lemme explain. The camera in Darwinia is very free. You can move it to any location, and look at anything from almost any angle. It's almost like a camera you'd see in an editor of some sort. But it really really works in Darwinia. Because the camera is so free it really makes the game feel like a world that's actively happening, and you're just interacting with it. Almost like a little toybox world, or at least that's how it makes me feel anyway.

With the camera, and entire game giving you so much freedom, and a lot of the units do things on their own in this game, ontop of the very simple art style(which is perfect for this game), and the great ambience the sounds create, I felt like I could get really immersed into game. I liked to put the camera at dramatic angles and imagine all sorts of adventures and stories as things were happening. I've taken more screenshots in this game than any other. So basically what I'm getting at, is if you like to imagine weird stuff or like to get really immersed into a game both strategically and artistically, then this game does the trick.

And the game has a level editor and mod creator. Yeah. ♥♥♥♥in sweet. This is one of those games that I have NO idea why this isn't more popular. And the story is really weird and cool. And it's really existential and you are an active part of the story... like you the person sitting at their computer, not you the player in the game. It's a bit weird, and I didnt really understand what was going on for awhile. But I really like that kind of stuff so the plot I really really liked.

So final reccomendations: Definity get this game. It's amazing. It really really appeals to what I like personally, so you probably wont think it's the most amazing thing like I do, but I think you'll definitly have fun. Don't get it if you don't think you'll be able to handle the controls. Darwinia can also be really weird difficult to understand at first so if you're not willing to do that, then you probably wont enjoy it either.

Anyway, love this game. Personal favorite. And it's $10. So no excuses. That's less than a movie, or dinner at a nice restaurant.

Hard to describe this game, apart from it being so damn good and unique.

It has a lemmings feel to it. Great hacker vibe. Challenging. Great style. Amazingly fun mechanics that you just have to try to convince yourself.

Try to survive and evolve.

An absolutely wonderful casual game. You dont need the latest and greatest hardware to play this one on the road. It doesn't eat your laptop's battery for breakfast. The 8-bit sound track is awesome, gives it that retro feel, it only enhances the game play. As for the graphics, love the volumetric effects and the old looking shadow effects. Very engaging, on the edge of your seat as you get attacted from all sides just trying to keep ahead of the battle.

Bought this originally on CD-ROM when it came out. I'm glad Steam released it on OS X. Brings back the early 2000's.

I don't know what compelled me to even buy this since I can't stand RTS games generally, but it didn't take long before Darwinia became one of my all-time favorites. Something in the way it's presented just made sense to me, and I found the context to be especially endearing.

Part of what really appealed to me was how simple and straightforward everything was: soldiers shoot stuff, engineers build stuff, etc. Even the upgrade options, in the context of file updates (v2.0), made everything feel more accessible. The game code is mercifully stable for an "indie" game and I found myself wasting hours defeating every last enemy and making sure that every uninhabited piece of land was repopulated. I frequently found myself rooting for individual scouts and soldiers that bravely out-maneuvered their enemies. It really says something about a game that can make you feel so attached to its literal pixels.

The excellent score and sound effects coupled with the game's relaxingly retro aesthetic have proven great for replayability, making Darwinia a world I'm happy to revisit often. 9/10.
