About This Game

Create oil drills and solar farms in the business strategy game Evopollution.
Your aim is to turn the money you start with into $1,000,000 out of the profits you earn from buildings like oil drills or gas plants.

Beware the pollution you create, if an area becomes too polluted it could summon meteors, lightning or even a giant worm creature that could destroy your hard work.
Maintain your world with trees and keep the pollution low, or even go green with solar panels and wind turbines.

Play on areas like the mountains or the snowy plains, earth not hard enough? Try Mars instead and terraform the planet back to its original state.

The concept of Evopollution is nice, but it has boring gameplay, simplistic design, pointless goals and isnt fun.

To be honest I kind of feel cheated by this game.

I bought not sure what to expect and loaded it up thinking little building sim with cute graphics. When all I got was what was essentially a one screen flash game I was more than just a little disappointed. I think this could best be summed up by an impulse buy without doing the proper research and I hope to save other people from that impulse.

If you're looking for what is essentially a phone or flash game this game might tickle your fancy. If you're looking for any kind of depth or strategy...might want to look elsewhere.

Evopollution tasks you with gaining one million dollars by setting up polluting and/ or clean energy sources: you'll have to keep your pollution levels under control or disasters such as lightning, comets and a big worm will destroy your assets.
Too bad the actual game is sadly marred by technical problems, weird design decisions and a truly dull gameplay, thus failing to live up to its interesting Store description.


-had an intriguing premise

-seeing pollution interact with the environment (with bushes and trees getting bare, then growing again if you purify the zone) was interesting


-soundtrack gets grating fast

-save game doesn't work, I tried several times on all levels but I'd never save my progress, forcing me to restart each time

-unbalanced gameplay, a polluting asset will damage its surrounding area in seconds, summoning all disasters in a quite wide area: you'll have to spend 3x the asset's cost in trees to balance it out and hope a random disaster doesn't destroy what you've built right away. The various energy sources also have skewed price/ profit values, with some being quite useless

-even when it works, the gameplay is simply dull and boils down to building a few assets then wait for a LONG time until you get enough cash to build more. There's no way to speed up time so your best bet is running it windowed and do something else

-weird controls, you can close certain menus with a click while others only react to you pressing Esc, the map only scrolls with the mouse etc..

-incomprehensible design choices, beginner mode is actually harder than normal mode due to the fact that you have to unlock assets yourself, certain buildings do nothing at all and only cost money and waste space on the small map


Evopollution's biggest sin is the fact it turns into a waiting game in a matter of minutes as you start up a game, spend your starting money and are then supposed to wait 10 to 30 minutes to get enough funds to build something else while starting blankly at the screen. This simply isn't fun and makes the game feel like one of those mobile apps you run in the background and check a few times a day.

Add to this its skewed pollution model, where most assets require you to waste several times their purchase price and land space to counteract their environmental damage, unrealistic objectives (one million $ will take ages), extremely low production values and a broken save feature: you'll quickly realize why Evopollution feels like a badly programmed flash game at best, one that'd not be worth playing even if it was free.

The only reason you'd start up the game is to get its cards if, like me, you got it on a bundle: everyone else can safely skip this one.

Evopollution is like a mobile game you have to leave open to pass the time to collect resources.

That isn't a good idea on mobile it's not a good idea on PC.
