About the Game

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is a old school style shooter, but remixed for the 21st century with next generation graphics and deep, modern gameplay. Playing is simple: you are a geometric "ship" trapped in a grid world, facing off against waves of deadly wanderers, snakes, and repulsars. Your aim is to survive long enough to set a high score!
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.

System Requirements

    Minimum: Windows XP, 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) CPU, 512MB RAM, DirectX 9.0c, DirectX Video Card (128MB memory - Shader Model 2.0 support required), DirectSound-compatible sound card, 150MB free HD space, WEI Rating: 4.0 (3.0 required)

I had this game when I was a console gamer.. Now let me say, It has to be one of the best indie games ever made! Just hours of fun, And trying to beat your high score and challanging your friends. never ending fun :D Pump up the tunes.. Bust out some drink and and enjoy :) I would however suggest using a gamepad. I hope you all have just as much fun! 10/10

A tremendous bang for your buck, providing a very excellent arcade shooting experience. While it seems more optimized for a game pad, my best scores were generally from using a mechanical keyboard.

I wouldn't say GW is a *bad* game per se, but one of the most entertaining aspects of the xbox 360 version was the leaderboard system. Since this game only has local (offline) leaderboards, there isn't much to propel you to get a braggable high score if you don't have friends around to play it. It isn't really Bizarre Creation's fault that there isn't steamworks integration here, since they are closed down, but that was probably the second most important feature beside the main game.

That being said, the core gameplay is exactly the same as the xbox 360 version and there is full controller support, which is nice.
