Evolva PC | 660 MB

Genre: Action

In the game, you command the Evolva, a team of genetically mutable "genohunters" on a mission to rid a planet on the edge of the galaxy of a world-eating parasite and its spawn. Your four genohunters are capable of mutating to incorporate genes unique to the aliens you encounter on your crusade, as they physically append new weapons and morph to reflect their added abilities. You actually control the development and balance of various genetic abilities in the mutation screen: Each time a genohunter mutates, you are presented with two genetic paths to choose from, each with benefits and shortcomings, until you accumulate more genes to achieve a net increase in power.

Evolva adds some slick visual touches to remind you of the genohunters' mutating abilities. Switching weapons actually causes the selected weapon to grow out of your genohunter's limbs. Different mutation paths superficially distinguish your characters over time; as they mutate, their color will change and various crests, spikes, and fins will grow on their bodies. Genohunters can earn up to five levels of proficiency in various weapons and special abilities, and the higher levels of the running and jumping abilities will make the character look noticeably leaner and more fit. However, such details don't mean Evolva is a virtual life game, because by and large, the superficial changes you'll see on your genohunters are just that. As such, it's unlikely that you'll make much use of the genohunter export feature, which theoretically lets you swap your mutations with your friends.
