    Combining two games in one, Darwinia+ is a fantastic game that works well on the 360.

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to control the fates of a race of green stick figures? No? Well with Darwinia+ on the X360, you can help the little green guys survive a threat of extinc...

    Darwinia is the best thing to ever happen to the XBLA strategy genre, miss out at your own loss!

    Rated on March 31, 2010 by ironman_tetsuo

    If you missed this game the first time around on the PC and have 1200pts to spare and a penchant for RTS games you can't go wrong with this little gem. You will fall in love with the little green g...

    At first I was like "This looks like it might be dumb". Boy was I wrong! This game is addicting! Fun impressive gameplay

    One word: Addicting. That pretty much explains the game. Many levels of fun gameplay that is sure to keep you occupied for a long time. I at first thought it wouldn't be that great, but when I started...

    This is the underappreciated game of 2005-06. It is fascinating and addictive and not as simple as it appears.

    Darwinia should be noticed by the real-time strategy genre and copied for all its worth. Generally, the genre has moved into greater and greater building complexity and flashier graphics, yet never i...

    A fun game that stands out from the crowd.

    Rated on January 09, 2008 by thiefGarrett

    It could be argued that independent works, be they in the medium of games, music, or film, should be judged on a different scale than their counterparts with corporate backing. I think this argument ...

    Great Single player innovative RTS.

    Rated on May 29, 2006 by Alkpaz

    Darwinina is a game that is very innovative and breathes a breath of fresh air into the RTS genre. First off the gfx are intentionally 80's style retro. Thus they are bright and very polygonal with ni...

    old graphics, new game style

    Rated on January 23, 2008 by penguinboy95

    Like i said in the name of the review the graphics look vary old fashioned but don't let that confuse you. The light and explosions are better than in most games. The name also says it's a new gamin...

    Highly addictive. The 3D engine looks great. The story is addicting. This is what I call a "3D Sidescroller." If you haven't already, download Steam ( and try out the demo...

    The only thing that kept it from being a 10 for me was it's brevity and minimal replay value.

    Rated on April 05, 2007 by VivaNOLA

    This is probably one of the most gratifying games I've ever played. The primitive polygonal style is evocative of Tron and somehow it doesn't feel cheap, just beautiful. The only problem I had with ...

    Inspired and unique RTS, though the cracks have begun to show.

    Rated on October 18, 2013 by supermajic

    Darwinia is sort of like God Sim RTS. You play as a human, manipulating and controlling sentient 'life' in a digital world - whether they are self-aware or not is unknown or otherwise not explicitly t...
