Evolush: Evolution Journey ($0.99) by Guava7 lets you reenact the theory of evolution in a challenging fast-paced game. Work your way through six levels of evolution, from the lowly fish to the high-tech space traveler.
The gameplay in Evolush: Evolution Journey is fairly simple, but don’t let that fool you. Each level has its own challenges that need to be overcome before you can move up the evolutionary ladder.
Level one starts at the bottom of the ladder, giving the player control over a fish that must avoid predators in the sea, while collecting gold coins along the way. Yet, as in life, this game only gives you so many chances to live. Every level only provides you with two lives. Once the lives run out, the game is over. The five remaining levels feature a lizard, a monkey, a caveman, a secret agent, and a space-traveler.
Each level of the game involves a different character, a different setting, and new ways to travel across the landscape of the game. Keep your eyes open for words spelled out with the coins. They can be a very cool, but distracting surprise. Also remember to collect as many coins as possible because you need to earn at least 20,000 coins per level in order to unlock the next level of evolution.
Once you get the hang of the game, you should be able to speed right through the levels. However, no matter how good a player you are, everyone needs some help. That’s why the game will throw some power-ups your way. There are three different power-ups: one for extra speed, one for slower speed, and one that helps your character attract every coin in the area.
Evolush: Evolution Journey is a fun game that will keep you busy for hours. Once you start playing, the need to unlock every level will just make you want to play even more. The graphics are bright and colorful, which makes playing the game quite pleasing to the eye. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fast-paced good time.
