a review by Nalini Haynes
Distributor: V Republic
Release: 6 October 2010
V Evolution is an online game, available for login or demo. I looked at the demo version. The introduction was overly melodramatic while reminiscent of the Borg seeking to assimilate people. After being transformed into a some strange sea creature, you swim around looking to interact with the world around you. The objective is to reach the goal without running out of energy. To keep energy reserves up, you either find sources of energy in the game or, surprise, surprise, enter codes from cans of V.
This is a 2D platform style game with little appeal, especially when the screen load times are longer than the time taken in each screen.
