Mobile games have come a long way in recent years and now some gaming apps rival in quality and technical brilliance even some of the console titles. Evolution: Battle for Utopia, recently released by My.com is one of the newest gems to hit the Apple Store.
Looks great. No ridiculous energy mechanic. Features a surprisingly entertaining touch screen combat system.
Where Evolution: Battle for Utopia succeeds most is in the overall narrative. There's a ton of backstory to all of your crew, the enemies, and the environment, paired with beautifully rendered cutscenes that show your ship transforming into your base and other portions of the planet being terraformed for habitable use. It's definitely a nice surprise to see a lot more time and detail put into modes beyond the standard gameplay.
So far, it’s been a well balanced system and, all things considered, Evolution: Battle for Utopia has plenty of treats waiting for Strategy-RPG fans to delight in.
