  • Dated graphics will turn some players away

Evolva offers a unique action experience that revolves around evolution. The game was released in 2000 for Windows.


In Evolva players take control of four powerful Genohunters that can alter their DNA by absorbing genes from their fallen foes. This race of Genohunters was created by humans in order to protect themselves from the various threats of the galaxy.

The game boasts plenty of options for players to develop their warriors with thousands of combinations for players to experience. Some popular mutations include powerful leaps, flaming vomit, powerful claws, brain scrambling, explosives and even electrical attacks. Players can evolve each of their Genohunters separately so you can create a team around your preferred playstyle. Changes to your DNA are also shown visually on your Genohunters, they will change colours, grow in size and gain new horns as their power increases.

Gameplay in Evolva has players controlling their team of four in a third person squad based manner. Players can choose which one of their Genohunters to control directly while issuing orders to the rest of their team. Orders are mostly simple attack, move and stay commands with most of the work being done by the impressive AI to keep you focused on the action. Players can also use their Genohunters in unique ways thanks to the camera screens that let you see what each of your characters is seeing.


The campaign portion of Evolva will take you across 12 different worlds where players will battle against the parasite guardians that come in all shapes and sizes. Players will also have to defeat a number of bosses on their journey.

Overall Evolva is a unique action game that is hard to put down thanks to the large number of mutations that players can explore.
