Darwinia for MacOS X Released

Ambrosia Software has released Darwinia for MacOS X. “Combining fast-paced action with strategic battle planning, Darwinia is a real-time strategy game like no other. Darwinia combines state of the art fractal generated landscapes with iconic arcade sprites, an intuitive control mechanism, and a story concerning a tribe of video game sprites trapped in a modern 3D game world.” In short, the graphics are a fascinating combination of “retro” fractal styles and modern 3D, and the system requirement are not too steep. Darwinia is also available for Windows and Linux.

Has the design changed enough? You be the judge. Personally, offering two more color choices and a slightly different interface will not suffice.
