Description

Evolva is a third-person action game with a difference. After a bizarre biological menace falls on an alien world and sends out massive tendrils to infest the planet with its evil spore, four genetically mutable warriors called GenoHunters are sent in to destroy the infestation before it can spread to other worlds.

You can constantly develop the individual abilities of your four warriors by altering their DNA from the foes they have killed. e.g. kill a frog creature or a striding bird, and the GenoHunters can evolve the abilities of jumping higher and running faster.

Trivia

OEM release

The full version of the game was included with Creative's 3D Blaster GeForce as part of the package to show off the GPU's capabilities. However, the game was nearly unplayable due to many graphic glitches, until newer driver updates.

Variations

Interplay repeatedly advertised prior to the game's release that there are over one billion possible variations on the basic genohunter. Impressive, there's no way to prove it, but impressive.
