Description

A complex game in which you can create your own ecosystems, animals or vegetables, then watch them eat, evolve, mate, or die.

Feel free to create funky animals! How about a giant snail that would have to eat several trees each day to survive - or a small kangaroo that would lay eggs and eat only bugs? You can even edit their DNA code, and make your animals mutate.

Trivia

Amiga version

This was the first Amiga game for which the AGA version (for A1200 and A4000 based systems) was released before the standard version. As the VGA PC graphics could be ported directly across to the 256-colour AGA mode, this made the conversion easier. Several Mindscape titles around the time also offered AGA enhancements.
