Evo Pop is the latest new game from ZeptoLab, the studio behind Cut the Rope, CATS, and – most recently – Robotics!. It’s out now for free on Android.
Fusing physics and strategy, Evo Pop sees you taking control of colorful little squares called Evos. These bizarre creatures live in colonies and survive by eating smaller Evos belonging to different species.
As you can tell from the trailer, Evo Pop is a bizarre, fluid strategy game that distils its main premise down to the simplest possible state. You control your Evos by casting spells to make them jump, multiply, evolve, and so on.
Evolution makes your Evos increasingly powerful, but you can’t rely on raw power. Evo Pop calls for strategic thinking, as plot a course to victory based on your environment and the behaviour and properties of your little Evo soldiers.
Evo Pop contains dozens of worlds, each with its own unique design elements, and you can sample the lot for free right now on the Google Play Store.
User reviews aren’t great so far, but it looks like an interesting idea.
