Description from the packaging.

Before civilization... there was Evolution.

More than 360 million years ago, life crawled out of the ocean. Yesterday, a hairless plains ape learned to talk and to make fire. In between, amphibians, dinosaurs, pterodactyls, mastodons and sabre-toothed tigers came and went. Welcome to Evolution, where life evolves at breakneck speeds of 30,000 years per second!

You are thrown into this evolutionary maelstrom. To survive, your creatures must fight ferociously and strategically to evolve into intelligent life. You battle up to five other players, attacking them, crowding them out of prime feeding ground and striving to grab key positions on the Tree of Life. As if your opponents aren't challenge enough, the Earth itself is in constant flux. Continents drift and collide; sea levels rise and fall; glaciers advance and retreat; comets and asteroids strike the Earth; enormous volcanic eruptions spew lava in all directions; supernovae irradiate the world. Can your creatures thrive or will competitors and the elements wipe you out?

Highly customizable with multiple map views.

  • View more than 160 3-D rendered fully animated species.
  • Play across the whole planet- from pole to pole.
  • Experience infinite replayability with randomly generated worlds, as well as an "historical Earth" scenario.
  • Access a bestiary with information on all the creatures and the evolution of life on land.
  • Deal with disasters. Lead your species through asteroid impacts, ice ages and massive volcanism.
  • Compete against up to five players over a network.
  • Watch and plan as maps move and evolve throughout the game. Continents collide and form mountains, sea levels rise and fall, and climates change.
