Multiwinia reaches Macs
Ambrosia has announced the release of a Mac port of Multiwinia, originally developed by Introversion for Windows. The game, a sequel to Darwinia, is a real-time strategy title in which players control armies of stick men within a Tron-like computer environment. Whereas Darwinia was focused on a single-player campaign however, Multiwinia concentrates on multiplayer modes supporting up to three human or AI opponents.
Over 40 maps are included, divided between six different game modes. The basic Domination mode has users capture as many points as possible; also present are Assault, Blitzkrieg, Rocket Riot, King of the Hill and Capture the Statue modes. The game requires a minimum of Mac OS X 10.4.11, running on a G5 or Intel Mac. The full version costs $19, but is matched by a free trial edition.
