This is a game about the beginning of life and its development to date. You are given options as to whether life forms may evolve or not. Factors such as temperature, competition, natural disasters and environment have to be taken into account. There are two levels, an easy one which ignores cross-relationships like plants evolving before plant-eaters, and a difficult one where all the factors must be right for a life form to evolve and survive. It's an interesting and geologically accurate game and enjoyable to play. The graphics are very simple, mostly text. Rated overall at 70 percent.
