Once again, Venter does something to the site and I get to play about a little. I love it, I really do. It makes me feel all squishy inside. Warm, and moist. And tight, like a tiger.
Um ... yeah. Words go here. Some will, soon.
Title: Geometry Wars DEvolved! Posted: March 02, 2006 (10:47 AM)
Talking about Geometry Wars Retro Evolved on the forums, goat asked if there was a downloadable PC version. There isn't, but I got to thinking that since the game is fairly simple, surely someone somewhere made a homebrew version?
Well, turns out they did. And, turns out I found it! AND, TURNS OUT I UPLOADED IT! Get it HERE, and see for yourself just what the fuss is about. It's not perfect, but it's a very good feel of what Geometry Wars is about, only with a bit less of the extreme difficulty. Plus, it can be played with keys.
The amount of articles I have read on various gaming blogs devoted to Geometry Wars really does make me proud. No plot, no FMV, no licenced music, EXTREMELY basic graphics, and several million enemies. We are talking serious retro, old school gameplay to DIE FOR. (Repeatedly.) And yet, more people seem to be talking about this game than anything else on XBox 360. The whole Live Arcade is apparently the console's killer app! This is GOOD news for those of us who actually enjoy PLAYING games as opposed to watching them or working through them.
I heartily endorse this event or product. And, I IMPLORE you to give it a shot. Just remember, good as this game is, the original is even better!

Usurper, there is a reason it won't work on your Mac. That reason is because Macs are evil.
(Actually, there is a Mac version available. You can find it on this page.)

Check out DUO at http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=5100
It looks surprisingly similar to Geometry Wars, though I haven't played it yet.
