In The Adventures of Darwin™, gamers take on the leadership role in a group of primitive, yet promising, primates. If they want to survive life in a hostile world, they must evolve! The game follows the evolution of Darwin the monkey and his companions as they grow from a small assembly of simple primates to a powerful, intelligent colony of human cavemen—all through learning about and interacting with the vast prehistoric world around them. Utilizing innovative real-time strategy elements, players can lead their tribe on adventures, teach them to hunt, collect raw materials to build with and use as tools and weapons, and encourage the use of increasingly civilized language. In The Adventures of Darwin, players will find out if they are capable of becoming a leader of evolution, or if they are doomed to a life of monkey business!

In some respects, The Adventures of Darwin effectively mirrors Pikmin’s unique style. But it comes up short as a PS2 strategy game
