Evasive Space Cleared for February Lift-Off

Posted by Damien McFerran

We’ve had our beady eyes on High Voltage’s Evasive Space for a while now, and on more than one occasion we would find ourselves pondering that vital question: when is this excellent-looking WiiWare title going to be made available for public consumption?

Well, we can finally put these thoughts to rest because one of the most promising titles we've seen in a long time just became a little less 'evasive' (hoho! Ahem).

Publisher Akinai Games (Yuke's in disguise) has put us out of our misery by announcing that the game is due to hit the North American WiiWare store on 16th February, so mark those calendars, guys.

In the meantime, check out our exclusive interview with the developer. It’s a jolly fine read.

Maybe they'll give us what us Europeans have wanted to at least sample for ages, a HVS Game. We can hope.

I dunno it looks great graphics and color wise, but it jsut doesnt seem like my cup of tea just yet. it's gonna have to pull an 8 or higher to get my vote.

I think this looks really good. However, I will wait for a review to see how it plays.

After watching the vid on the Evasive Space game page, I realize that this game plays a lot like Shred Nebula, a crappy shooter on XBLA. I mean sure, the levels seem better, and you don't have enemies coming at you from every which way dispite the fact that you can only shoot in one direction (actually, I don't think you can shoot at all in ES), but still, this game will probably be crap as well.

I hope this does well. I'm not hugely excited about it, but some good reviews could definitely change my mind.

Since this is almost released, we should expect another announcement from HVS about their next WW game that is NOT Animales. That was announced first and what do we see since? Blackjack, Gyrostarr, Hot Rod and Evasive. Still no Animales.

Hmm...I'm not so excited about this game because the gameplay does look repetetive...move around, dodge the walls, and repeat. :

Another High Voltage game, another 7?

If Corbie ends up reviewing it then I would put money on this getting 7/10 :P

I hope this is good, but until a European release is confirmed, I simply don't care.

Eh, this`ll be an average title on WiiWare I just know it but its ok because we`re all use to it.
HVS should really get Animales out already, since I`m really looking forward to that title.

I don't really have much hope for this one. Control scheme looks severely iffy.

Darn. I was REALLY hoping it would come this month! This is one of my most anticipated WiiWare titles for Q1. Oh well, on the bright side, this means that Snowboard Riot's release is that much more likely for this coming Monday!!

@KS8: I doubt it - don't forget about Same Game, by the same developer (Hudson), although they're a funny bunch so you could end up with either.

Looking forward to this one; I hope High Voltage nailed the controls; they truly are the make-or-break factor of this game.

@Ricardo91: Well, we'll have to see if Corbie is reviewing it or not before claiming it'll get a seven, although yes, I agree with you. As Jackolantern said though, if HVS got the controls right, then this would be awesome.

I am definitely getting this, even if it gets the 7/10 that the others didn't deserve.
