USA WiiWare Update: Evasive Space

Today’s solo release for North American WiiWare is Evasive Space. A causal glance at one of the many screenshots in our gallery below might lead you to conclude that this is a shoot-em-up game. In fact the idea in this game is to avoid things instead, which is a novel idea. The game has been developed by High Voltage for newly formed Akinai Games (YUKES of America).

From what we have seen so far and heard in our exclusive interview we’re expecting this to be a solid purchase. Competing for the best times on the online leaderboards should be a whole heap of fun. Evasive Space costs 1000 Wii points, if in doubt wait for our review which should be ready in the next couple of days.

Congratulations go to reader PDTempest who won our Evasive Space competion with a quite frankly unbelievable example of death-avoidance that even Frogger would be proud of!

If evading things sounds like a drag and you want to shoot and destroy instead then you might want to check out Life Force on the NES. For just 500 Wii points with 2 player co-op this is a game worth investigating.
