“ Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem combines classic shooter gameplay with a surreal take on evolution,” says Peter Dassenko, Producer at Hudson Entertainment. “It’s all about the survival of the fittest in this downloadable title.”
In Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem, players start as primates and battle lizardmen across the epochs, from primeval to medieval times and beyond.
