Product Description

Run for your life through a series of increasingly devious hi-res neon mazes, chased by countless relentless security forces. Mixing the best parts of arcade, stealth, and block puzzle games, EVAC HD will challenge you to outsmart, outmaneuver, and seek revenge against the enemies trapping you and your friends.

Be the Best

Take EVAC, the smiling pink square, one step closer to freedom by gathering colored dots in order to open exits and move through levels. Collect dots, avoid being hit, and destroy your enemies with power-ups to increase your multiplier and your total score. Replay levels to beat your own goals and top the online leaderboards.

Be as efficient as possible by setting your own touchscreen control point based on comfort and convenience. Calibrate it on screen during gameplay if you need to make an adjustment.

Be Creative

Use stealth to avoid encounters and prepare traps for your enemies, or just rush as fast as you can right in front of their eyes. Figure out how to beat the system and destroy your captors in 32 action-packed levels. Steal from your dark adversary, SHADOWBOX, and leave his world and red square minions in ruins! Beware as he taunts and comments on your progress and fight on through!

Break Out and Take Revenge!

Get help from the yellow square, CRATOS, and his friends, the yellow blocks you encounter in the mazes. Receive his advice and push the blocks around you to crush your enemies and to press switch pads for puzzle solutions.

  • Hide in safehouses to evade the attacking red squares
  • Duck behind walls to avoid enemy sightlines
  • Find the ghost power-up to move past baddies and force field barriers
  • Collect shock power-ups to zap and stun foes that get close to you
  • Use the Aura power-up to radiate destruction and crush all incoming red squares

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Revamp of an Old Classic January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
Before I say anything else about "Evac", let me say don't dismiss this game based off the reviews for it. Looking at a lot of the reviews for "Evac", I have seen a surprising number of people criticize it, along with Hexage's other game "Radiant" (another attempt to reinvent a classic), for being a "rip-off" of an old game. I understand and see that this game does heavily get its influence from Pacman and directly get some of its gameplay from it, but Hexage does not simply copy the classic but rather breathes new life into it and titling it simply "Evac".

Story & Basis -
Unlike Pacman, "Evac" actually gives a storyline for why you are gobbling up colors (in this case), and does so through dialogue at the beginning of each of the 32 levels and even throughout the level. While the storyline is nothing to in-depth, I found the in-game dialogue to be annoying to an extent. You could be running away from an army of red squares and abruptly have dialogue come up because you triggered some in-game text. Luckily, "Evac" gives you an option to turn this off, and this can easily solve this particular problem. Also, you can click the bottom right of the screen to view dialogue that you may have missed at your own time and pace within the level. Nothing too spectacular, but I must say it adds a certain charm as you attempt to escape the villian: Shadowbox, who wants to drain you of your color and keep you within his realm.

Graphics -
Hexage's neon-based visual style that appears in every game of theirs makes another appearance here in the art style. The level design features structures with radiating neon-lights, and the "colors" that you pick up to complete the level feature neon colors also.

Namco has countless times tried to re-invent Pac-Man and put it back into mainstream gaming, failing horribly.
Hexage Ltd has succeeded where (many) others couldn't. Don't let the games clever description fool you, this is simply an HD remake of Pac-Man, with more features and a somewhat decent escape story.

The object of EVAC HD is to eat all the dots (colors) you can, while navigating through the maze and avoiding ghosts (other blocks) that try to capture (eat) you. If this sounds like a game you played ages ago, that's because it is; but re-skinned and re-imagined for this generation.

I absolutely love all the changes they made here. Adding little spaces for you to hide and avoid ghosts (I am not calling them "reds" like the game does) was pure genius, and the power ups add even more strategy to the classic dot gobbling.

Side Note:
There is a lot of false information floating around about EVAC HD's control scheme.
It greatly upsets me when people just randomly spew off made up facts about the product they review based on somebody else's summary. Trust me on this, there is nothing wrong with the controls and you CAN indeed move the joystick to suit your orientation.

The Good:

- Tight controls. Contrary to some other reviewers, I love the way controls are handled here. I feel they are very good and had no issues whatsoever on two phones and two tablets (INCLUDING the Kindle Fire).

- Classic Pac-Man gameplay brings back warm feelings of nostalgia.

- Ingenious power ups allow you to do everything from stunning to destroying your captors.

- Minor puzzle elements (moving blocks to open doors, blocking off ghosts, etc) add a bit of strategy to the action.

- Awesome graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent graphics, smooth controls, fun and easy to play! September 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
As many have said, this follows a very similar premise to the classic. Pac-Man. The controls are very simple and easy to use, and I like that it's not a joystick like other games. I move off joysticks and lose control, having a control point to touch around is very nice.

The 'calibration' (moving the control point) is supposed to be long-pressing the control point for 3 seconds, but for me it seemed more like 5-6 seconds.

The messages do pop-up quite frequently, so turning them off is a must (haven't done it yet, but noticed a review said you could). A better option would be text popping up along the top, not a box pausing the game every 5 seconds.

Great game, love it, love the new control point control scheme, far easier to use than virtual joysticks.

Game Play:

The game is very similar to the old Pacman game even to the point where you have a thumb joystick to move your action figure to run the maze and collect the dots. For me unfortunately the joystick is on the LH side of the game and I am right handed so the game is played with my most uncoordinated hand. There is a pause button on the top of the LH side of the screen.

The controls take time to get used to and it is difficult at best in an open room to move the character to where you want it to go. You will find that for precise movements you must tap the joystick on the side of the direction you want to move in and it will move in one space increments. It is difficult to try to move precisely while trying to clear the maze and have multiple enemies fluidly coming after you while you struggle to get one colored dot. You have slid your thumb off of the area of the control you want to use and you move in the wrong direction. On my Kindle Fire a calibration screen said it was going to pop up but it never did. I could never find the calibrations screen again.

There are dialogs that pop up on the screen while you are playing and the stop the game while you have to read the messages either from the yellow box or the leader of the characters chasing you. I find this to be distracting and not needed and you can turn them off in the options menu.

When you get to a certain point in some levels you are playing you will unlock the red squares that chase you. In some rooms there are yellow boxes that you can push in front of the doors so that they cannot enter the room to get you. In other levels you are immediately trapped and you can get stung by one or two of the squares before you can even move.
