About Evasive Space
Creatively integrating the Wii Remote’s infrared pointer, you’ll be guiding Konki on timed and collection based missions through 20 stages of varying mazes and obstacles in five different environments, spanning treacherous terrains including asteroid belts, planetary rings, astro-caves, and large space stations. Hazards surround your every move - enemy fire, asteroids, black holes, tight corridors - while ship upgrades tempt you at every turn. Fly solo to find and restore the missing stars to the sky, or compete with up to three of your friends in local multiplayer matches that will determine which pilot has the quickest and skilled navigation abilities…
