    Despite how the game looks, it's actually quite demanding. You won't be able to port it to the DS.

    I've played it a little
    Seemed pretty easy to extract the files too.

    But I got bored of it. [​IMG]

    I seem to recall either emailing or posting to Introversion about the potential for a DS game. I don't know if I still have the reply but pretty certain it came down to the same reason as always: not enough resources. The DS is too underpowered for Darwinia, there are memory requirements to be considered apart from just the graphics.

    Someone should port Uplink to the DS instead. Hahaha.
