What is Human Evolution: Rise of Mankind?
Human Evolution: Rise of Mankind is a science-fiction hybrid idle game and clicker game. Players advance life across the galaxy by combining organisms. This process provides a humorous look at the evolution of man.
Players earn money while they are not playing. The accumulated money can be spent on organisms and upgrades. Human evolution offers free gaming, but like most mobile games there is a paid currency available.
Combining organisms and buying upgrades allows the player to advance to multiple planets and unlock different organisms.
How To Play
The Map screen allows the player to travel between unlocked planets. If a planet is not unlocked, it will display the amount of money needed to unlock.
There is also a space station which gives out missions. Players have a choice of three missions. Each mission has its own completion time and rewards.
Quests will give their rewards once the countdown timer runs out. The timer runs even if the app is closed. There is no real campaign mode. Human Evolution is a clicker game based on consistent progression.
The Planet screens are where the core game play takes place. The screen will slowly fill up with bubbles. When popped, the bubble drops a copy of the lowest level organism.
The player then drags two matching organisms together. They will then combine into a higher level organism. Two of these organisms can be combined into a better one. So on and so forth.
Each planet also has different environments. Once enough organisms are combined a new environment will be unlocked. The levels work on a tier system and will house the higher level combinations created by the lower tiers.
Buying upgrades will make the combination process more efficient. Upgrades can reduce cooldowns and produce better organisms.
The first few levels of the upgrades cost gold, the game‘s free currency. Higher levels of upgrades cost gems, the game’s paid currency. Gems can also be earned through playing and achievements.
Organisms can also be purchased with gold and gems. This is a great way to spend idle gold if we have not logged on in a while. Some of the additional planets cost a lot of gold. I find myself spending most of my gold on organisms until I can unlock additional planets.
The evolution chart branches off during higher levels. Each planet has its own evolution chart. Players can use the additional planets to explore the different branches of the evolution tree.
For example, after the player is able to create basic humans they then have the choice to make super-smart humanoid beings, or humans combined with mech parts. Both of these branches also split further in the game.
Human Evolution: Rise of Mankind Tips
I am not familiar with any Human Evolution cheats or codes, but I did pick up a few things during my time playing the game. Here are a few of my biggest tips for playing Human Evolution:
- After upgrading the minimum organism level, make sure to clean up the lower level organisms. There is no need to take up precious space with organisms we are no longer generating.
- Make sure to have a quest going at all times. Quests give awesome rewards. The best way to do this is to start quests before long periods of downtime, such as work or sleeping.
- If we can’t buy a new planet, we should spend our gold on buying organisms and upgrades. This will help speed up progression.
- Be mindful of organism storage space. If one of our environments is full we are losing out on combinations.
- Level up the planets! There is a bar at the top of each planet screen that can be used to level up. It can be easily overlooked.
- Go for achievements! Unlocked achievements can give gems which are useful for buying boosts and upgrades.
Human Evolution: Rise of Mankind Review
I am always on the hunt for the next best idle game. There are plenty of amazing idle games and apps available. Sadly, most of them suffer from the same problem. This game was a fun parody of the evolution of man.
The phone runs great on my Google Pixel 2. It does not seem to drain my battery faster than the typical game. My phone does not get hot while playing for extended periods of time.
The exponential progression of these games will eventually slow the game play down to the point where it is unplayable. This is nothing unique to a specific game, but a drawback of the genre (and many other mobile game genres).
When it comes to progression, I found Human Evolution to be better than most. I was able to play for a while before the game slowed down. The achievements give out enough gems to keep the ball rolling for a few weeks.
I love the combination aspect of these games. I have played a few others in the past. Half of the fun of the game is unlocking the different combinations. Many developers add pop culture references into their different combination tiers.
The characters in Human Evolution are basic, but still pretty cool. Many of the lower-level characters are basic animals and humans. I did enjoy unlocking the more advanced science-fiction characters.
If I could change one thing about this game, it is the ability to auto-generate higher level organisms. The organism level upgrade maxes out at a low level. I understand that this is a core mechanic meant to make the game difficult. However, I think this mechanic can be buffed a little. I eventually found myself not bothering with the auto-generation and only buying organisms with gold.
Overall, Human Evolution: Rise of Mankind is a fun game. I enjoyed exploring the game’s characters and upgrades. The game is basic enough where I did not feel the need to constantly play. I like idle games that do this. The whole point of an idle game is to not play it, right?
