Learn about evolution and lizard men with Shootanto

Ask any true blooded bible thumper and they'll tell you that evolution is a crock. Our great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great (etc.) grandparents were two naked people living in a garden of bliss without fear or hate. And they couldn't eat apples. 

Ask the developers of the WiiWare game Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem and they'll tell you that evolution is real, but Darwin got it all wrong. See, in their game they nail how evolution actually occurred. A monkey had to shoot lizard men in order to survive and be the more dominant species, and every time he shot enough lizard men he would advance a "level" in evolutionary terms, and in that way would advance through time until he is a human shooting lizard men.

The sad thing is that both of those concepts sound equally ridiculous if you take them literally, yet one is a downloadable WiiWare game coming NA side this Fall thanks to Hudson, and the other is a biblical story that many people interpret as literal fact. I'm getting way off track here since blind religious fervor makes me grumpy. The point is there's a fun looking, B-grade shooter coming from Japan to North American WiiWare this Fall that involves monkeys shooting lizards and then evolving. If this is how they rework evolution, you have to wonder what they did for the sequel, which takes place during WWII.
