When Yuke's Company of America releases screenshots, they release a hell of a lot of screenshots. They've unleashed so many screens for their upcoming top-down space adventure game Evasive Space for WiiWare that we've had to split them into two different galleries, one containing shots from Act 1 of the game, and another containing shots from Act 2. Enough screenshots that you could probably just print them out and play through both levels, flipbook style. Either they are extremely proud of High Voltage Software's work on the title, or someone in the screenshot department has an itchy capture finger. Check out Act 1 before the jump, and Act 2 comes tumbling after.
