Biofilm – Replicate and kill

Biofilm is not a new game but it’s still a very creative idea. The entire game takes place in a petri dish where you are in control of a colony of bacteria. There are nutrious areas where your little friends can grow and replicate, and there are evil cancer cells with whom you compete over nutrients. So you try to grow as much “soldier”-cells as possible to outnumber the enemy. Naturally there are different types of cells like glowing light cells, supporting cells, freezing cells and bomber cells. The gameplay is quite similar to old versions of command and conquer or warcraft so you will quickly feel comfortable.

This game is a lot of fun especially if you love simulation games (which are rare anyway) and the graphics are very cute. The price tag is $18 or €15 which is not so cheap but ok. (That’s the price of a 3D-Movie ticket) .

The only problem I had, was that my MacBook touch pad did not work properly with this game. Only half of my right-clicks were actually accepted so it was a bit fuzzy to control my germs. Yet I think this is not an issue with a mouse and there are keyboard controls, too.

Maybe you just download it and try it yourself 🙂
