WHATÕS GERMS

Germs is a game that combines quick thinking with even quicker reflexes
as players manipulate scads of colorful, killer pathogens in order to
neutralize a biologial threat and save humanity.

The gameplay is quite simple, relying at its core on the "pick pieces
up and place them on the gameboard" model used in several games such as
MacPipes.
In Germs, the player picks up germ sprites from a "culture dish" and
arranges them on the gameboard in patterns of the same color to make
them disappear.

Germs' main features are:

¥ Gorgeous artwork in thousands of colors
¥ Six different animated germs-some cute, some nasty, all dangerous!
¥ 35 different levels of pulse-pounding puzzle action
¥ Beginner and Expert skill levels-choose what's right for you
¥ A fully-interactive tutorial to teach you the ropes

¥ Multi-channel stereo sound effects
¥ Online high scores
