30th March Update:
We hope to have fixed issue whereby occasionally green and yellow power-ups sometimes took you to a dead end.

Grow your neuron as long as possible by using your mouse to click on protein targets within your circle of influence.

You can only click on protein targets within your circle of influence but you need to be quick as it decreases over time.

Connect with special pink, green, yellow and blue protein targets for a range of power ups to help you overcome rival neurons that compete with you for the available protein targets.

'Axon' uses real features of neuron development in the foetal brain. You can find out more by clicking on The Science link from the main menu of the game.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Enough to reach the current 12th spot overall with 134,066 anyway. HELLS YEAH. The enemy neuron thingies were certainly challenging in the thinner areas, and the powerups kept it interesting.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really, really great game. The ratings at the end were cool enough to make me try a few extra time. #2 daily score!

Great game. I love the info it gives. I think I would like to see it on an itouch, or even android (assuming the info stays in the game).

Rated 5 / 5 stars


Great gameplay, remains consistently fun throughout
Super addicting gameplay and relatively short game time make for near infinite replay value
Aesthetically pleasing and easy on the eyes
Educational (not really something I care about in my casual flash games, but w/e)


Game size is a bit wonky (but doesn't detract from the gameplay much)

Other comments:

Amazing flash game, one of the best I've played in a long time. Someone in another review negatively compared this to the popular game Winterbells, but I'd actually make a positive comparison; you've put a fresh spin on this type of game, and it's particularly refreshing. Could definitely see myself coming back in the future when bored and playing this. Easy 5/5.
