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.
Wow, that was really neat and educational. I had a lot of fun playing it. I like how you dont have to be dead on your target to work.
I appreciate how you've made an educational game that is supported by its game content. You're not rubbing the science in our faces, but it's there if we want to see it.
And what a game! There's a good balance of speed and strategy. If you blaze in, clicking on neurons randomly, you'll miss powerups that make the game easier or even find yourself in a dead end. If you take too long to make a decision, your circle of influence has already shrunk past your desired neuron and screwed you over. Your powerups stack as well, so you have to decide whether having a large circle of influence is more important than keeping rival neurons from growing.
Overall, this is an impressive game that I'm going to show to my science teacher.
This is pretty cool. I'm into neuroscience and academia, so I approve of all the fun information and think that this is an interesting way to get people introduced. Very innovative and fun gameplay. Good, exciting music.
There is no game. Trust me. DO NOT PLAY!
