Hey, give it a chance! This game doesn't involve blowing up buildings or zombie massacres, it is ION's step into the realm of "serious games" for education. Imagine being stuck in class, listening to the dull rantings of a professor. Now imagine being able to learn in a more interactive and fun way, at your own pace, and this is where ION and "serious games" hybridize to create fun, educational, interactive experiences.

A patient has just been admitted in the E.R. with symptoms of Septicemia (sepsis). Septicemia is the result of bacteria invading the blood (bacteremia). Presently there are 3 types of bacteria threatening the patient's survival. If you don't destroy them all they will eventually cause septic shock and multiple organ failure by lowering the patient's blood pressure. It is up to you to assume the role of one of the body's white blood cells, a macrophage. You must defend the blood components by phagocytizing (engulfing) all of these invaders!

it's awesome to see flash used for professional, or at least educational uses...only problem i had was sometimes when i spawned, some of the things i didn't want to touch were already on top of me so i lost points immediatley...either that or i jittered the mouse too much...anyways great job, keep it up!...

Good job.

Yes it was not the average game. Any game that involved gaining points from learning is definetly different.

Great job with this anway it was nice how you intergrated the gameplay(which was somewhat lame) with the quiz questions (which were decent). Well Great job with this anyway (I realize the purpose of this flash is mainly for education)

A great idea! Reminds me somewhat of the game 'Virus' which is an old favourite of mine. My only criticism is that the first few levels of fighting the infection are rather slow and short. Perhaps adapting to the approach of a Space Invaders type game where instead of flying though space shooting aliens you're moving through an artery wiping out infection...just a thought for a possible v2. Anyway 4/5 from me.

Protection Points Granted!!!!!

This is really well done! Totally going into my favorites list, and I'm not even a fan of the medical sorts of learning. I mean this is awesome! I totally gave it a 5.

Love it!!

As someone who is a dork and loves medical games, I love this one!! The graphics are awesome and it's fun. It's going on my favorites list. Make more medical games like a surgery game.
