Capture as many viruses as possible before they escape from the microscope.

Capture viruses by dragging the correct virus to the bowl (Petri dish) on the left. The game ends when he thermometer completely fills with red.

Not to bad.

It honestly wasn't the easiest game to play with a laptop mouse. Kind of simple and easy, but at the same time doesn't last very long. I suggest maybe adding levels and after you last so long on a level that you can pass it. Then maybe upgrades and items that you can buy in between levels. Overall pretty good.


A mindless click-and-drag

This submission joins the ranks of the many other click-and-drag, timer-based games, as you pit your eyes and your quickly-fatigued hand against a muddled screen full of colorful shapes and lines, trying to drag-and-drop as quickly as possible to prevent a timer from accumulating.

The general idea is to quickly scan a series of spaces on the left side of the screen, each of which require a specific color, shape, size, or all of the above, to be dragged and dropped therein. Then, you quickly move your eyes to the right side of the screen, where a massive pile of oddly shaped and colored "viruses" drift around atop eachother, frustrating your attempts to efficiently click on the correct one and drag it to its respective space on the left, for which you are awarded ponts. The spaces on the left change with each deposition of a virus.

As time passes and the screen rapidly begins to accumulate an impossible number of viruses, a thermometer, representing your timer, quickly fills with red. Unless you're really proficient at games like this, you can lose quickly. The submission is nothing unique or special, unless you're a huge fan of the huge number of the other timer-based mouse-dragging games found around the internet, in which case it may be worth a quick look.
