i hate people like "icecool777" who are probably too poor to afford flash and they complain when they get bored. nice game but the upgrades are too small it seemed to take forever to get even a tiny bit bigger maybe start with about 1000 points to get you started???
Its a fun game from what I played, reminds me of a missile defense game, defending a grounded target, except your not shooting anything. Yet so very different.
I like the idea, your a parasitic organism, feeding off of the hosts blood cells, before they reach a certain point, what point would that be?
The music fit very well, as if the music describes a parasite, and what its doing the host's body, as if the host will eventually eat so many blood cells to the point of the host getting sick from lack of immunities and eventually dying out. and also the music is fitting, a good theme to be deep inside a body causing havoc. It reminds me of that game here on NG as well, pandemic, your a virus, trying to get the whole world sick through smart tactics, trying to get every single country infected, before some countries get smart, and either block off their water sources, boats or airplanes coming from the infected countries. Get any ideas from that game by any chance? I'm in no way saying that you stole an idea, just curious.
I liked the upgrade system, I'm sure it proves very useful later on, keeps the game interesting, a shame without it.
Good controls and graphics as well, the controls were smooth and easy to get used to, and the graphics were of high quality, can't have a decent defense type game without this.
A few suggestions, make the background look like the innards of a body, instead of black nothingness, maybe some skin cells, a few veins, entrails, maybe an organ or two, to look like your drifting inside of an actual body, and on cell lanes and tubes below your current position, maybe show some traffic of red and white blood cells, zipping throughout the trails and cell highways of the body. And instead of exploding, actually show the parasite consume the blood cell, but in a quick process enough to keep up with the pace of this game. One more suggestion, make the parasite you control look nasty and grotesque, to be truly name worth of a parasite!
The game is good the way it is, just a few minor suggestions, yeah sorry I get in a rant.
Overall enjoyable, and for sure I'll play again and acquire many upgrades.

Wow, I love it when i get long reviews! Thanks.
Yeah at first when this game was in the concept stage i was planning on making the parasite a blue "UFO" which slammed itsself into INcomming missles protecting a base but i decided to go with this playstyle.
Reaching a point where it triggers anti bodies to come and kill the parasite i would asume :)
AH yes. Music Music Music. I belive music can be almost 50% of the game (i spent almost a week looking for music) I always try to put the best music in my
games to create a perfect theme that i wanted to create. also yeah, pandemic was part of the inspiration. i loved that game.
Yeah it would be quite boring, i always try to add some sort of upgrade system to make my games more enjoyable, (it would be pretty dull with out it XD)
Wow, thanks I did the graphics my self if you were curious.
Thats what i was thinking about doing, i tried doing a red or a pinkish feel but i just couldent get a good athmosphere and color scheeme going so i went with black/blue/light blue Hehe yeah i was thinking of making the parasite blackish greenish and be able to grow limbs and such on it but i decided to make it a very small parasite.
Thank you so very much, i love long reviews i hope you read this response.
It's a pretty addicting game but it's too easy... perhaps add some white blood cells in the sequel that attack the parasite?
Good idea, Im acctually thinking of making a sequiel with man diffrent enemies and more weapons to upgrade to.
This is a very well done game, but like every one else has said, it has its issues. The only issue I had a major deal with wasn't even the game, it was keeping my damn mouse in the screen. It could use something to spice it up and make it a little less repetitive, perhaps upgrades that are more effective, and maybe even a bonus level or something of the like. Just something to keep it fresh the whole time. Other than that, though, it was a well done game. I also think you should put a counter on how many cells made it to the bottom, and out of how many it takes to lose.
Good work though!
very fun game
it kinda gets boring.
but is challenging
