Germ Warfare is a top-down survival game for the iPhone and iPod touch. You take on the role of a solitary white blood cell in a fight for survival against the germ hordes. You must defend yourself, and protect your host body at all costs against the microbe invasion.
Don't judge it based on just the screenshots! Here are what some early reviewers at toucharcade.com are saying:
"don't let the screenshot fool ya. This is a very in depth game with plenty of options and power ups and even in-game achievements. Game-play is smooth and controls are excellent due to the calibration tool." - jasonsmith
"Based on the screenshots... I wasn't at all expecting how enjoyable and polished this game is. The gameplay is similar to the very popular falsh game Amorphous+. Don't let the cell-shaded, hand-drawn appearance fool you. this game is very professional. And very enjoyable." - Igoo
