Would you like to be in the 80's gaming mood? Bacteria is going to bring you back there. A classic vertical shooter with some of the ingredients of the retro-formula: old-fashioned graphics, simple pad-killer gameplay action, lot of action.
The basic idea is to face waves of enemy bacteria that are trying to infect a last few remaining cells placed in the middle of the stage. You're on board of a ship armed with laser guns that can neutralize and destroy those bacteria. Thus, chase after them, aim and finish them off before any of them take a cell out of screen. If they achieve their goal or you lose your lives by hitting against bacteria, the game is over.
There are three difficulty levels: arcade, novice and insane. Likewise, the game can be played single or in co-op in-device multiplayer. Take of care not to shoot your fellow though, since friendly fire is allowed. Graphics, even pretending being retro, should be somehow enhanced: environment is too dark and effects are poor. The ship is controlled by a screenpad button for moving left/right, boosting and shooting. That's it.
