Inspired by classic arcade games such as Defender and Asteroids, the basic idea is to stop multiple waves of enemy bacteria from snatching away your last few remaining cells that are located in the center of the screen. However, there are also some bacteria who are intent on destroying you - so you must destroy them first. If you succeed in lasting 60 seconds then you will be rewarded with a further cell to protect on the next wave, and so on...

When played on a touchscreen, Bacteria Arcade Edition also features a two-player 'cocktail' mode - played like a retro cocktail table arcade game in which two players face each other and cooperate to save the cells and defeat the invading bacteria.

Warning: This is a strangely addictive retro classic-style arcade game for one to four players!

It has great music - be prepared to have it's tunes fixed inside your head.

This game starts off slowly, but by wave 4 the game is frantic, lots of chaotic action that keeps you on your toes.
