CNET Editors' reviewIf the traditional variations of Tetris are too linear for you, try the more organic chaos of Amoebic. The game is set in a petri dish, where you must rotate a bacterial cluster so incoming cells will land on cells of the same color. When you line up three identical cells, they are destroyed. However, the task is not that easy. Cells fly in from all directions and stick to your cluster, making it expand. If your cluster grows to 50 cells, you lose. You have to move the cluster around to catch the cells where you want them. The arrow keys move the cluster around the culture, while the D and F keys rotate the cluster left and right. Bonus cells slow down incoming cells, destroy cells of a certain color, or blow up any nearby cells. Although the controls are a bit complicated, Amoebic adds a new challenge for jaded Tetris fans.
From Endboss Games:
Amoebic is addictive fun for everyone. Are you fast enough to clear the cells before the cluster gets too big? The rules are simple: Match up three of the same-colored cells to start a reaction. Complete a level by clearing the cluster. Sound easy? Once you've mastered Arcade mode, you can test your skills in Time Attack and Endurance modes.
