Bacteria Arcade Edition Launches for Ouya


Bacteria™ Arcade Edition from SinisterSoft is now available for the Ouya video game system.  Bacteria™ was created and programmed by Anthony Ball, a veteran games creator from the late 80’s/early 90’s.  It is Anthony’s first game in over twenty years.

“Conversion to Ouya was particularly easy because I used a cross-platform development system called Gideros – because of this there was virtually no code changes to the game.” says Anthony.

Warning: This is a strangely addictive game retro classic-style arcade game!

It has freaky style classical music - be prepared to have its tune fixed inside your head.

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

Inspired by multiple classic arcade games, the basic idea is to stop multiple waves of enemy bacteria from snatching 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...

Four player simultaneous action: Bacteria™ Arcade Edition also features multi-player simultaneous gameplay in which up to four players cooperate to save the cells and defeat the invading bacteria.

The game has a $2.99 IAP for unlimited plays – until then it’s one game per day unless you pay!

Bacteria™ Arcade Edition is also available for Android, Kindle, Nook, iPhone, iPod and iPad via various stores.
