[edit] Background

In this game you must destroy viruses by matching up the colours (yellow, red, blue) with opposing, bi-polar pills. With each stage you complete, more viruses fill the bottle, and with it the difficultly increases until you get a game-over. With gameplay similar to Tetris, it's a perfect - and addicting - game for puzzle fans.

[edit] Controls

Down button - Make blocks go faster
A or B button - Spin blocks around
Start - Pauses game

[edit] Gameplay

Similar to tetris, you will destroy viruses by matching up pills such as red, yellow and blue to the color virus. Once you clear the level of viruses you get to go onto a harder stage.

You can select how hard your stage is, and other things like how many viruses there are on the stage and the speed.
