Virus Wars iPhone App Review

iPhoneGlance Rating [rating=4]

Virus Wars developed by dash and dot  is highly addictive game. At first it appeared it was one of those games that issue you with a simple strategy, one that would have the user fight against the baddies (worms, Trojans and viruses). It’s more like a digital tic-tac-toe. The app is simple and clean.

“Each player can make 3 steps per 1 turn from his corner. Next step can be done in the cell, which is in contact with previous cell occupied by player’s cross (virus), or through a chain of enemy’s killed viruses. The main goal is to kill all enemy’s viruses or to bring to the situation when your enemy cannot make a move.The game has an intelligence-testing edge.”

Make your way to the centre of the grid and the war begins.

Virus Wars is a board game that imitates evolution of several hostile colonies of viruses and your task is to prevent that evolution. I liked the way you could play with up to four real players and the AI opponent is a nice touch. A clear tutorial, which allows to practice at first is available (and you will need this to start off with) and the game has a natural feel about it. I liked the colours and the graphics feel too.

It is one of those games where you can sit on a long train or coach journey and get stuck into and then suddenly find you have reached your destination. Virus Wars is a worthy little app that will keep your wits about you and one to defeat the colonies, if you can.
