• Make the Impossible Possible
You can cure the organism by capturing enemy cells. To do this, draw a line between green antibody and red enemy cells. This will launch DNA tentacles which drain energy from enemy cell cores and eventually overtake them. Keep an eye on your energy supply and boost your attacks by cutting the tentacles. Capture all enemy cells to secure a zone. Cure all zones and the life form will survive…

Good but somewhat confusing at times
Maybe a few more tutorials without time pressure would help to understand the mechanics of the game. But I like it anyway. I'm giving 5 stars to support this game, but as it is right now, it's more of a 4 star game to me. The cells that take over other ones are my least favourite. It just feels so different from the core mechanic of channeling tentacles that the game becomes less interesting for me on those levels. If you could find some new ways to implement the core gameplay and make it more complex (without switching to different types of cells), that would be more interesting. Not sure how you could do this though, maybe some sort of bonus for pitting tentacles of certain colours against each other?
I played this game for hours on a flight from Newark to New Delhi. This game is simple, yet challenging. I'm really looking forward to additional level.
Update, Mar 28th, 2013: I picked this game back up with the recent addition of the level pack. Since the time Of my previous review, I have played numerous iPad games. I must say that this is definitely in my top 5, right next to Eufloria (a similar strategy game).
The concept is simple, yet challenging to master. Some levels are hard enough that it requires a lot of thinking and patience to beat them. Tentacle Wars has the elements that draw in serious strategy games, with the benefit of short, 3-5 minute sessions that casual gamers enjoy.
Cool game. Needs more
At first the game is great. It's challenging and addictive. But the update seems to have brought just more of the same. It's true that some things are different like absorbing cells, but that seems to be the only major change. To really be a game that has good staying power their needs to be more dynamic parts to the game. Put the cells in a different environment. Make the enemy cells look a lot different. Achievements to unlock...something like power ups, skins, different music, something! It just seems bland to having nothing to work towards except knocking off another level thats so similar to past levels. 4 Stars cause it really is a great game, and I feel like it has a lot of potential.
