Customer Reviews


The game has a nice eerie feel with the graphics and sounds however the controls are causing me way too much trouble. You have a circle in the bottom left corner that you move right or left to navigate. This circle sometimes goes back to the middle even though my finger has not and my character stops in place resulting in my death which also causes me many problems while trying to not get bounced all over the place like a pinball by cells. It would be a lot easier if they provided simple right and left arrows (more in the bottom middle of the screen)to navigate. Not having a way to know if Mosquitos are coming is disheartening as well. The concept is a win but they failed on the playability. Hope this changes.


Very pleased to have come across this. One suggestion to developers though - you should state where your donations are going to. Malaria is deadly and sad and I've contributed to similar African pandemics before, but I don't know if my donations are going to those in need of relief from malaria or if it's going to the game developer.

Awsome Game
