Viral survival

Teyon's maintaining its formidable DSiWare output ratio with Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival out in North America this week.

The 200 Point download asks you to form the longest DNA chain you can while dodging harmful viruses in Normal mode, or offers a Baby mode where you simply cart the DNA pieces to safety. WiiWare veterans may note the similarities to Viral Survival.

It's out this Thursday in North America for 200 Points, and follows in Europe on 5th July.

Teyon, a video games developer and digital publisher, announced today that they have partnered with FUN UNIT, a Japanese developer of casual games, to release the action-packed puzzler, Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival. The game will be published on June 28th in North America and a week later, on July 5th, in Europe.

The game features two game-play modes. In the Normal mode your goal is to make the longest DNA chain while in the Baby mode you are a DNA guardian sneaking between enemies to transport DNA pieces to safety.

· 2 exciting modes of game-play: Normal and Baby

There's no space on my 3DS, so I can't buy new DSiWare without deleting old stuff, so all DSiWare from this point is an instant pass from me. D:

What BenAV and RainbowDash said...

I want more 3DSWare for the fact that DSiWare destroys your system memory...



Flowerlark said:

Um, you can back up your DSiWare to the SD card you know. You can't launch it if its not on your system memory, but you won't lose it or your save data that way and can always put it back on the system at any time.



Chris720 said:

Yeah, but that's just annoying having to copy it over, delete it, copy over the game you want to play... I just want to play it, not faf around copying and deleting for 10 minutes.

@fchinaski The concept of "Flow for dummies" doesn't even make sense, as it's impossible for a game to be more dumbed down than Flow already is.

How are they getting away with this? It looks identical to Viral survival. If I didn't know better, I would assume that it was a port of that game with few differences in game modes and some new power-ups.
