ImpossibleGreat game, definitely one of my favorites. The gameplay is extremely varied and interesting. The graphics are simple but effective.

Gopherhit a wierd glitch once where the first blue door wouldn't open after I cleared the room, but came back and played until I had to make myself quit to go on to the next. I'll be playing it again, tho. Very cool.

logicalhippotutorials were well done. learning curve was really done well. sometimes battles went on a little too long. it was a little tedius to clean up viruses after most had been killed. background was a little ugly... ok, A LOT ugly. nice music.

LordCovenantVery, very, very good... It was fun playing... Even the "vector" graphics had their charm... the "tutorial" at the start was very good tood... My only complaint at this game is the fact that it runs in a window that takes up my whole desktop (and I couldn't see the whole of it because of my taskbar at the bottom)... It would be better if the game ran in full screen mode...

tonicThe graphics of this game are very simplistic, but still it managed to be very entertaining. I liked that there was different rooms and the whole game felt like I was moving through different rooms, which usually had some unique like properties. Somehow this reminded me a little bit of Space Taxi, which is one of my favourites. :)

mrfunFantastic game, not since pitfall and Adventure for the A2600 have you had so much fun spelunking with an extremely pixelated avatar. A delicate mix of relaxing exploring, pulse pounding battles and neat items and powerups to find. The soundtrack fits perfectly.

JolleThis game gives a feeling a bit similar to the first zelda game :) Nice gameplay, nice music, decent gfx. A wee bit annoying with the bouncing thingy when going into walls, and once when I got killed and had 2(?) lives, I completely died and the life counter showed -7, I think. Then when I retried, the door wouldn't open in the first room with red things you should eat. But closing down the game and restarting worked fine.

survivorI don't know what it is with those Python entries and their minimal vector graphics, but it doesn't keep this one from getting my 5 on Completeness :) As in many entries, it is frustrating to start over after losing, though.

sinsolentThis game was simple, but quite fun, and pretty innovative in terms of all of the different things there were to do in every room. The control scheme took some getting used to, but I really started to dig it after I got used to it. I found myself wishing for more rooms, though! The graphics reminded me of an 80s arcade game, which isn't a bad thing, though they were perhaps a touch too simple. But hey, 48 hours, right? A few minor polish issues came to mind, too, like the fact that the screen was too big for my desktop, and I couldn't find a way to fix this other than resizing my desktop.

summakyAt first this game doesn't look as what is. It's really great!!! Really, even in the first seems simple it got me "addicted". Only doors doesn't open when restarting again, but who needs to restart ;-)

TwinnedArakThis game is a lot of fun. I really liked the multitasking necessary for the different bad guys. At first I thought it was too easy... don't worry, I changed my mind quickly enough. The mouse control feels a little bit weird. I'm not saying it's bad, it just takes getting used to. It almost feels like the white blood cell is sticking to the walls. Like I said, it isn't a bad thing, but if you were trying to make the mouse control feel exactly like Windows cursor control you might want to tweak it a little bit.

JaciusAn interesting game, I liked the 'powerups' and the mix of different types of gameplay. (Space shooter, color matching, and more!). However, there was not a lot of "infection," that is to say that the viruses did not infect anything, they just appeared from the "infections"/generators.

Ufo ZWow, a game of epic proportions! Very fun and varied, although it doesn't have much to do with infection :) Needs a save/load game function because it's easy to keep playing for a while. Very fun.

ZaphosNot sure how it related to the theme (I mean ... aside from the text that claims the triangles are virii...), but it's a cool gameplay concept with a solid implementation, and it's good fun, and the sound effects are way cool (I dunno, there's something special about the 'eating' sound; it hits the spot) ... so ... good work! Integration of help and game is cool, a nice touch.

_SimonWThis game does not work for me. The problem is varying case is used between filenames on disk and filenames in the code. I started to fix it, but lost interest after 5 mins. This is quite a shame, as pygame automatically gives you seamless cross platformabilty.

ciw42From the sceeenshots I wasn't expecting much. But the game was actually quite good fun. The fact that it had a proper map and different levels was good to see. Not a game I'm likely to get a hankering to play particularly often, but fun all the same. Pretty intuitive control method and some nice ideas.
