flgrNice music and great looking graphics. I like the highlights on the 3D spheres. The downside is that it feels repetive quickly and that's it's not obvious how you loose until have lost at least one time. It would have been nice if you included some better graphic and sound feedback when clearing a construction. I don't like that you have to start over at zero if you fail once.

zogglesVery nice game. Difficult to see which colours are which as they vary slightly from the model to the balls on the grid. Top score so far, 40885 (lvl 19) will try harder though. - Z

wobblerI'm very impressed with the quality of this game. It's the only one of the entries I actually play for 'fun'; although the time limits are fairly tough! The only minor quibble is that sometimes the colours used for each compound look a little too similar. I assume all the models are acyclic -- maybe rings in the sequel? :)

tsmasterIt seemed like some of the objects on the 3d display didn't quite match the colors in the 2d display, which may have been intentional, but I found confusing. Nice music!

Ufo ZVery impressive game, and the idea is cool too, and the graphics are pretty. There are just a few annoyances with the interface: Moving the little balls around messes up my current configuration if I drag them over already placed balls... it would've been better to drag them over the playing field. When placing connections, it's usually between only two atoms... in this case it would've been nice if the program placed it in the appropriate direction for me. Also, some indicator of my time left would've been nice, and having to start over after level 14 was very frustrating :) :) Overall, I really liked the game idea, even if it's a very loose interpretation of "infection".

dumpleNice background music. It might be nice if left- and right-clicking cycled the "bonds" in different directions. And I had some trouble telling the different shades of blue and green apart. The world map with scary growing circle is a great touch.

adriczeroi don't easily give best scores, but you're game is the greatest I've seen so far. And it works on my machine, which many entries don't. The biggest points for me are the game is unique and fun. It seems polished, other than, it seemed a bit hard to see exactly how much time you had left to find the correct vaccines. Getting past level 5 was also hard for me. If you update the game post-competition, be sure to add difficulty settings.

TwinnedArakThe graphics and sound were so good, I had to go back to some of the other entries and knock them down from 5 to 4. Holy crap this game looks nice. I think the controls should be changed a little. For instance, when moving a component around, it pushes the other components in ways that don't really seem intuitive. Maybe when you pick a component up it should not interact with the other pieces until you put it back down. I wasn't really sure what made a "match" and what didn't.

EndurionNice, looks extremely simple for the first few, but gets hairy later on. One problem, sometimes the random molecules/viruses spheres intersect which leads to false previews.

wisebedeA very proffesionally produced puzzle game. Quite addictive early on but once there were around 8 compounds, I found it difficult to match the matts colours on the board with the rotating shiny model colours. No sound but nice music. Although the idea was about matching chemicals, anything about infection after that was missing. A solid entry.

logicalhipponice little game. the game seemed a bit boring and easy at first, but after sticking with it a while the opposite proved to be true. very challenging and the concept is pretty cool on the higher levels. REALLY slick graphics. My only two gameplay issues are that when you drag but don't release you can pretty much ruin what you have done so far. on the later levels I would sort of manically drag the mouse around looking for a place to drop the ball and it totally ruined all the work I had done previously. The other issue is that when the balls overlap it is sometimes too hard to see which rod is going to which ball. nice music. didn't have much to do with the infection theme and extra features were minimal, although you had a nice presentation. great, simple concept.

JaciusPretty good, graphically quite polished. The controls were a bit hard to use, particularly rotating the bonds. While the 'story' is about fighting pathogens, the game does not give a feeling of an infection occuring. That is, you are merely solving isolated puzzles, which do not seem related to the other outbreaks around the world. Perhaps if the hex vaccines grew or mutated each round (for example, you would start with 3 orbs, then next round those three would be there, but with 2 extra orbs), there would be a better feeling of infection.

EricDBExcellent game. It had two problems: the colors were often too close together to easily distinguish, and you could have extra links between atoms that didn't exist in the target molecule, and still win the level. Other than that, outstanding.
