An overlooked gem, Maxis implemented the intriguing "genetic engineering" AI in this game long before Tamagotchi and Creatures caught the public's imagination :) A defected scientist has turned harmless creatures into killing machines. As a fellow scientist, it's up to you to breed creatures that would fight to regain control of the island. Cool animations, and an excellent "experiment" mode. Pretty steep learning curve, although trial-and-error in free experiment mode should reveal what the commands do. Recommended.
