A unique 3D shooter with frustrating gameplay, Vaxine plays like a cross between Alpha Waves and Spectre. The object of the game is to survive each level by destroying all the enemy cells that appear before they bond together and destroy all of your base cells (which appear as half domes on the floor). The game ends if all of your bases are destroyed, or if one of your three ammo streams reaches zero. Your score is then displayed along with an option to, god forbid, start over.

Vaxine is played on attractive 3D VGA grid, which you can move around easily with the mouse. Enemy cells are difficult to destroy because it is very hard to gauge the distance when your ammo arcs toward the target-- even in the 3D perspective. Worse still, you will only destroy a cell if you hit it with a shot of the same color, and your ammo is very limited. This makes the game extremely frustrating and ultimately unrewarding. If you fancy yourself a joystick god who's beaten every action game ever made, give Vaxine a try. Otherwise, steer clear of this and play something more manageable, such as Alpha Waves
