Nothing says “Holiday Season” like a communicable disease. Behind the fun brought by yule logs, cheerful carolers and pine-scented prefab trees lurks a stew-pot full of microbiotic ne'er-do-wells. Rather than wait until a cute nephew sneezes into your eggnog, Phage Wars asks you to take the initiative in this winter wonderland of biological warfare.
You assume the role of an ambitious virus. Your genetic payload slowly builds within any given infected cell, waiting for your signal to spread out and propagate across the playfield. Unfortunately, your turf is also home to rival pathogens which seek to monopolize the rich genetic machinery at hand. Do you wait to build an overwhelming force within a select few strongholds, or do you encourage several small colonies to gang up on larger cells? Whatever strategy you choose, your ultimate goal is to thoroughly crush any interloping biotics.
