If Pocket Gamer was to start handing out awards for the game with the best premise, then Virus would most be on the shortlist. This isn't a game about battling aliens, driving race cars or matching coloured gems - no, this is far more serious than all that. Virus is about protecting the body from invading illnesses, building up the defences to stave off a bout of man-flu or things much worse.
But, while the game is brilliantly pitched and comes with the sort of swish intro screens often bereft from bite-size titles such as this, it's equally true that taking on those nasty beasties that roam around your body isn't quite as exciting as it might sound. In fact, Virus is a far simpler game than both its concept and the title's own build-up-blurb would suggest.
