Dr. Blob's Organism is a unique shooter game that combines the lightning-quick gameplay of games like Tempest with the artificial life algorithm of John Conway's Life.

In the game, the player must destroy pesky giant one-celled organisms as they try to escape from a spinning petri dish.

Each level introduces powerups (freeze, lightning, multiguns, etc.) and special abilities (force field, regeneration, frenzy, etc.) to keep the game challenging, surprising and exciting right to the mind-mangling last level, Spore Storm!
