Report: Few facts about the viriax infection are known save for the number of people infected, the lack of any known antiviral cure and the disease's lethality. Research has created the N.A.S., the Nanobot Assembly Station. This is a small chip implanted near the brain. It may be humanity's last hope.
It may be humanity's last hope but, as far as you are concerned, their situation is hopeless. For you are the viriax. And viruses have been on this world long before any other. Humanity's end is nigh.
In Viriax, you are the virus. You are trying to reach the core of whatever organ you are infecting to destroy it. You can move up, down, left or right but can only attack moving down. Every time you move up without bouncing off a cell, you use energy. If you are hit, you also lose energy. If you run out of energy, you lose a life. There are red globules you can collect to reserve your energy but there are only so many so be conservative in your energy use. Some cells, when attacked, with release items. Some items are helpful but others can hinder.
