Description: NKCell – Natural killer cell – is a cell that can react against and destroy another cell without prior sensitization to it. They are part of our first line of defence against cancer cells and virus-infected cells. An NK cell attaches to a target cell, releases chemicals that breach its cell wall, and causes it to lyse (break up). You are one of a genetically modified NKCell that can destroy viruses and bacteria. In the game, you will be standing in a blood vein and slash incoming diseases/infected cells to keep the infection rate low and help the host to survive.

Review: While ‘NKCell’ describes itself as a science-based rhythm game, it is more an action game than anything else. In short, you are shrunk down to microscopic size and you need to fight a virus in the blood veins by chopping things with your swords (think fruit ninja only blood ninja) When it comes to the gameplay it is all a bit pointless. It is most certainly not in time with the music and it feels just a tad too manic to be fun. I don’t mind the graphics I suppose, even if there isn’t a lot to see, but for me, the gameplay just wasn’t interesting enough to make me want to recommend it. Full price is £5.19 and I definitely wouldn’t pay that, I personally got this in a sale for just £3.63 and I was left feeling dissatisfied.
