We've had bird flu, mad cow disease and elephantitis, and now another seemingly cute creature is set to bring terror and panic to the planet - the Ameobax. This mutant germ has escaped from a scientific lab and is spreading its way across Earth in the form of a series of cuddly blobs with big eyes. Don't worry it's not real, apart from in this mobile game.

Ameobax plays in a very similar way to Tetris, as you must line up the blobs in a line of four in order to destroy them. I'm not sure this would work in the event of a real life biological epidemic, but it's certainly a fun way to spend a bus journey on your mobile phone. It's dead easy to pick up and play the game, especially with the inclusion of a fun tutorial. It didn't take me long to navigate the six levels and save the world but the addition of a tournament mode increases the longevity of the game.
