In-between grabbing the big blockbuster and high-profile indie games on handheld, it's always nice to have a bash at a few smaller arcadey releases.
Germinator takes the gameplay behind the Bust-a-Move bubble-popping series and puts a germy spin on it, giving you a number of diseases to get rid of through the time-honoured pursuit of matching stuff.
It's fun in small doses, but a lack of any real tactics or direction stalls the action, making this a quick salve for boredom rather than a cure.
By firing coloured germs into the fray and matching like-colours up you can make germs grow to such a size that they eventually pop, taking surrounding germs with them.
Germinator is rather sketchy in its execution, but offers fairly solid Bust-a-Move gameplay
