The end of the world as we know it

Genre: Action, Puzzle
When life on Earth comes to an end we hope it happens quickly, and not under a flood of sickly, suffocating slime. That's the unappealing scenario predicted by Panic!, a PS Mobile release from Thumbs Up Games.
In Panic, you have to avoid this messy end by saving innocent bystanders from the relentless onslaught of the alien ooze.
Holding your PS Vita (or other PS Mobile-compatible device) vertically, you have to divert the path of the slime by collapsing buildings, blocking off potential routes, and channelling the green gunk away from vulnerable humans.
Panic offers up a decent enough setting, but its inconsistent touch screen interface and jerky visuals prevent it from living up to its promise
