    Once you start, it is almost impossible to get away from this dynamic cell conquering. Inspired by classic board games like Go, Pathogen builds a new experience by adding modern elements like chain reactions or moving arenas. Brilliant.

    A novel abstract strategy game that checks all the boxes for a fantastic digital experience and is charming enough, despite occasional accessibility issues, to win over abstract cynics like me.

    Pathogen's simple visuals betray its surprisingly intricate mechanics, which form the basis for exciting - and frequently exhausting - cerebral battles.
