    Intake is a spectacularly minimal game that contains a staggering amount of complexity with just a handful of straightforward concepts.

    What a great little mouse based reflex game that takes us back to the earlier days of browser based gaming with mechanics reminiscent of gemsWhat a great little mouse based reflex game that takes us back to the earlier days of browser based gaming with mechanics reminiscent of gems such as 'Curve Ball', 'Helicopter', and 'Snowball Fight'. 'Intake' is a fast paced, highly addictive, musically-driven score attack that tests your reflexes as you struggle to save a body from certain death as pills fall from the throat of it's seemingly unhappy owner. I'm not really sure why this person is trying to end their life, perhaps they recently lost their job, or maybe they're going through a nasty divorce, or maybe'Starbucks' was just out of their favorite blend of coffee; nevertheless, it's up to us to save them.

    The gameplay is extremely simple, which goes for most great games of this genre. Snap your mouse back and forth and destroy the falling pills with the coordinating colors before enough fall past you, and you die. The more pills you destroy in a row, the bigger the bonus, and the more rounds you get through, the more intense the gameplay becomes as the game throws combinations of "attacks" at you. 'Intake' takes the things that made 'Tetris' memorable and builds upon them, so you know it's good. And combining these characteristics along with the fast-paced soundtrack and upgrade system makes this game well worth the price.
