  • Summary: You are Mister Mosquito, an uninvited guest in the Yamada family home in Japan. In order to store up enough food for the winter, you must drink as much of their precious blood as possible while they are in bed, talking on the phone, watching tv, or even a bath. The Yamadas know you are in the house and have plans to take you out. Deadly insecticides fill the air, and they have the ability to crush you like the bug you are. [Fresh Games] Expand

  1. The simplicity of it all combined with just a touch of humor helps make Mister Mosquito a title well worth taking for a spin or three.
  2. One of the most creative and original games to come out in recent months, most notably because it does not rely on any single preset established genre and yet it is still a very appealing title.
  3. The game's structure is surprisingly rigid. [Summer 2002]
  4. Playing through Mister Mosquito for the first time is a unique and memorable experience, well worth a weekend rental if not a full-price purchase.
  5. A thoroughly original title that brings to a new audience, through parody, a touch of what makes Japanese culture so appealing to so many Westerners.
  6. Whilst it doesn’t offer an epic adventure the gameplay is solid enough to offer gamers a good gaming experience for a few hours.
  7. Even the parodic nature that was attempted here falls flat after a couple plays, leaving you with a husk of a game that could have been great.

    This game is unbelievably neat and creative. Very fun, with a lot of charm. Not overly long, but worth more than it costs. Perfect for collectors, gamers who like a quirky atmosphere, or people tired of the same old garbage. Expand

    This game is original and fun... for five minutes. Then it's grating, obnoxious, and not worth the plastic the disc's made of.
