    Rarely do you see the portable version of a game eclipsing its console counterparts, but that is exactly what the case is here. Germinator “feels” better on Sony’s handheld and result is a much more enjoyable game overall.

    Germinator is pretty much a one trick pony, but that particular trick is fun and challenging, it is a low price and you will get some decent value. It is a game that is worth picking up as a nice accompaniment to your existing catalogue for when you fancy something a little less meaty.

    Blasting away pulsing nasties is fun and becomes enjoyably challenging in later stages, but the high price and the lack of Cross-Buy are symptoms we'd rather have avoided. [June 2013, p.77]

    Germinator is rather sketchy in its execution, but offers fairly solid Bust-a-Move gameplay.

The visuals are kinda ugly but it plays great. There is always a solution to getting 3 stars and isn't just random. Really requires more thinking that the average casual puzzler but you can always hack a one star to progress. The need to hire some a better artist than the Garbage Pail Kids reject art guy and this could be at the level of awesome. Expand

Heck, if it was sub £5.00, it'd be absolutely essential. I'll post some more impressions in the next day or so when I've spent more time with Germinator, but in the meantime, it's definitely worth a look if you have a puzzling itch that wants scratching.
