    Simple Rules - Deep Gameplay Cute Visuals - Serious Strategy Easy to learn - Challenging to master

    Containment is a small, minimalist strategy/simulation game where you try to maintain the growth of bacteria. The core gameplay is easy to pick up but very challenging to master. The game can be completed in one sitting, but has leaderboards and challenging goals to accomplish that might take longer!

    Core Gameplay
    Containment is turn-based; the bacteria proliferate, you fight back, and the cycle continues. There are a number of rules that give depth to the strategy involved in achieving three stars on each level:
    - You have a limited number of doses
    - Intentionally ending your turn early and letting the bacteria grow lets you research stronger antibiotics
    - All bacteria lose one health per turn
    - Any bacteria without neighbors die the next turn
    - Every isolated bacteria gains you bonus points
    - Each extra dose at the end of the game earns you bonus points

    Aesthetic
    The game features a mix of cute and sleek design with a visually pleasing color palette and satisfying interactions in every corner. The music is soothing and relaxing to listen to while you battle the unending bacterial proliferation.

You have to kill off all the bacteria within a limited number of turns. And it's relatively easy to pass the levels. It has a few really interesting dynamics that make it very, very complex. If you don't clean up all the bacteria in a turn, then they will grow exponentially and unpredictably. Also, you get a higher score if you let the bacteria grow a little before cleaning them up. So, you have to balance timing of getting rid of all the bacteria with letting them grow too much so that it's impossible to clean up. So, it's very easy to get a lot score, and very very hard to get a high score.

    It's a great game!
