Flash Molecular Biology Games

Sometimes you need a little fun. If you are looking for a way to kill some time, but want to be able to justify it as 'research', here are some flash games you can find on the web for free.

Microbe Kombat
You move your mouse around to guide you microbial cells to proteins that can be eaten. Enemy cells inhabit the same space and compete for the limited food source. Cute graphics/Nice Music.

Microbe Arena
This is a simple round based game where you customize your character and let him fight. Basically you adjust a bunch of sliders and then hit the 'fight' button. Less of a game, and more of a toy.

Not really biology based. You are a little ship that flies around and shoots a gun. You have a small armada that goes with you.
