Sporos is a simple puzzle game where you need to infect some cells with the sporos you get for each level. The cells are placed on a board (more like plane, since there is a neon theme) and form various shapes. It is up to the player to position the sporos in order to infect everything. The game is quite simple, has hundreds of levels to play, but this also makes it very repetitive and may lose the player’s interest easily. The gameplay is not helping out either.
