The game has the appearance of being set in a petri dish, and viewed through the lens of a microscope. Players will see individual cells, which are typically colored in Red, Blue, or Yellow. They will look to eliminate them by dragging one into another, again, of the same color. Should players accidentally cause two different colored cells to come into contact, the “odd color” that’s neither of the other two will be created. Thus, yellow contacting blue will create a third, red cell.
To further complicate this, cells will ricochet off of the area’s periphery, or wrong colored cells, thus increasing the chance for crowding, as new cells of various colors and sizes spawn on a regular basis. Should a particular cell be left in play for too long, it gets “sick”, turns a dark color, and begins to infect the other cells, which eventually precipitates the end of the game.
The game also has GPG Leaderboards integrated into it, so players can see how their scores rank against everyone else.
Little Cells can be downloaded for free from Google Play, though there is a limit to the number of times players can enjoy the game, which is three times within a set period, with more opportunities to play recurring every thirty minutes. For those who appreciate it and want to play it without time constraints, there’s a single In App Purchase to unlock the full game, which costs $1.99.
