Out now..

This is the infamous strategy game that wouldn't die. It's virulent. It's infectious. It's to die for...

Trilobyte Games has re-built the wickedly maddening “microscope puzzle” from The 7th Guest. Re-imagined expressly for the iPad, The 7th Guest: Infection is a strategy game for two players or for single play against the mad genius, Henry Stauf.

Easy to play, but ever-challenging and difficult to master, this new version of the classic game takes advantage of Apple’s Game Center™, enabling you to match your play against friends and other players worldwide.

• Rich graphical environment with intuitive and engaging game play
• Play head to head with friends
• Play against Stauf himself... if you can withstand his maddening taunts
• Seven difficulty levels. Few will beat Ol' Uncle Henry when he is at his best.
• Original soundtrack by MazeDude
• Integrated Game Center

The Story
Old man Stauf built a house and filled it with his toys. Or so the legend goes. It is said that one of these games could be found by entering the madman's laboratory and peering into his microscope. The germs and microbes there seemed to be imbued with his spirit and intelligence. It is also said that perfectly sane people who attempted to beat him at his own game went completely, absolutely, stark raving mad. Trilobyte has brought the microscope to you, giving you the opportunity to take up the challenge. But you play at your own risk. You have been warned.

Grrr, not yet. The KI is quite intimidating on low levels already- great app and a must-buy if you're into abstract boardgames, I'd say. One thing I wonder, how do you set up a game with more than two human players (rules quote: "a (...) game played by two OR MORE players")?

Now playing: Tiny Bubbles, Potion Explosion, Among the Stars, Lanterns, Ascension, Race for the Galaxy
Waiting for: Enough time to play through the back catalogue of my recent purchases

Hi guys,

First of all, congrats on the release.

I do have an honest question here: for those who played it, are there any differences gameplay-wise between this game and Consumed - http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...light=consumed?

I haven't played Consumed, but I would think that anything in the reversi family is going to have similar gameplay. The origins of Ataxx and the Microscope Puzzle all go back to the original Infection that was created for the C64, Amiga, and Atari ST. We have the historical tree posted on our media release page right now: https://sites.google.com/site/trilobytemediaroom/

Does anyone have a direct compare/contrast between Consumed and The 7th Guest: Infection ("Microscope Puzzle").
