The creative side is unleashed to design and build an assortment of creatures in a full-featured creature editor. Protista tasks the analytic side to program the creatures with a graphical programming language.
Then, the whole brain can sit back and watch its creations battle it out in a struggle of microscopic proportions.
Protista includes the following game modes:
- Sandbox - A quick way to see your creature in action in a free-play environment.
- Creature Studio - Dreams of oddness become reality.
- AI Lab - Aspiring programmers can develop programs to transform peace-loving microbes into killing machines.
- Race Track - A creature's mobility is put to the test.
- Battle Arena - Creatures are forced to fight until one creature is pushing up seaweed.
Tested on melonDS.
