Every so often a flash game will catch my eye, and I’ll feel an uncontrollable urge to tell people about it. I can assure you that these games will either be exceptionally weird, quality, or innovative. But there is one thing they all have in common: fun factor. Recently I was browsing Newgrounds.com and one of the front page games caught my eye; a little title called Seed of Destruction.
Created by the users BarfQuestion and Komix, SoD leads you through a magical physics based survival game, revolving around a little man jockeying a gigantic sperm cell. With plenty of content, including a few mini-games, SoD is sure to have you giggling with excitement for a long while after playing it.
The game is beautiful. Straight out beautiful. With the whole game hand drawn it’s extremely impressive for a flash game. From the Gameplay to the cut scenes you’re greeted with a colourful paper book style, and it feels like you’re playing the game inside a sketchpad. Musically it’s very interesting as well, with some sexy sound effects and music by Sulek. SoD has the whole package.
As far as controls go its dead simple, as a browser based game should be: you simply control the sperm using the 4 arrow keys, accelerate with the up or shift key, brake using down, and spin/change direction using left/right. With the aim of the game to take down civilians/army personnel/vehicles by either ramming them with your sperm or spinning and using the tail to deflect projectiles back at them.
In addition to the main game SoD presents you with a couple of cool mini-games:
- Pancake Factory - Try and squash as many pedestrians into pancakes within the allotted time limit!
- Grenade Juggling – Keep the grenades in the air as long as you can for a higher score, bounce them off the sperms body and deflect with the tail. You have 90 seconds!
- Missile Crisis – Survive as long as you can against an infinite amount of missiles. Don’t die!
- Custom Game – Create a custom level by choosing the enemies and intensity settings.
Seed of Destruction has earned a solid 9/10.
