Red Cells Game

Update: 2012

I took links to this page off my site so you most likely got to this page from a game downloads site. I have stopped supporting the current version of Red Cells. The current Mac version is a PowerPC application, which means anyone running Mac OS X 10.7 and later cannot play the game. I would have to rewrite the game to support Intel Macs. Releasing a free version of the game would also require a rewrite. I haven't decided whether or not to rewrite the game, but I'm dropping support until a rewritten version emerges.

What is Red Cells?

Red Cells is a casual game for Mac OS X and Windows. Your mission is to remove red cells while keeping them from spreading. It comes with 30 human-designed levels, plus an unlimited number of randomly generated levels. Red Cells's control scheme is simple. You can play the game using only a single-button mouse.

Although the control scheme is simple, Red Cells is a fast-paced, challenging game that never plays the same way twice. A level that is easy to play one time can become difficult the next time you play it. Fans of the game Collapse and other action puzzle games will enjoy Red Cells. Download the demo and give Red Cells a try.

How To Play Red Cells

The game board in Red Cells consists of a grid of red and white cells. Click a red cell to change it to a white cell. Hold the mouse button and drag the mouse to cut a row or column of red cells.

Every few seconds the red cells spread and random white cells will mutate into red cells. The object of the game is to clear the grid of red cells. If the red cells spread past the edges of the grid, the game ends.

The Mac version will run on Intel Macs under Rosetta. Red Cells is not a demanding application so it should run well under Rosetta.
