Are you ready to learn about fungal science through this amazing new game?
Fungal Invaders was co-developed by scientists at the University of Aberdeen who are researching how fungi cause infections!
Fungi are special microbes that can infect the human body. We use antibiotics to kill fungi and fight these nasty infections. Sometimes fungi can evolve resistance to antibiotics and these infections are very difficult to treat and need lots of different antibiotics.
If you have ever played a retro arcade game, then you already know how to play Fungal Invaders!

If that wasn’t hard enough, not all your antibiotic weapons can kill all of the invaders - – so think before you fire that syringe!
Fungal Invaders was developed by Game Dr and Monocool Interactive for research group of Professor Neil Gow, University of Aberdeen.
