Video games as we know them have been around since the 1970s, and have run the gamut of genres from action and adventure to sports and strategy. In some games you play cards, drive a race car, or play the heroic role of a knight in shining armor. Well, now there’s a new game you can play that puts you in the mobile A/C repair world!
Our hero helps fight unpleasant HVAC odors in the virtual world!
Here’s a description from the game’s website:
In the depths of the car, way down below the dashboard, these dark, moist regions are ruled by Morbo the Merciless with his army of pollen, viruses and fungi. Morbo and his nasty followers take charge of the air conditioning system and make life difficult for the driver.
You have a mission: rid the air conditioning system of all harmful bacteria, viruses and fungal spores before they reach the inside of the vehicle, because they can become really unpleasant there.
Steer the hero of the game, the intrepid penguin, through the microcosm of the air conditioning system. With not a thought for his own safety, he has allowed himself to be shrunk to the size of a microbe to ensure law and order, hygiene and cleanliness. Equipped with a state of the art jet pack and highly effective weapons, he hunts down the ‘bad guys’.
Help him on his mission, but take care! Every opponent that gets away weakens the hero. Clever navigation and good aim are what you need. We wish you lots of fun playing “AirConator”!
