The gameplay is quite simple, relying at its core on the "pick pieces up and place them on the gameboard" model used in several games such as MacPipes. In Germs, the player picks up germ sprites from a "culture dish" and arranges them on the gameboard in patterns of the same color to make them disappear.
Germs' main features are:
- Gorgeous artwork in thousands of colors
- Six different animated germs-some cute, some nasty, all
- New In-App Store.
- Improved Magic Mouse support.
- A few minor bug fixes and code improvements.
- Updated Help.
