Nucleus™ is a mechanics-based shooter in which the players must take on an ever expanding and dividing organism (‘The Scourge') viewed entirely through a microscope on a cellular level. Take control of your remote unit and reduce the infestation.

Players steer the cell around an organic, microscopic environment, manipulating inert cells and destroying aggressive ones. The aim of each level is to destroy ‘The Scourge’. These organisms have viruses that change cells and aggressively attack. Players can manipulate inert cells by pushing and pulling them into clumps and using the cells to harvest more power, or to shield their bodies.


  • Mass of Gameplay - Includes over 40 levels with varied difficulty.
  • 1-2P Co-op Multiplayer - Select a level from three phases: Training, Intermediate and Advanced moving through the digestive, circulatory and nervous systems.
  • Unique Mechanics & Art Style – New, compelling mechanics of cell manipulation. The game mimics the actual characteristics of a real microscope.
  • Online Ranking – Take your spot on the leader boards and show that you’re the best in the world.
