your estranged uncle left you a single item when he passed; a faded cardboard box, the image nearly wiped away by time sans a few characters on a dismal neon grid:

DIS_IMIL_TE II

 you crack open the dusty package and slot the blank cartridge.

the game has no instructions itself.

dissimilate? what does that mean? and how could it have been made in 2021? this console stopped being produced in the late 80s.

the back of the box, also faded, boasts of a few features that may have been impressive back then:

  • 8 LEVELS OF ENDLESS
  • SOUNDTRACK OF MUSIC
  • SEVERAL COLORS IN GRAPHICS
  • PUZZLE FOR BRAIN, RHYTHM FOR HAND
  • THEORETICAL HIGH SCORE: 40500

you dust your old controller off and plug it in

I still have a bit of trouble understanding how to play this game, but this game gives me those retro vibes. I will keep playing it 

The music is perfect!

thank you for playing!

tips:
- you move automatically when the countdown reaches zero

- use arrow keys to select your next move

- use z or x to show where your sprite is

- goal is to eliminate all other sprites

- you eliminate a sprite by touching it when you are not the same sprite

- you lose by touching a sprite that is the same as yours

- other sprites move when the countdown is at 1
