Killer Snails: Assassins of the Sea
Silent assassins of the sea, cone snails use venom delivered through a needle-sharp tooth to attack their prey. Cone snail venom toxins are powerful enough to paralyze a large fish- or kill an unwary person. Yet in a surprising twist of nature, deadly venom toxins can become life-saving drugs! The first drug from cone snail toxins is used to relieve pain in cancer patients. With further scientific research other venom toxins will be discovered to treat diseases and disorders such as cancer and epilepsy.
In this exciting game, you are the scientist collecting predatory cone snails that prey on fish, worms and other mollusks, to build a venom arsenal of potentially life-saving peptide toxins. Race your opponents to create the winning venom cocktail and win the game!
