The game features an alien invasion and the player takes on the role of a professor who wakes up to being changed into a genetically-modified soldier, a press release describes.

The game Fly on the Wall was given a runner-up prize. The player assumes the role of a fly which tries to live in the world of a man who likes everything to be tidy. Only one of the two can survive.

Three ideas received special encouragement awards: Preschool, which is a collection of games for young children, Music Missile, an aviation and music game for iPhone and The Adventures of the Blue Pigeon, which features a superhero.

A total of 11 computer game ideas were entered in the competition.
