Visual Board Game Puzzler - Virus 3

Rating: 7.4/10 - 191 votes

Take over an entire grid in as few moves as possible in this strategy-based, color-changing puzzler! Virus 3 is a challenging visual and skill-based, problem-solving brainteaser game for kids where you must methodically take over a whole grid by ‘infecting’ adjacent blocks with a ‘virus’ (color) until the entire area is dominated by a single color. Using careful, step-by-step actions, take control of the grid by choosing the most advantageous color each time you switch viruses. Virus 3 also offers three different board shapes to choose from, as well as nine different layouts for each shape.

Skills required: This tricky visual puzzle game provides a stern exercise of your mental toughness and stamina; high levels of focus, concentration, and determination are required here. Color coordination skills are essential as is your ability to make strategic in-game decisions.

How to Play: A Flash-based, visual puzzle arcade game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). In each level, your task is to grow your ‘virus’ step-by-step until it covers the whole play area. The grid is separated into hundreds of small, colored blocks (squares, triangles, or hexagonal pieces, depending on your choice). At the beginning of the level, you control just one block – indicated by the dot in the center of it. Each time you change ‘virus’ color, you gain control of any adjacent blocks of the new color that you have just selected.

Complete the entire takeover of the grid in as few moves as possible. In the first level, you have either 40 or 35 ‘moves’ to complete the job, and this number reduces by one as you progress. You can choose to play with three different block types: Square, Hex, and Triangle. Each blocks type has two different grid layouts, and you can then choose whether to have 5 or 7 different colors displayed.

Using your computer mouse or touchpad, Left Click on the color you want the blocks to change to from the icons in the bottom right corner of the game screen. When you do this, each block under your control (the blocks with dots) change to the new color, and they also ‘assimilate’ (take over) adjacent blocks of that same color. Complete the takeover / infection of the entire grid within the permitted number of moves in order to progress to the next level.

Before you submit an error report, please review these common issues & solutions:

  • Please use US or Canada based VPN or Proxy service in case you are having a problem with Blocking or Connection Reset. We are currently looking for other reasonable solutions as well.
  • If you see a GAME BLOCKED message or if a game does NOT LOAD in 3-5 minutes even after page refresh - this is not blocked by us. Please speak to school/office administration or your network provider. They are blocking it.
  • If the game DOES not FIT the screen (part of the game area is below above the browser) - see the GO FULL SCREEN button just at the right above the game. This should solve it.
  • Make sure that Javascript is Enabled in your device browser.
  • You may only see a blank screen / or no game screen at all if advertisements are in any way restricted on your browser.
  • Make sure that No Ad Blocker is enabled on your browser (Many game developers only income source is through ads, so they don't make the games available if ads are blocked).
  • Even if your Ad Blocking software is disabled, it may cause an issue with loading an HTML5-based game.
  • You need a High Speed internet connection because some games use large files which take a minute or two to load for the first time.
  • Some games require you to tap/click on the game screen area when they load in order to start.
  • Playing on a different device or browser (with different settings) can often solve the issue.
  • Games are not available in all jurisdictions outside of the USA.
