Can't remember name of a game! Kind of like Osmos, but older.

Hey guys,

I raped the hell out of google with different terms, trying to find the name of this game.

It involves combat using single cell organisms.

All I remember is, you could play another person, on the same computer. I think the cells were green and orange. It's turn based, you can select individual cells and either move them into a different field (board patterned, but not visibly), or merge them with other cells. Different cells had different statistics, like strength and fertility and such.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This one is like Osmos, but it is not the one you are talking about:


You described one I know I've seen on the store... but I couldn't find it, or recall the name either :(

There's also a game for iOS where your colonies slowly develop strength, and then you send them out against each other.  Can't remember the name though.

Thank you guys for your efforts and replies!

Unfortunately none of those are the one I was thinking of. I've been at it for hours. :P

I wonder if we'll ever get to the bottom of this.

I remember also that when you select a certain cell, they rotate to signify selection. It had little selector marks on the edges of it aswell.

The two-player mode utilized green and orange, if I recall correctly, as faction-separating colors.
