Immerse yourself into a world of hidden creatures!
Our planet is full of life. Besides all the creatures that can be seen with the naked eye, there are millions of microscopic creatures with amazing features.
Several scientific disciplines study and classify all of these creatures, but there is still much to do and learn.
Some organisms have developed wonderful camouflage mechanisms that make them invisible to conventional microscopes. However, a random series of events has transformed your Nintendo DSi camera into a very special Microscope that allows you to find them.
Capture all of these organisms and show the world your fantastic discoveries!.
AfterZoom takes place in a Lab where there are 3 main areas: the Microscope, the Sample Bank and the Chemical Lab.
- The Microscope is useful to search for organisms and other elements on the player's surroundings, which may be found in different places and at different zoom levels.
- The organisms collected are stored in the Sample Bank. Here, one can also feed them so they are healthy. The healthier they are, the faster they'll grow and the less one will have to check on them.
- The elements found with the Microscope are stored in the Chemical Lab, which is also where one mixes up new elements for the colonies, based on actual chemistry formulas.
Almost all the organisms are in too wild a state to allow a capture. So, before one can store them, it is necessary to weaken them using other organisms from the Sample Bank in a role fight that only lasts 30 seconds.
Not all of the organisms have the same stamina nor strike force, which means that strategy is necessary to ensure a win when choosing the right organism to send into a fight.

7.5/10 Good “There have been a few other game designs in the past that have had you doing real world legwork to catalog creatures, like scanning UPC codes or spinning music CDs to generate monster data. AfterZoom captures that same addictive sense of fun as you look for "just one more," and its unique hook could keep monster-collecting gamers busy for a while.” IGN
8.0/10 “It is a rare game that can captivate a a variety of ages equally, but AfterZoom seems to have hit that high note quite well. I give AfterZoom an 8 out of 10, and recommend it for your little budding scientists.” Brutal Gamer
