Chances are, you may have seen some of the products from Popcap Games
and (if you haven't tried them already) may wonder what it's all about. Popcap uses a tried and true formula of making little, addictive games that are fairly easy to learn and hard to stop playing.
One such game is Insaniquarium.
On the surface, it looks pretty simple. You have an aquarium and as long as you keep your fish fed, they'll help you earn money. You use that money to purchase new fish and upgrades. So far, so good. Did I mention the aliens? Yes, it seems that aliens see your peaceful aquarium as the only thing that stands between them and world domination. If you're not vigilant, the evil creatures from another dimention will kill all of your fish and you'll have to start over. Fortunately, you have a laser zapper that you can use to disintigrate those nasty aliens and let your fish live and grow.
You can play the game for free on the Popcap website
or you can download a trial version. The full version not only lets you play through all of the levels of the game, but also includes a virtual aquarium and screen saver which you can set any way you like (in case you're sick and tired of the aliens, for instance).
