Mimic

A 4-player, local multiplayer game in which you must stealthily remove your opponents from play, whilst avoiding detection yourself. You are all aliens, competing with each other live on an intergalactic TV game show. You will be given mind control over someone in the crowd, and your task will be to tag other aliens - but there's a catch! You must act as humanly as possible, and blend in with the crowd to avoid being spotted yourself. Points are awarded for every other alien (player) you successfully tag, and doing this earns you power-ups - such as the all-important ability to swap bodies. This will come in useful after you've zapped a fellow player! Ready your mind probes - the player who spots the most aliens will win!
