Mosquito Ops is a free 3D OpenGL game for Mac OS X(10.4+, Universal Binary) and Windows PC. You play as a mosquito and must complete a various number of objectives, like sucking blood, or find all mosquito eggs.
The game was created by Oliver Hörbinger and Clemens Mautner Markhof as part of an university lecture within 12 weeks. It was our first OpenGL/C++ project and together we spent over 700hours to create our own game engine, the content and the logic.

Final words: have fun exploring and sucking blood!
Universal Binary (PPC/Intel)
MacOS X 10.4+. 1+Ghz, dedicated graphic card strongly recommended. Tested and running well on a Powerbook 1.33Ghz, 768MB RAM. On a Macbook 2Ghz may only the included demo level runs satisfying.
cool. but it needs some structure and a LOT of work

Interesting concept. I like the added tough of James Earl Jones' voice, but this game lacks purpose. I found it rather boring to fly around and attempt to suck blood after a while.
WASD: move and strafe
Space: toggle fly mode
F: "Mosquito Time" toggle

Great concept, unfortunately the game has little real substance. As it stands this should be counted as alpha software and not a proper release. I first up ran into massive problems with the games graphics cutting in and out of blocks and not rendering scenes correctly. Second to that the tutorial level has little to no instruction.
further adding to the disappointment is the lack of any concept apart from "go suck blood". This game has nowhere near enough pre release testing and user assistance to make it worth the download.
