Mister Mosquito: The Evil Tormentor of Families

Today we're going to take a look at a game that involves a violent blood-sucker.  No, this article isn't about BloodRayne, we're talking about Mister Mosquito!

As you can guess from the title, Mister Mosquito follows the journey of a mosquito whose goal is to suck the blood out of an innocent family, and to give them malaria (ok maybe not the malaria part).  You are given control of a mosquito and tasked with completing his quest without being spotted and swatted.

The mosquito can only suck blood from predetermined locations on the victim's body, dashing your hopes and dreams of giving someone a mosquito bite on the inside of their mouth or on their eyeball (admit you're a little curious to see how that would have played out).  However, there are some more scandalous areas that you are allowed to draw blood from:

Yes, he's sitting right where you think he is.

While sucking blood, you must be careful not to alert the victim to your presence, or it's instant death by means of swatting.  Also, if you fly around too obviously before landing on the victim, he/she will spot you and will attempt to knock you out of the sky.  To calm the victim down, the game introduces a strange mosquito version of acupuncture therapy, where the mosquito can jab the victim at various locations on their body. 

I'm not making this up, that pressure point is actually in the crotch area.

Afterwards they will fall asleep and you can draw blood in peace.  I never knew mosquitoes had this kind of power over human beings, besides the whole malaria thing that is.

In addition to giving the family a nasty case of mosquito bites, the mosquito is one evil bastard who likes to torment them in other ways.  He can perform actions such as turning on stereos and switching off lights in the house, baffling the family members, who no doubt fear their house is possessed by demons.

That pretty much sums up the entire game, leave it to Japan to spit out an odd game like this.  According to Mister Mosquito, these little insects are pretty damn malicious, resorting to knocking you unconscious if they want your blood bad enough.  Have you guys ever played Mister Mosquito?  If so, did you find it to be a pretty weird concept?
