Playing around with the traditional RTS genre, CURE adds a unique upgrading system that you would normally find in an RPG. As you play, you can custom tailor your units using genetic engineering, and these changes are permanent. You can focus crafting a team that has a specific ability, and/or you can specialize your units so that they have specific properties – such as strength or speed. The more you play, the more you can create an ideal team to conquer your online opponents. CURE has it’s backing in real world current microbiology, and even though it could be used as an educational tool and an introduction to microbiology, the main focus of CURE is to be a very engaging, challenging, and rewarding RTS.
· Persistence: You can upgrade your units, and these changes are permanent.
· Dynamic Units: Your units are unique and distinguishable. How your units look is based on how you upgrade them. No two players will ever be the exact same.
