Girls invaded your favorite park. Collect all your toys without catching cooties, and try not to fall into the water or any holes. You can throw soccer balls to keep the girls away, but don't hurt anybody or you'll get into real trouble.

An unexpected, princess-themed birthday party has ruined your day at the park. Hurry up and collect all of your toys so that you can escape before one of the girls gives you cooties. They're pretty quick, so be careful, and don't be afraid to throw your ball at them if you need to. That should knock them down on their butt just long enough for you to sneak by.

Cooties is a top down game of avoidance in a park crowded by little girls. You can throw soccer balls or shoot your toy blaster to keep them away, but they only slow girls down for a moment. Luckily there's other toys that might help protect you. Collecting once grants a brief power up that cancels any ongoing effects provided by other toys. Sometimes you may wish to pass by a toy to save the powerup for later, but remember, you need to collect them all in order to finish a level. Happy hunting.
