Mister Mosquito

Mister Mosquito is one of the weirdest games of all time.  It was released in 2002 on the PlayStation2.  The goal of the game is to suck blood from the unsuspecting Yamada family members while they go about their business.  Gameplay is based on the player flying in while remaining unseen (being seen triggers battle mode where the player has to hit pressure points to relax the victim before continuing.), finding an optimal bloodsucking area, and proceeding to suck the victim’s blood.  This is where things get tricky.  If the player sucks too fast or slow the victim will become stressed and a stress meter will start to fill.  If the stress meter fills the victim will swat the player resulting in death.  Once the player has sucked enough blood the stage is complete and the player can move to the next stage.
