UPDATE: Congrats Donburns99 for winning Bugz! I’ll email you the code as soon as possible. I picked a name out of a hat in case you wondered how I came up with the winner
I know a lot of people out there hate bugs, but this game about bugs is not a game you should hate. Bugz has very similar gameplay to another game, Sneezies. Your main and only objective is to pop as many “Bugz” as possible by starting a chain reaction of bugz popping. To acheive this, simply tap the screen to make a pop that will expand and shrink again. If your pop hits another bug it will pop it and start a chain reaction effect.
Beware, this game is very addicting. I know I’ve said a lot of games are addicting, but this game goes beyond addicting. In every level you have to pop a number of Bugz before you can move on to the next level. Don’t worry if you think you have a number of lives to deal with, as there are no lives in this game. If you can’t reach the goal you can always try the level again to see if you can pass it. Play through a whopping 102 levels in Bugz.
In Bugz you have to set up a profile first. Don’t worry as there is no hassle in setting this up, all you have to do is enter your name. With this profile you’ll be able save and load your current state quickly. In this proflie you can also view your own stats and an online high score table from throughout the world.
As you progress through this game, you’ll face more obstacles. There is a special colored bug that you need to pop in order to move on to the next level. A flower will hinder the bugz by moving in erratic patterns. If they get too close to the bugz, they will stop and eat them.
Another thing I have to give Bugz credit to is the great soundtrack. The soundtrack suits the gameplay almost as if they were meant to be together. But if you don’t like it, you can always use your own hip music.
Overall this is a game that is as addicting as crack from Didev Studios. You’ll be popping bugs for hours and trying to set new high scores to compete with the rest of the world. This game is only $0.99 right now so you should pick this up immediately. You’ll definitely not turn back and think this game was a bad purchase.
