Bugz is an App for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It was created by David Perry and currently is being sold for $0.99; however there is a free Lite version which limits the amount you can play.
Bugz is quite a simple game; the object of the game is to explode bugs, causing a chain reaction and exploding enough bugs to complete the challenge. Each level will give you a requirement of the number of bugs that must be destroyed to complete the level. The bugs run around the screen and as the game goes on special bugs will appear and these are added to the requirements.
To play Bugz you simply have to tap the screen once. The challenge is knowing where and when to do this. When you tap, you will create an explosion which will destroy any bug caught in the blast radius; these bugs will then also explode and create their own circular blast area which will kill any bug caught in that, repeating as a chain reaction until no bugs are killed by the final blast. Timing is everything in this game and you will need to wait until enough bugs are in the right place before tapping.
One great feature of Bugz is the ability to have separate profiles, so that you can save your progress individually of other users. This is a clever addition as far too many games need you to wipe your progress in order to play the early levels again, or to let another player start from the beginning.
There are 102 levels to play through, but there is a Lite version which allows you to play 17 levels and this version is free to download. The game is very addictive. The games that end with you narrowly missing the total will frustrate you and force you to keep playing until you succeed. The game play is simple, the music is entertaining but not varied enough, and the graphics are weak, but with a game like this, there is no need for good graphics.
If you’ve ever had an issue with real bugs, you can get your revenge in Bugz. This game will keep you playing over and over, and really does have a replay value. As the levels get more and more challenging, it will hold your interest even more. This game is highly recommended for its low price. Bugz is available to download from the App Store for $0.99.
