"For a game about bugs, it is noticibly less buggy than the majority of so called "triple A" games. Which is sad, sinec I was looking for bugs."

I adore the idea of a radiated roach in a post-nuclear world, graphics are really charming and I love the title. Unfortunately, that's it for me. The game feels... tiresome, monotonous and unnecessarily difficult. I don't feel any incentive to keep playing, and I feel like it's all one big mess made out of a very interesting idea. A shame, really. And the lack of sound settings is really irritating.

The art style is pretty good, but despite being a almost bullet hell, it has a drawback: there are no powerups. You'll have 2 abilities that you can use, but only once. You can regain them by completing the level, so I advice you use them sparingly.

One is a laser that has a wide radius and can kill anything it touches, and another is a shield (?).

Along the game, the game has a pretty good soundtrack that has that 1980's feel to it, so in rating of controls, gameplay, music, & difficulty, I'd give it a overall 8/10.

Oh, forgot I left the difficulty part out: you only got 3 to choose from, not bad right? WRONG! You only get to choose hard, hard, and hard!

This game is ridiculous. All you have to do in the first 3 levels is hold down the down arrow key to win.

This game is okay, got this for free from indiegala, wouldn't really play it much aside from the trading cards. This game could be a lot better if there were more things to customize like types of attacks or powerups. I honestly couldn't see myself paying $7 for this game ever. It's okay but just not that fun.
