This game is about the life stages of a bug. The art and music in this game are very relaxing. There are also puzzles on each level you must solve and figure out. Some people have issues with these puzzles, but just go watch some youtube videos if you get stuck as this is how i figured out last hardest puzzle in the game.

I recommend this game for Artistic styles and music in it. The storyline is non-existent, but i feel this game does not need a storyline. It just involves a bug evolving into different forms.

Just a short little game about life of bugs. Has some lovely art, animation though is lackluster.
Basically you get regular hidden object gameplay and few puzzles for 2 bucks.
Kinda average, but potenital is there.

A nice short game where you must search for various hidden objects. At times the controls can be a bit bad. Also the insect you control moves around agonizingly slowly. The final puzzle is very difficult, if you really don't get it then visit meekee7.github.io/beetlepuzzlesolver for a solution (this link works as of 8th September 2016). The music is also somewhat nice.

I don't like bugs.
When I first started playing I was kinda creeped.
But when I finished I came to the comclusion that it's pretty cool
c:
I'm a sucker for hidden object, and puzzels.
And this had a little of both.

So, to be honest, I wouldn't have been able to complete this game without the guides (Thanks guys!). This is an extremely difficult puzzle game, and a fairly difficult hidden object type game. But, when you complete the puzzles it's super satisfying! It was worth the money paid (49 cents) and was a pretty well driven game.

If you really had a hard day and do not want to play any dynamic stuff, this is just the game. A bit monotonous, with a soundtrack that gets stuck in your ear after a while, maybe a little tiring/boring, sometimes even a bit sinister. Slow movements, lots of insects. The visual style is rather interesting, through. Some puzzles may get you stuck, I struggled at least twice and had to consult a guide.
Takes a couple of hours to finish all five levels. A game to walk through and put away forever. Not bad, not at all, but I wouldn't call it a gem.
Just finished it and don't even know what else to say. Seems like I'm turning into an insect, too. Meh.

PS I'm giving it a thumbs up but it's more like shrugging my shoulders.

It's a point & click puzzle game with special art style as you can see.
So I guess there aren't much things I can comment about it, therefore I'll do a little list below.

Pros:
Special art style (subjective)
Good balanced puzzles (a little bit hard for newbie but easy for puzzle gamers)
Relaxing BGM

Cons:
Insects (If you hate them)
Ewwwww.... (some parts may let you feel sick or... you knowˊωˋ)
You hate puzzle game (You know this game has a Puzzle tag right?)

So! basically it's a good little puzzle game and there aren't really a reason that you'll regret to buy it...↓
If you aren't someone just buy it without thinking.

I am utterly shocked that this game has received such high reviews. This is a point and click with a different sort of artsy backdrop of bugs and plants. The artistry is nice, but it really stops there. I really tried to like this game and even completed it, hoping for some redeeming value. getting the bug to move from screen to screen was tedious, having to go back to old screens to collect items you weren't allowed to collect originally (even knowing it would be necessary later), and having to figure out what you were to do on each screen became monotonous. And the bug was SLOW. getting the puzzles to start was also slow (the lightening bugs, for example). There was a good 15 second delay. Does not seem like much in the scheme of things, but just sit there waiting to understand what the game is doing, and it seems like an eternity.

By the end of the game, when I wasn't sure what was next, my thought was, "it had better not make me go through all of the screens on this level to collect the water drops. If it does, its over!" It did not, thankfully, but that did not make the game any more fun.

There is no guide, except a little question mark in the upper right corner to "help" you when you are stuck. But, it does not always help you. It ONLY helps when looking for a collectable item and it is on the page you are on, otherwise it gongs. If there is another step (a branch, for instance) it does not help you find it. Time was wasted on trying to figure out what the many puzzles wanted. Once I understood them, it was fine, but it was not intuitive.

My final though was, "did I really spend money on this game?" I bought it on sale, but, that does not make me any happier. I buy most of my games based on the very positive ratings they receive. I would not pay money for this game unless I were a point and click collector. There are plenty of other point and clicks (even free) that are much more enjoyable. The two hours I lost on the game were not enjoyable ones.

Although a short game (I finished it in under two hours) it is definitely a fun game for those of you into point and click puzzle games. If not, maybe a nice introduction to the genre? The puzzles themselves are challenging without needing a guide to walk you through if you take the time to figure them out. More hidden objects are unlocked by finding other sets first.

Visually appealing and a beautiful soundtrack, definitely worth picking up on sale if you want an easy 100% completion on achievements and some trading cards.
