Oh My God! The Bugs are Coming!Oh My God! The Bugs are Coming! is quite a large name for such a small Flash game, and yet the name fits the theme of this game well. Created by Tonypa, this game features lots of creepy crawlers that move across the screen with uncomfortable realism. The objective is to avoid the bugs altogether for as long as you possibly can. Once a bug bursts your bubble, the game is over.

Control is with the mouse. Simply move the mouse and the pink bubble will follow, albeit slightly behind. The lag provides fluidity of movement to the control of the bubble, increasing the challenge and the immersion experienced by the player. At regular intervals the pink bubble will expand slightly, thus making it more difficult to maneuver around the bugs. Yellow bubbles, once absorbed, will decrease the overall size of the pink one, a necessary goal if one is to last long into the later levels.

The game is delightfully simple to pick up and play, and is an excellent example of a very simple game design well-executed.

Thank you, Jay :)

I am proud to have figured out 3 different brains for the bugs. Plus, I did draw the bugs myself pixel by pixel based on the real bugs :)

Heh fun little game, albeit pretty simple. All of these themed games are starting to 'bug' me! (Alright, I admit that was a really bad joke!)

I really like this game. It's a fairly simple idea but it's quite addicting. Very well executed, as all of Tony's games are. Congratulations! Keep making fun games.

The notice that the site is down should probably be removed now, considering stuff's not down anymore.

Also; Ahhhh! It keeps growing and growing!!

The game has been rewritten for AS3 and updated, the bugs are less realistic now and there are 2 new types. Yes, now comes with even more bugs :)
