PatrickPest ControlPest Control is the latest from Nitrome, makers of the recent HeadCase and YinYang. You are the exterminator, your job: kill the bugs. You run through a wide variety of scenarios including different kinds of bugs, all timed, with slightly different win conditions. It's WarioWare with a swatter, and it (mostly) works.

The game is split into several levels that each have nine scenarios to beat. Each scenario involves a different kind of insect. For instance, in one you'll need to swat 40 flies in 30 seconds; in another you'll need to swat the bees without getting hit by their stingers, all in less than 25 seconds. The gameplay is simple: you control the position of a swatter with the mouse, and when you click, it swats. You must complete every challenge to unlock and advance to the boss scenario for the level, and you can replay them in any order to try for a higher score.

The game is not perfect though, both psychologically and in the gameplay balance. The bee levels in particular really get me, I was stung by 11 bees back in September while walking my dog through a marsh, the feeling still haunts my nightmares; if you've ever had an unpleasant experience with any member of the Arthropoda sub-phylum you'll be able to face those repressed memories here, probably to therapeutic benefit. Then there's the gameplay, because each section is a distinct version of the game, there is a need to give each a deal of balancing and play testing in order to keep the difficulty curve consistent and avoid any nagging issues. A terrible example of this is level 4-1, where you must swat down the fireflies while they're unlit. The problem there is they stay unlit for inconsistent time periods and without warning return to their harmful lit states. There are less dramatic examples of disproportionately difficult sections, particularly later on, that impede the player from enjoying a smooth flow to completion. Topping it all off, the chronic clicking involved in some of these levels can be exhausting, which might just compound with the disgust of dealing with all those bugs, but nobody said the job of an exterminator would be easy.

If you've got the stomach for it, I recommend you suit up and play Pest Control.

This is the first nitrome game in a long time that I have seriously enjoyed. Yes, there were a few scenarios that were a little unbalanced (3-2 is really hard), but other than that, the game is extrordinarily well done.

props Nitrome, this is why people play your games.

I would like to revise my previous comment. it's not that 3-2 is too hard, it's that at level 3, the difficulty curve bends just a little too much. levels 1 and 2 are easy, level 3 is med-hard.

Hit the ants that cross the bottom of the screen until the two diagonal lines of ants cross. When they do smack where they cross so that multiple ants die all at once, and then go back to hitting the line at the bottom. I hope you understand.

Cute game. I love the graphics. But I agree with some of the review comments about the difficulty. I wrote a similar game way back in 2001 called "Bug Control", and while testing the game I found that my arm got really sore. Its the random jerking around of the mouse that does it. I recommend frequent breaks when playing a game like this.

For me, the key to defeating the bees/wasps was

to take them on individually. I know, they all look the same, but you can still find out which wasp you swatted last by their movement pattern and their increased speed. As they get faster when swatted once or twice (it takes three swats to kill them), you'll just earn a bunch of furious wasps if you swat them indiscriminately. When you've only got half of them left, you can let your blind killer instinct loose...

Technically, a lot of the bugs you kill the game aren't really "pests"..

Otherwise, a nice game, albeit not really animal-friendly.

Also..

There are a few bugs in the game (the ones only the game creators can swat), and the difficulty level is all over the place. The level where you have to keep two bugs in the air (and destroy them if you can) is bugged - once you kill one of the bugs you automatically fail, you must try to keep both of the bugs alive or kill them at the exact same time.

The last boss fight is also quite difficult, but mostly because of shoddy collision detection. It took me a while to realize that only the exact center of the swatter is susceptible to "dying", and the rest is invincible. After that, everything was cakewalk.

Not a superb game in my book. The graphics are nice, as expected, it's stylish and I like the many unique bug behaviours, but other than that, it's mostly just an annoying click-fest for me.

To each his own, I guess.

For the fireflies...

There is always one which is unlit, no matter how many of them are there. The level gets exponentially easier the more flies you successfully hit. If you cannot pass the level, apart from trying to be faster, try camping in the middle of the screen and hitting every black fly you can. Be reckless at the beginning of the level and more careful as more flies are dead (and less lives you have). Once the number of flies is diminished you can "gamble" and follow them in turns until the followed one gets unlit. After a certain number of tries you have to get lucky.

That's right, Steven, the moment you get wet, it's game over in that level.

@ the fireflies: I managed to complete it in the meantime, and my only advice is "Try it a hundred times, and be lucky once."

The "submit score"-button didn't work for me either, maybe because I didn't complete the whole game in one sitting.

great strategys for bosses!!!

simply dodge him, go for the behind first, because it becomes unhittable later in the level. remember where he stops, because he only stops in 2 places!

mega spider:

spider on steroids! anyway, use teleport

right click, click where you want to go

to dodge his attacks untill he jumps at you then just circle round and strike!

scorpion:

use teleport right away. complete the move right as his tail flashes. that means he's locked on to you. WARNING!!!! DO NOT TELEPORT TO HURT HIS EYES! YOU WILL GET HURT!!!

any hints on 4.8 apart from cheating??

some good hints for 4.1 which makes it easy as cake:

*as soon as game starts click on the first grey thingy, you should always have enough time to kill it an it doesnt matter if you click on anything else in the process
*as soon as you loose a life you got sth like 0.5s where u are invincable, that means click on everything that moves asap.

as soon as you are down to 5 follow single thingies and it should be no prob.

Is anyone nowadays playing the game as-is, or are you just trying out different ways how to cheat? I mean, look at gamemaster's post about "strategies" - use teleport, don't use teleport here, use it there.. well newsflash, this "teleport" is as much a cheat as is hitting the rewind button to stop the time.

What's the point of playing the game if you'll cheat? Seeing the final screen? I really don't understand how the win-game screen in any way rewarding if you cheated your way through to see it...

elemeno - in defense of all game reviewers, it is just not humanly possible to have played every game out there, nor to know about every mini-game that was included as a pack-in to a niche game console peripheral, which historically receive only a small fraction of the market penetration the parent console sees.

So, what may seem obvious to you, may not be to someone else.

Besides, swatting insects with a fly swatter is a fairly common practice, so making a game out of it is what seems obvious to me.

@Kaschko/level 12: Yes, you can see which wasp you already hit. The ones that have been swatted before will fly faster, and will come for your cursor more directly. Take them on one by one, then it won't take you 24/7 to complete the level. It may well take you 24+7 replays, though. If you managed to do the fireflies, however, you can complete the wasps as well.

Just concentrate on the area where all the ants meet. It's between the trees in the lower middle of the screen. If you have touchpad and mouse do some double clicks.
If the area is empty jump around and wait until it's crowded again.

This reminds me of a game in the arcades here in the Philippines once. The control is a hammer. I grab the hammer then whack a level I want to play. Then it tells me what to do and if I finish reading, I whack the the screen to play the level (The level starts in...09 seconds something). For example. In the Windowpane level, I'm supposed to whack...sort of like 15 windowpane-stealing ninjas WITHOUT hitting the bomb-carrying soldiers. If I hit a soldier, I lose a life. 3 hits, game over. Good times. It made my wrist hurt.

THIS IS THE BEST CHEAT FOR 3.2 (WASPS)

What you have to do is. When they are flying, hit each one ONE AT A TIME. K? Once you chose thy one you wanna kill, hit them in the head about 5 times fast!!!(FAST IS IMPORTANT) or until they spin off the screen. Once you beat it (i did) they will swirl off the screen so you know they died. Do this the same for all 5 wasps

you need to click on a wasp 10 times to kill it.Try to seperate them as much if you can, or if you can't, move your mouse in a circle so they all follow and go in the same derection.This should make it easier becouse you wont have stingers near you when you try clicking on wasps. Dont give up!

It is actually possible to move the swatter to hit the fly through the bottom of the flytrap. It is possible to do this for both flies, but you must be VERY quick. I managed to get 1696 score doing this. (Compare this with what you got to find out how much faster it is.) If you got more score than me without doing this, you are a god.

How to click really fast.

Use 2 hands. Hold your mouse with your undominant hand. If you are right handed, hold mouse with your left hand. Use your right index finger to "poke" the mouse button.This is better because you use your whole arm instead of your finger.

Use right click then rewind

3.2 is impossible, I've tried to aim each one 5 times, but everytime before I even kill 1, I lost all my lives.

I know how to get past the ants!

Swat them when they first come down. When they start walking across the bottom and crossing, move up and down.

Just so you know, any "cheats" involving right-clicking no longer work. Nitrome changed something, so now when you right-click, it's not the flash menu anymore, therefore no Play, Rewind, etc.

Spider:

Move the swatter down in a corner, then wait till he gets to the swatter, then move it somewhere else. Only swat it one time.
