A brand new game was just added to Ferry Halim's inimitable Orisinal site, a simply sublime collection of casual Web games made in Flash. Bugs is a gorgeous addition that fits in perfectly with the others, and it offers light-hearted gameplay that will tickle your funny bone with delight.
The object of the game is to send as many bugs flying as you can by making the little girl jump up and down. First, make a bubble by pressing and holding the mouse button. The longer you hold the button down the larger the bubble will grow, but don't let any bugs touch the bubble or it will pop! Release the mouse button to send the girl jumping in the air, and then use the mouse to make sure she doesn't land on any bugs. When she lands, all bugs within the area around the girl—and relative to the size of the bubble—will fly away. Bonus points are awarded based on the number of bugs released with each jump.
Occasionally a special blinking bug will make an appearance. If you manage to include this special bug in the jump area it will leave behind a special green power-up that will soon disappear. Grab it before it disappears to make a special green invincible bubble that the bugs cannot pop, but be careful. Although the green bubble is impervious, the girl is still vulnerable to being bitten by a bug.
To attain higher scores, you should always try to make as large a bubble as possible before sending the girl jumping. Beware of the special blinking bugs, as they move quite a bit faster than the other bugs and can sneak up and pop the bubble before you realize it.
Like a finely crafted, collector's edition boxed set, no other site comes close to matching the variety or harmonious style of interactive experiences that Ferry has so lovingly created with his Orisinal games collection. Casual games par excellence. Click.
