Stunt Bugs

BryanLadybugs and gentle-mites! Bring your larvae and hatchlings to see the spectacular Buzz and his friends become stunt rider legends in Stunt Bugs! Ride and flip across 48 high flying levels to collect star balloons and coins to hire new trick performing dreamers in this bike-riding physics adventure game. This bunch of feat performing pests have special moves to wow their fans and make grabbing extra points so much easier. It is a cutesy game with a wonderful cartoon visual style that the whole family can enjoy on most major mobile devices. Maybe these little critters' antics will keep those young, impressionable children from being dare-devils themselves. No promises, though.

Stunt BugsNo handlebar peripheral needed to control these airtime enthusiasts; just tap and hold the virtual throttle button on the device's bottom right corner to start moving. The star button in the screen's bottom left corner activates the bug's particular stunt move and is quite handy for grabbing those out-of-reach balloons and coins. As you jump and soar through the air, you can tilt the device to rotate your rider for sweet flips or direct their flight if they are floating on air currents. Your goal is to hit the big time at Bugopolis, but you need to pass each level with at least one star to hit your next action venue. Everything you run into gets the player points, but coins are only for employing new stunt bugs and the balloons are for increasing your star rating for the level. Its got the high score beating fun of Angry Birds with a child-like charm that makes reminisce of the classic cartoons of old.

Stunt Bugs takes the combo-scoring stunt games away from the norm and puts loads of thoughtful game assets that these games typically lack. The standard Hero's Journey plot structure, if a bit overused, gives Buzz and the gang a reason to achieve their dreams and they look good doing it with the delightful game art for all the riders and environment. Random House Digital made a quirky casual title that will put a smile on your face with its mild difficulty and adorable little insect friends to cruise around with.

The game has some great riding tunes for each different area that ranges from a barnyard hoedown to some city-slicker rock 'n' roll. I still wait at the main menu just to hear the buzzing theme song every time I open up the app. Can you reach the legendary status of Weevil McNeevil and become the next big star of Bugopolis? It will take a few friends and a lot of determination to figure it out.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on a iPod Touch 3rd Generation. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
