The Bug Butcher is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot em up game where peril comes from above. So in a nutshell, pest control with machine guns in space. The core mechanics hold old ties from the classic arcade shooter “Super Pang” where you shoot vertically, but with modern day twists. You are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator who has a knack for decimating bugs. Harry’s current assignment takes him to the infested futuristic research facility on planet Zoit. The surviving and dwindling number of scientists employed him for his slaughtering skills. Harry’s mission: survive until the decontamination of the building is complete, hoard coins like his life depended on it, and protect the scientists at all costs. Watch out for the spiders as they have a particular fondness for rubber encased scientists. After landing, you will move from room to room through the facility blasting rockets, lasers, and wielding the power of lighting upwards at anything not human.

Space Invaders with bugs

Not sure if it was the developers plan but plays a lot like Space Invaders. Tight controls and frentic action make for a game that is great to play when you got 15 minutes to kill or just want to veg out and kill some bugs. Has decent humor and writing that will be skipped through by most. There is a story but this feels more like a game for those who like to shoot for the top score on the leaderboards. Would like to see more upgrades and like most games like this it can get repetive. Never the less, a great effort on the part of the devs and a good game to kill a few brain cells with.
