A computer's mazelike circuitry is infected with bugs, and you have been sent in to destroy them. You are armed with bombs, mines, blockades, and various types of hatchlings, which when released will track the bugs and hopefully stop them.
The basic gameplay is inspired by Dynablaster, but it differs because there is more than one way to kill the foes off. Depending on which way you push the joystick as you press fire, you will either release a quick-exploding bomb, a proximity mine, or a hatchling. Collecting 'EN' symbols will restore your energy, and 'IQ' symbols increase the ability of your hatchlings to track and hit your foes. Be careful when placing blocks; it is possible to shut yourself in.
The single-player game gives you three lives, plus another when you complete each of the 50 levels. The multi-player game can be played in 2 different ways - co-operative (work together to clear the computer of bugs) or competitive (Dynablaster-style free-for-all destruction).
Bugbomber is a fun and huge puzzle games that features 50 levels of addictive gameplay for either one or up to four players. A clone of Bomberman, Bug Bomber adds to the already addictive gameplay with special blocks and fun two-player mode. Your objective is to change the color of special blocks that are scattered across the screen, while destroying enemies with bombs. The game even has a plot: you are assigned to debug a computer. Naturally, the bugs (groan) come out to thwart you in every way they can.
In the single-player mode, Bugbomber becomes boring after a dozen or so levels, because the 50 level are not that different from each other. The multiplayer mode is where the game boasts more long-term play value. If you have the appropriate adapter, you can even play with up to 3 other friends in a tournament mode. All in all, a fun puzzle game, although it is disappointing that the huge number of levels is not matched by enough diversity to make it more fun. A lot of fun in multiplayer mode and reasonably fun in solo-player mode - before you get bored with the sameness of levels.
