Finger-Bug app review: find your home



Life as a bug isn't easy especially when you need to fight the elements just to survive. The Finger-Bug game for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has you playing as a cute little bug who just wants to find its home again. The app uses an arcade-style game play which makes it all the cuter and even more entertaining. You’re in for cute graphics, adorable characters, and some real challenges as you battle your way back home.

Battle Your Way Back

We all know how damaging wind can be but imagine how much more powerful it is to a bug! In Finger-Bug you were caught in a horribly powerful tornado that has in turn blown you very far from your home. It's not just one world you need to find your way through; it's many with all different types of enemies who are just waiting to gobble you up. And to top it off the wind is still strong and making your journey that much tougher. As mentioned the app uses arcade-style physics that feel both familiar and fun. It won't take you long at all to pick up on the game controls.

This app has recently been updated with a few new features such as the home button which you'll now find on the right hand side of the screen, there is a light score that floats when you ram into or pick up any goodies and enemies, and now you can enjoy a sound effect whenever you activate the star. The app doesn't currently have a customer rating or any customer comments.

Launch the Fun

It’s obvious from the moment you launch Finger-Bug that it has that retro style to it. The music is exactly what you’d find in an arcade game and so are the graphics. From the main menu you can get game instructions, check out the high scores, or just start playing. If you sign in through Facebook you’ll even get an extra life. As you work your way through the levels you will be working to collect objects such as fruit and pollen plus destroy enemies. The levels increase in difficulty as you play and I like that each one has its own unique look and feel. This keeps the game interesting of course but also extremely challenging because you never have a chance to get too comfortable.
