"Squashing Makes Me Feel Good!" - Touch Arcade 5/5
"It’s just brilliant fun. Shoot stuff, smile, shoot more stuff." - Pocket Gamer 9/10
The Bug Butcher is an intense action shooter, wrapped in stylistic 2D art, and smeared with humor where timing and fierce reflexes are paramount!
The gameplay has an extremely simple core mechanic that is easy to understand, but hard to master. Plus, who doesn’t love a universe where you wield a beefy arsenal of military grade weaponry.
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.

Get your bug guts here! This snarky sci-fi shooter pits you against waves of alien creepy-crawlies. Clearing out the game’s infested space base takes sharp reflexes—though simple controls and an awesome arsenal of bug zappers are at your disposal (our favorite is the beam gun). We love the ways a variety of enemies and mission types keep the action fresh.
Lots of fun but it needs a little more improvement
Sometimes when pressing the special attack it doesn't register causing the button to highlight but not do anything. Also maybe making the fire button a little bigger and getting a joystick would super helpful. I love this game and would highly appreciate a few updates
Fun, Addicting, Challenging!
This is a very fun game with great animation and graphics. It is incredibly challenging, yet very fun and addicting. Love the progression system of upgrading weapons and abilities. Load times can be a little long on some devices, but overall I highly recommend this game!
