The Video Game Critic
A nice harmonized soundtrack compliments the action, and there are three skill levels. Easy to play but surprisingly deep, Ladybug is a shiny new gem in the Atari 2600 library.
Lady Bug is the archetype of the easy to play game, but with a real game depth. Its achievement and interest put it at the pantheon of the best VCS 2600 games and best homebrews, such as Strat-O-Gems (tested in Revival #35).
Retrogaming History
Proprio così! Il VCS batte il ColecoVision! La grafica è veramente OTTIMA, SUPERdettagliata e fluidissima, con pochissimi fenomeni di “blinking”! Il sonoro è a dir poco IDENTICO al coin-op! Tutti gli effetti e le musichette sembrano essere stati COPIATI e INCOLLATI dai chip della PCB arcade al “povero” ma onestissimo processore “factotum” TIA del VCS!!! La giocabilità, poi, è eccelsa (valutazione ovviamente sempre riferita ad una struttura “limitata” che è caratteristica di un gioco di labirinti in stile primi anni ’80). Si possono anche utilizzare alcune delle tecniche di gioco tipiche del coin-op, perchè i pattern di movimento dei nemici sembrano anch’essi presi pari pari dal gioco da sala. Una piacevolissima sensazione, perciò, per tutti coloro che avevano gettato tonnellate di 100/200£ nel raccoglitore di monete del cabinato di Lady Bug... ed un gran bel gioco per tutti gli altri.Un altro MUST-HAVE per tutti i possessori di VCS/2600!!!
The Atari Times
Control is excellent and smooth. There's no delay as you zip around the maze. The gameplay is also a perfect clone of the arcade. You can push the doors around just as easily as before. One can only speculate how good the Coleco version of this game would have been if released. After their past 2600 failures, it's hard to imagine it would have been 1/2 as good as this effort. If you liked Lady Bug in the arcades and want to bring that experience home, you won't do better than this.

And so, with moist eyes I give one of my favorite ColecoVision ports a big thumbs down for the Atari 2600. Don’t worry that the game has been forgotten over the years. I think it was intentional.
