Käme es zum direkten Vergleich zwischen Lady Bug, denn flotten Käfer dieses neuen Systems, und „Pac-Man“, dem derzeitigen ATARI-VCS-Aushängeschild, so würde Lady Bug wohl siegreich sein, ist der Käfer doch bei überlegter Steuerung trickreicher und verschlagener als die gelbe Pampelmuse. Ihm stehen aber auch Möglichkeiten offen, die ein variantenreicheres Austoben auf der Mattscheibe erleichtern.

About as perfect as a port for an 8-bit system can get, Lady Bug is based on the 1981 Universal arcade game. The enemies do blink excessively as they scurry around the maze, but the game is otherwise flawless. Controls are tight, graphics are spot-on, and spelling the word "SPECIAL" gives your Lady Bug the fun of feasting in the vegetable garden. Along with Ms. Pac-Man and Jr. Pac-Man, Lady Bug is one of the best maze games available for the home.

Amazingly, the standard ColecoVision controller does not interfere much with gameplay and responds fairly well. (depending on your sticks, your results may vary) Perhaps I am a little biased when it comes to Pac-Man style games, but I enjoy them and I'm very sure you will enjoy Ladybug. I strongly suggest you find this game for your own collection or play it on an emulator. You will NOT be sorry.

The Video Game Critic
It would be tempting to write off this game as just another Pac-Man clone, but Ladybug has its charm. It's a likeable little maze game with some interesting features. You control a ladybug being pursued around a maze by nasty, evil bugs. The maze and dots look pretty standard, except for the fact that there are turnstiles all over the place that let you dynamically change the layout. These allow you to cut off your enemies and sometimes even isolate them in enclosed spaces. Unlike most maze games, there's no way to turn the tables on your enemies -- you're always on the run. Adding some variety are scattered bonuses and letters you can collect to earn a free bug. There's nothing fancy about the graphics, but the background music is pleasant enough. I found the control to be a bit stiff. I sometimes got caught up on the walls, and my hand started to ache after a while. But other than that, Ladybug is just good clean fun.
