Computer Gaming World (CGW)
All the above discussion of terrain, unit movement, and tactical finesse should not deter the gamer looking for a simple good time. BATTLE BUGS is nothing if not an enjoyable game to play. The manual and graphic elements of the game are uniformly hilarious, from the radar display running on a “No Entiendo Lame Boy” to gruff spiders whirling into battle in a Tasmanian-devil-like tornado. BATTLE BUGS manages to achieve that rare fusion, a meaningful tactical game which is funny as well as fun to play. No one will lose their job or spouse to an overdose of BATTLE BUGS playing, but plenty of gamers will have many enjoyable evenings of conquering cheese wedges and slaughtering spiders.
