Based on the Disney/Pixar 3D animated film, you must guide Flik as he sets out to find a group of warrior insects to help his colony of ants to fight off the hungry grasshoppers.
Unlike the other versions of this game, the GBC version is a 2D side-scroller. You must guide Flik in finding parts for his inventions. Along the way, you must avoid other enemy insects, including the grasshoppers, or hit them with berries.
A bootleg/pirate video game named A Bug's Life was released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, which appeared to be developed in China. The gameplay closely matches the Game Boy Colour version except the game featured only 4 levels and includes voice samples from the Playstation version ("Nice one!" "Oh Yeah!")
