You're a robotic insect, leading a normally happy life in your robotic jungle, when some of your robotic cousins decide to chew through the nearby citadel. Unfortunately for you, they're threatening to chew right through the reactor core! Capture renegade insects to stop their damage, and use them later to perform tasks for you.

One of the error messages inside the program is "Invalid sprite data, bucko!"

The coloring of the sprites of this game (each sprite uses only one color) suggest that it was originally developed for the Spectrum and then ported to other platforms.

Was marketed under Epyx's "Maxx Out!" series.
