Bugs Fight M4 is a simple action game for 2-4 players. Every player takes a role of one of four distinct bugs. The game is very straightforward. To win the game, you need to eat as many other bugs as possible.
Design, programming in TBXL, sound and graphics by HardCore. Auxiliary programming by Baktra.
In the main menu, you set up parameters of the game: the number of players, the winning score, the number of places where the fifth bug can appear and also one of the four maps.
At the beginning, all players-bugs hatch out from their eggs. After that, the bugs can be moved with joysticks. A fifth bug keeps appearing randomly on screen. The fifth bug is on the lowest level of the food chain. It is imperative to get to that bug as fast as possible, as eating it increases power (P). The power is needed to eat other bugs.
If one bug tries to eat other bug:
- If both have the same power, they both explode and lose power.
- If one bug is stronger, then it gets one point and loses power. The weaker bug explodes.
It is, therefore, necessary to eat everything possible. However, beware of overeating! If someone eats the fifth bug and already has power of 3, he will explode, lose all power and lose one point (if he has some).
The fight ends when one of the players reaches the winning score. When the fight ends, a table with results is displayed showing final standings and scores of the players.
