Lunch Bug (HTML 5) Game Review
It used to be that you needed Adobe Flash to play some really great web-based games on your browser. Nowadays, Flash is more like an unwanted stepson as HTML 5 has stepped into the limelight. With a modern browser such as Chrome or Firefox, you get to enjoy some really great web-based games. If you were to take a look at the Chrome Web Store, you’ll find some really cool stuff like Airmech, a colourful strategy game featuring robots and tanks.
If stuff like that isn’t your cup of tea, check out Lost Decade Games‘ latest HTML-5 game, Lunch Bug. It’s a unique turn-based puzzle game that is guaranteed to give you an entire Sunday-afternoon’s worth of fun. In Lunch Bug, the goal is to feed berries to a bunch of adorable creatures called lunch bugs. Each turn, the player will place a random piece (be it a berry or a bug) on the board, each piece has unique properties that when placed on the board which will affect other pieces in interesting ways.
Placing a bug on the board will cause him to eat his way (horizontally, diagonally and even vertically) to the next bug, netting you points which are necessary to unlock the subsequent levels for a total of 20 levels. Aside from the levels, there’s an unlockable endless mode. The soundtrack for the game is made by indie game composer Joshua Morse and I must say, its pretty awesome.
Nine Over Ten 9/10 rates Lunch Bug at a 4.5 out of 5. Lunch Bug can be played on any modern desktop browser AND mobile browsers such as Mobile Safari and the Android browser. It is also available on Pokki and the Google Chrome Web Store. Check out the game over here: http://www.lunchbug.com
