What do you get when you have different groups of bugs that want to stake a claim in total dominance and make it into a cartoonish strategy game? You get the visually challenged, yet surprisingly decent game called BugKing. This strategy game gives a whole new meaning to the idea of world domination, for the better of course. Playing as a sect of insects, users will need to go up against swarm of itty bitty competitors. You’ll have your home base and will try to conquer other neutral territories in a level— once you conquer all the territories, you pass the level. Believe me— the premise is simple, but the execution is difficult. Users will need to build up their home base and then expand their expanding army to the other territories, which is done by swiping your finger in order to literally draw out a path for the reinforcements to follow. While you’re doing that, you’re competitors will have the same idea in mind, so you’ll need to not only build up your army— but you’ll need to get to the neutral territories first, while simultaneously taking over your enemies’ home base. The best part is while the controls can be at times unresponsive when it comes to where you want to direct your troops, there’s plenty of gameplay to keep casual gamers interested as there are 48 levels of gameplay at your disposal.
The game is available in the Play Store now for all Android 2.0+ devices for the price of free. Keep in mind however— the free version has an unacceptable number of ads and banners within the game, so there’s also paid (and more importantly— ad-free) version of the game available for a reasonable price of $1.62. It’s definitely not too bad of a way to release your inner desires of you know— wanting to be the top bug on earth.
