The other insects clipped your wings and forced you into exile, and now lie in wait to ambush you. As the Killbug, you use your instincts to dash, double-jump and wall-run your way around this world. Keeping moving is the key and, if possible, getting higher than your prey. Some parts of the map are hard to reach, but there are no barriers apart from mastering the movement to get to where you need to be.
As you progress you learn how your two weapons work together and maximise your height. Your main weapon is your gun which slowly gains more bullets but will soon be empty in a fight. You gain bullets by landing attacks with your sword. That sword attack also lets you dash towards an enemy which can be combined with your double jump to maximise your time in the air, which in turn grants a firepower bonus.
The result is a game that is brutal and bloody, but absent of human enemies. This keeps things gross but also keeps the violence in check. Battle a huge range of bugs with your single weapons and parry to work your way onto the global leaderboards, or compete to knock your friends off the top spot.
The developers highlight that the game includes frequent Violence, Gore and General Mature Content. When bugs are killed there are explosions and splashes of green blood. Larger bugs make squelching sounds when they pop. YOu are using a machine gun and samurai blade throughout the game.
12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to be able to cope with high pressure and quick reactions. Accurate targeting of shots and timing of parries is essential. You also need to manage the waves of enemies do not get stuck in a corner and always maintain your height advantage.
