I remember this game from the Early Nineties when it was distributed with a Atari Magazine.

It's nice to see an original idea once in a while. Since I played the sequel first, which was just another Zool clone, I simply expected a simpler version of the same thing. Bug Bash 1 and 2 it turns out seem to be almost completely unrelated in the gameplay department. And the first is much better. It sort of reminds me of a cross between Worm Whomper on Intellivision, and Choplifter. Maybe the Choplifter is a stretch, but picking up litter and bringing it to the beginning of a scrolling level to drop it off reminds me of picking up the little Choplifter dudes and bringing them to th helicopter base. Anyway, unlike the cludgy sequel, this is both unique and a blast to play. I liked this game instantly, and plan on playing it more in the future. 3 1/2 thumbs up.

No. Not good at all. Whose idea was it to link ammo and energy together, so you lost energy whether you ran into a bug or shot them? Takes too long to turn around and the "litter collection" idea just reeks of some form of sponsorship....
