  1. Great greaphics, good sound, creative level design, tons of extra features, and a perfectly paced ramp-up of difficulty. [Dec 2002, p.130]
  2. Short, but completing the game 100% was a challenge and the arcade mode was good as well.
  3. As for the controls, the camera itself caused some goof ups here and there.
  4. A very bland and unremarkable game plagued by poor control and design.
  5. No fun. For one, its concept is utterly ridiculous and it might more exciting to collect bugs than to play as one. Secondly, the gameplay is very tedious and is not fun at all because of the grid-like pattern the stages are arranged in.
  6. 45
    As much as I wanted to love Zapper, I just couldn't allow myself to become addicted to any of the fun elements it had to offer.
  7. It’s gameplay is simplistic while still offering challenges and rewards that will keep kids interested beyond the Story mode. [Score for Kids = 80]
