    From the makers of N.Y.Zombies comes a brand new epic adventure!

    Part endless survival, part castle defense, and part RPG, Bug Heroes is a new blend of action and adventure unlike anything in the App Store! Master three heroes, including a fast and deadly Spider assassin, a heavily armored Beetle, and a machine gun wielding Ant engineer. Build turrets to defend your food stash, explore vast landscapes, scour the environments for food, face off against a variety of enemies, complete side quests, and more!

    Features:
    - Control three heroes, each with different strengths, weaknesses, equipment, and personalities. Instantly switch between them at any time, and lay waste to over 25 enemy types, ranging from tiny fleas to giant snails.
    - Level-up your heroes, increase their skills, and equip them from a list of more than 30 abilities and equipment. Set traps with proximity mines or spider webs, equip special items such as a huge wrench or can-lid shield, and use abilities to slow down time or stampede through enemies.
    - Castle defense elements -- Defend your food stash from hordes of hungry bugs! Build from seven turret types to help you survive, including machine guns, laser pointers, firecrackers, magnifying glasses, and more.
    - Diverse game play -- Explore several unique and vast levels. Gather food to stockpile at your food stash. Accept or decline optional side quests. Focus on strong heroes, strong defenses, or a balance between the two. Spend time leveling up one hero or split the experience between all three. Play how you want!
    - Multiple profiles and game saves, tons of achievements, and online leaderboards for massive replayability!

    In short, this is the first superb new iOS game of the new year.

    Featuring multiple upgradeable characters that you can switch to on-the-fly (pun intended), a wide variety of enemy types, terrific controls, and multiple game modes, this is one polished offering that delivers the goods.

    I really enjoyed Bug Heroes. It's addictive, has tons of content, levelable characters with lots of variety and upgrades, lots of different enemy types, and it is one of the best tower-defense/scrolling shooters I've played on the iPhone.

    With each mode spanning four levels, I can't recommend Bug Heroes enough due to its amazing replay value. If you enjoy dual stick shooters and have a soft spot for tower defense or RPG's, you'll absilutely love Bug Heroes.

    A clever castle defence and twin-stick shooter combination, Bug Heroes has the fortitude of a cockroach to withstand the nuclear blast of criticism and earn a solid recommendation.

    Bug Heroes is an original blend of RTS, shooter and RPG that, despite how strange it could seems, actually works. Not very interesting in terms of story and setting, the deep gameplay make this game a good choice for the expert player.

    Bug Heroes should be commended for its expert juggling act. In keeping intense action, strategy and RPG elements in the air simultaneously, developer Foursaken Media must have six arms of its own.
