Bug Bounce Released For iPhone
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Cocoa Touch Games has released Bug Bounce for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch. The arcade family game puts players in the role of a blue bird who must attempt to avoid the enemy bugs that spawn and bounce around the screen. Players control the bird with a fingertip, attempting to keep the beleaguered avian away from the swarming bugs.

More About Bug Bounce:

The gameplay starts out slow but becomes frantic—fast. You control a little blue bird with your fingertip, and move him around the screen so it doesn't touch any of the ever-increasing bugs that appear. The player has three "lives" of 100 points each, and each of the enemy bugs moves at different speeds and will reduce the player's points at a different rate. Players will want to avoid the grey spider ... at all costs.

A player's score in Bug Bounce is determined by how long they stay alive through the seasons. At the end of game a score is saved locally and can also be submitted to the Bug Bounce online server (WiFi or cellular connection required) where your score will be added to the ranks of other players around the world. You can review your own scores, and those of the top 100 players around the world, with the click of a button.

The producer and creative director for Bug Bounce was Cocoa Touch Games founder David Janik-Jones. The game was programmed by the brilliant Jedd Haberstro, with the delightful bug and player icons created by Sam Lamont.

Cocoa Touch Games was founded in 2008, and our goal is to create "fun, simple, joyful" games for the iPhone and iPod touch. The games we create feature simple, addictive and rewarding gameplay, online high scores, delightful sounds and music, beautiful artwork and style, and a great price. Cocoa Touch Games have another five game titles coming soon including: Garden Marbles (our next title, due in August), Cloud Girls, Star Tumble, Flick Car and CocoaBot.
Bug Bounce is available now through the iPhone App Store and iTunes for $2.99.
