    Hi Guys:

    At long last the third game in the "Bugs" series is here, and it's called Banana Bugs!

    http://www.popcap.com/games/bananabugs

    You can also get it along with the other two bugs games from the popcap homepage :)


    We went much more on the cuter side this time, with the main character being a monkey instead of a shooter.

    Features:

    -Native 1920x1200 support, if your desktop resolution is lower than that, it scales accordingly.

    -A full meta game where you build a Monkeytown and earn upgrades and wild new powerups.

    -Fantastic art and animation from Jim, as always :)

    Have fun!

    Hello, can't wait to play it. What's a stage "installing program prerequisites"?

    Hi Mike,

    Just the other day I was wondering what you are up to these days. :)

    Really nice game... I think you've really taken the "bugs" game to the limit with this one. I like the little gameplay adjustments/enhancements, and especially how the Monkey Village game ties in with the main game. I think that worked out quite well.

    Above all, Jim outdid himself with the visuals. Really nice!

    Good luck with the launch.
    Patrick

    Played it, think the game is far too basic, controls weren't polished since Water Bugs and lacks wow factor by modern PopCap standards.

    Win7 x64
    RAM: 3.00 GB
    Processor: Dual Core 2.8 Ghz
    DirectX 11
    Integrated GeForce Video (Dx9 gen)

    This machine is less than 3 weeks old and the game runs too slowly when the 'leaves' effects come on for the dialog borders and the monkey head. It runs faster in software mode, but looks terrible.

    Great! Now that you've scratched that itch, how about another Bugatron? :)
