With a neat graphical style and intuitive controls, BUG HEROES provides a good, fun romp in the world of insect smackdowns. Although the core gameplay may get repetitive after a while, the slate of upgrades and unlockables drives players to keep trudging through and completing new levels. Players can also shake things up by switching their character between the numerous options. The inclusion of awards and achievements also encourages players to become a master battler, and the game's "insectopedia" lets them keep track of the various creatures they have encountered. Although it does include some violent themes and terminology, the game itself is rather lighthearted and is definitely worth checking out for those who can handle those concepts.

Did we miss something on diversity?
