The customization of your insect is definitely the highlight of the game; you can make your character look cool, though ultimately the upgrading has little effect on the gameplay itself. The combat system, using the stylus exclusively, is fun and intuitive, requiring no use of buttons at all. Sometimes these battle controls are a bit (ahem), buggy; tapping a creatures body part initiates an unintended action from a different limb. Overall, however, the game is fun, simple, and maintains a playful, slightly silly over-the-top tone. For the target audience, this should be satisfying experience that combines fighting, role playing, and adventure.
