User guide

The aim of the game is to pop as many bugz as possible by starting a chain reaction of bugz popping.

Each level has a varying amount of available bugz and a set target for the number of bugz you must pop to advance to the next level.

You only get one attempt per level, so choose your initial position wisely, timing is key!

Custom music

It requires MP3 files in /MUSIC/or /PSP/MUSIC/ folder. The MP3 files must be 44.1khz stereo.

D-Pad - Navigate
