Lightning Bugz Screensaver

1.2.1
04 June 2004

Colorful bug screensaver.

Overview

Every summer evening, rising from the cool grass, or emerging from the trees, comes a swarm of tiny lights. Swirling about, in glowing motion, they search for their mates. They brightly blink in anticipation, hoping their display will bring them their goal.

These magical insects, found mostly in warm, humid climates, are not "flies", but are actually beetles. The male firefly, or lightning bug, uses his bioluminescence to attract a mate. While the female, perched on a nearby tree branch, blinks back her approval.

Lightning Bugz was inspired by these amazing creatures. Although the bioluminescent light produced by actual fireflies range from Green, Yellow, or Orange, I used some creative license and made a Red, and Blue species as well.

I loved version 1.0 -- the sized of the bugs was perfect, especially on a good wallpaper backdrop -- but 1.1 makes them look cartoonish. I guess I'll be sticking with 1.0 until such time as they offer the option to choose the scale of the bugs.

My bad. In my previous post I said there was no scale option... WRONG. It was staring me right in the face. Great screensaver and at 50% scale looks like version 1.0. Cool.

Is v.1.0 still available? I'd like to see it. I'm a BIG firefly fan! Maybe the person who wrote this review will email me a copy? Thanks.
