There are total of eight bugs in the game. Player starts with a beetle, the weakest bug, but can be upgraded to a faster and a higher performance bugs. To do this, races must be won and earnings collected. Bugs are won and earned in this order: beetle (given), ladybug, cockroach, grasshopper, hornet, praying mantis, scorpion, and blackwidow. When starting with weaker bugs, one must use tactics or strategies to win the races. The latter four are fast, have better performance wheels, and tougher armor. Once you acquire one of those, it's matter of seeing how many kills you can get and how fast you can

Took way too long sitting at the "Loading..." screen. Other 3D games load in a reasonable amount of time. Don't waste my time.

Thank you for kind remarks. Here are more list of updates to v1.07.

*Enabled multiplayer feature in the demo.
*Added ARROW key controls for driving and steering. See option/control menu.
*Improved bug (vehicle) dynamics.
*Added palyer directional arrow in the game screen.
*Added world props.
*Lengthened all tracks.
*Added health (apples) in all tracks.
*Added options to shut off music and sound.
*Fixed various bugs.

This version is a big change from v1.06, especially the size of the tracks and the multiplayer feature is fully enabled for the demo.

Most should find this version much more enjoyable.

While this game does have a lot of promise, I think the control needs lots of work. Steering is accomplished with the mouse which in my opinion is far too sensitive. It's too hard to steer your car much less simply driving in a straight line.
I'll continue to monitor this game to see if it develops into a worthy cart racer. It has its bugs, but the potential is there.

Cute idea for a racer but this one of the worst games I have ever seen on the Mac.

Graphics are abysmal, the levels bland and uninspired while the controls are unusable. The dymanics are dreadful as well.

This is published by Garage Games, I dont know if it was done with the Torque engine but I have not been impressed with anything I have seen done with it. Heavily overhyped I suspect like almost anything to do with OS X these days.

In meantime don't bother downloading this game.

To do this, races must be won and earnings collected. Bugs are won and earned in this order: beetle (given), ladybug, cockroach, grasshopper, hornet, praying mantis, scorpion, and blackwidow. When starting with weaker bugs, one must use tactics or strategies to win the races. The latter four are fast, have better performance wheels, and tougher armor. Once you acquire one of those, it's matter of seeing how many kills you can get and how fast you can finish the race. There are also eight unique race tracks in the game. Most unusual are "Ocean Side", where most of the track is laid out under water, and the "Lunar", where 60% gravity of Earth is simulated - once airborne it takes some time to come back down. There are also hazards in the game, such as spitting frogs, dust-devil, falling boulders, and so on. Challenges are different for each track. All tracks contain booster pads and we have placed the boosters close together in two tracks to achieve continuous boost from one to the nex before the boost energy is drained. The speedometer tops out at 180 but that speed is reached rather quickly and the bugs continue to accelerate with every boost. The lower-end bugs are fast but the higher-end bugs are blazing fast. Weapons in the game: "zinger" - a self-guided rockets, and "magno bomb" - actually a levitating mine that will follow your opponents. There are health paks, or wrenches, in the first few levels to get the players going but we omitted them in advanced tracks to makes it more challenging. Recent changes:
