Hi everyone!

I have another game for you all! This one is called Lil' Bugger, in which you drop bugs into a little boy's sandbox to make even bigger bugs and score points. It was originally meant for the MiniJam in April, but in my classic fashion, I didn't finish it within the jam's timeline. The theme this time was bugs and the limitation was: You are the bad guy (hence Lil' Baby Bobby's never ending tears)

The game is loosely based on the tabletop strategy game Tiny Towns but much simplified for the sake of being a short little ditty. The music is not great so feel free to play with the sound off!

How to play

  • Select a little bug to place in the sandbox
  • Match the little bugs to the patterns at the top to make big bugs and score points
  • You can match the patterns in any 90 degree rotation (but not mirrored!)
  • The game is over when the box is full

Note: The little bugs come in a "deck" of 15 cards. Only when you run out does the deck get shuffled again and 3 new cards are dealt.

Nice! I like how the matching mechanic works the only thing I would say is add something beyond the first match of bugs maybe after you get all the matches your board is cleared and you use the bigger bugs to match into even bigger bugs

@mr.panda My spouse wanted the same thing! But besides other "bug" fixes, this game is done. Thanks for playing!
