The Bug ButcherThe Bug Butcher

The Bug Butcher is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot'em up game where peril comes from above. The core mechanics hold old ties from classic arcade games where you shoot vertically, but with modern day twists. You are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator who has a knack for decimating bugs.

Ravenous swarms and ferocious waves of bugs of every size will attempt to kill you, but luckily there will be weapon and health pick-ups to aid Harry on his quest. Fierce reflexes are mandatory for survival, but Harry's brutal power-ups will let the guts fly and make the larva cry! If you love games with humor, perfect platforming, grotesquely cute art, nightmarish bosses, and real personality then The Bug Butcher will suit your fancy.

The Bug Butcher is developed by 2Awesome Studio and Awfully Nice Studios. Published in Japan by Eastasiasoft Limited.
