-Torment the bug by dragging it around or if you are feeling nice, give it a quick death by tapping
-10 challenging stages with specific tasks to complete

Intriguing... yet slightly disturbing? I'm guessing your the dev. I'd advise you add a link and screenshots.

Edit: Ol' breakfast got the link covered.

Yeah, that's Artificial Life. I just played the game, and yes ... it's slightly disturbing. Challenging though, it's not just a single-screen tap-and-kill bug squisher. We've seen those before. You have to scroll around to find the scurrying little bastards, preferably within the bonus objective's time limit (but definitely the game time limit), and then tap (repeatedly), drag, or multi-touch to, um ... dissect. Piece. by. piece. Big roaches, baby roaches, grubs...

Pulling wings off flies? Psh. How 'bout the wings, legs, and eventually, the abdomen?

And the buggers are fast and react pretty much like roaches do when startled or touched, so it's not so simple a task killing them. Just like real life in a Jersey tenement.

No, it isn't -- but don't let that stop anyone from petitioning for a Mythbusters game.

I'm digging the game so far.

The roaches look really realistic and the game has more objectives and direction then other bug squashing games I've played.
