It's similar, but not a direct clone.

Any questions? Comments? I'd love to hear them.

Concept is excellent, although I'd like someone to get a handson to see if it's actually fun instead of frustrating. You also need some seriously tight controls.

Yup. So many hours spent playing Lady Bug on my grandparents' old Colecovision.

I'd certainly like to think so.

It's all touchscreen-based controls. The ladybug follows the movements of your finger, and stops moving when you remove your finger. I call it "swipe and hold." I went through five or so versions of the controls, and I think I really nailed it with the current control scheme.

Some initial thoughts...
I like the spinning walls. It adds to the strategy of blocking the other bugs.
But I had a hard time with the "swipe and hold" control, and think I'd prefer a dpad.

Also the submit score sound clip from Oingo Boingo's "Little Girls" should probably go before you get in trouble.

I'll keep the dpad option in mind for updates.

Hmmm, I'm not familiar with the song. All the sound effects should be in the free and clear, either created by me or used from royalty-free/copyright-free/etc sound collections. Is it this song? Which part?
