DoodleBugs is out!

Flick your finger to shoot the DoodleBugs that are trying to eat you in this frantic action shooter.

The DoodelBugz are back, and boy are they angry! Someone said they
were boring, and now they've come to take revenge - and they'll get it
this time. Oh yes. One of them said they called all their friends,
too. Here's what the DoodelBugz said - "Ok, that's it. We brought
our bug friend. Or is he an amoeba? We can't tell, we have bug

Do you have what it takes to subvert the oncoming DoodleBug swarm?!?!?

--New in version 1.0.3------
Four different difficulty levels - look out for the lightning fast doodlebugs!
Added the "amoeba" doodlebug.
Various minor bug fixes

Laugh with delight as you shoot
and fend off scores of DoodleBugs!

If you're looking for Paper Toss
meets space invaders, this game is for you!


* Fifteen different doodlebugs, including one miniboss!

* Rotate the device to make the candy
arch across the screen for flick
and-forget fun!

* Flick your top score to facebook

* Listen to iPod music while playing

* Drag and hold down your finger to
shoot super candy

DoodleBugs 1.1.0 released

DoodleBugs 1.1.0 is out in the store now, with a lot of exciting new features.
We're really excited about how well DoodleBugs is doing in the store, and we're adding lots of new features to DoodleBugs! Here is what's in 1.1.0:

Added a sub-machine SLIME gun! This gun is accelerometer-based and has crosshairs on the screen. When you pick up stars it switches to rapid fire to wipe out the bugs!
Added shake to pause the game
Added some bug-splat special fx
Fixed bug with never-ending flood
Slowed down some bugs that were insanely hard
Bugs now attack in wave formations
Added a new bug "Rhino"
Added more sound fx

Coming soon in 1.1.1, among other things (including more bugs) is a shotgun. This gun can be wielded alongside the sub-machine slime gun. When you flick your finger it will shoot a flurry of shot in addition to the automatic slime bullets.

Happy gaming!
