Customer review - toucharcade forums:
"So I've been busy trying LaserBug. Didn't know what to expect, it is really unique and the use of tilt controls is excellent, in fact the controls in general rock. It is a lot cooler then the screenshots alone show, your bug can jump and shoots a variety of different ways, rapid, tri-shot, etc from power ups. Also, you're not limited to one screen, it's a bit of a platformer and as your guy moves the screen scrolls along. LaserBug offers an impressive amount of action, I'm sure it will come as a surprise to most. Gonna go back to the game now."

Downloading now, I will post my thoughts after I have given it a crack, cheers.

Ok just completed the 7 levels, died a few times, nice little game, reminds me of Super Pang, otherwise known as Buster Bros. I really can't see myself buying it though, perhaps more suited to a younger female audience than my 29 year old male self, kiki...job well done though, the controls are smooth and work nicely, the only thing that bugged me (pun inteneded) was the jumping sound, other than that it runs just fine.
