The Heroes

Beetle: The last of the Beetle Clan, he is a heavily armored tank which uses large AOE attacks perfect for knocking back and squashing hordes of smaller bugs like fleas and ants. His thick armor allows him to brush off their attacks even when surrounded by 20-30 at once...

Spider: A quick, high damage but vulnerable assassin from the Widow Clan, who has joined the trio of heroes for his own secret reasons. His attacks can devastate single, high HP targets and cut through armor like butter, but are not so great vs masses of smaller enemies where he can easily be overwhelmed.

Ant: One of the few remaining ants not a slave, Ant is an engineer and ranged specialist, using advanced technology and gadgets to set up defenses or fire away at long range. He relies on his skills and equipment perhaps more then the other heroes, and like Spider, can easily be overwhelmed if not managed carefully.


As always, questions and feedback is much appreciated


Ant is geared up and ready to rock. A streak of electricity shoots out from a nearby Zapper Turret.

3D. We packed a lot of details and unique animations in this game and can't wait to release gameplay screenshots and videos.

We also have managed to drastically improve the graphics from N.Y.Z while keeping the potential for a ton of enemies on screen, even running on the old iphone 3G.

Also I definitely want to point out that this is not a typical dual stick shooter... in our eyes its just a familiar control scheme that just works. The game itself has so much more to it then typical shooters...

I just hope the animation of that big green slime monster is better in the game then in that trailer.

Haha, that's a stylized slug... and you try moving when you're just a giant blob with no legs... I'm sure you'd look awkward too They're actually primarily a long ranged unit in the game though.
