I don't play it as much anymore, but in Galcon I learned a good trick. If you're in a three person battle don't do anything. They'll think you went offline or whatever and they'll leave you alone. Your ships will multiply faster than anyone elses if you just sit there. When there's you and one guy left just unload on him. It's worked every time.

It's a sleazy way of playing but it's pretty funny.

I am officially re-interested in this game. Wonder if there's anything like that for Nanosaur.

It worked! Holy crap.
Do the exact same thing in Nanosaur as in the Bugdom video.

Bad news is the rumors were true and there's only three levels. At least they're long.

I remember clicking in the corners during gameplay looking for a way to save and suddenly it skipped levels. Now i know why...

During a level in bugdom if you double click (tap) the tob left of the screen it will skip to the next level
