How come the icon says Jungle Bug and the Title says Jungler Bug?

Because it was already released as Jungle Bugs.

C'mon devs, you couldn't just update the original with some innovative new twists but just try to shovel out the same game again with a new name that not only makes no sense, but you were too cheap to even update your title screen with the new name?

FAIL!

This has been done before by many a dev who didn't think their game got the notice it should have and, desperate to get into something like New and Noteworthy, thinks they could just slip the exact same game out again and THIS TIME get more attention.

While it might get them a couple of sales, those who have seen the game before as well as anybody realizing the game's nonsensical name doesn't even match the title screen, it garners them far more bad publicity than it is worth in the long run (IMHO).

Hi guys,

Jungle bug rock and roll took us 2 months to develop and so far has only made 49 that's pretty poor for a decent game wouldn't you say.

We decided to rename and re release to at least try and break even.

Hope you all understand.

The name is a mistake it should be Jungle Bug (sorry i was submitting a few games that day and had a very long day).

Regards,

Darren.

It IS a good game but to resubmit the exact same game as new feels sooo scammy.
