A bug blimp, like a vehicle so that your heroes could fly around above other bugs? It would go well with a map where you're fighting in the rafters.

Also, what about a hint for the upcoming map? Like the two most common cord or something.

We're keeping all new levels and characters under wraps for the time being...

I think the bug copeter is cooler. And more uhm realistic... I mean, it's much more likeley there's be a toy heli flying arround a room than a toy blimp.

Good job guys!

I'd like to add. Played kitchen normal last night. Made it to 26,
there was major, major slow down. Had so many bugs on screen
the controls were not responsive and I died as a result. Furthermore
I was unable to post my score (a new high for me) as the post button
was blank.

Aside from this, amazingly fun! Loving it, can't wait for more updates.

LOVE this!!! Squadron of flys idea gave me a chuckle and flys or other flying live thing may make more sense than having a helicopter show up. Either way, I like it! Kinda like the Eagle in Angry Birds if you set it so the flying help is sufficient to clear a level.

Oh, are there a set number of enemies on a level so more won't spawn 'till the next level once they are all clear? I've been trying to survive the time period rather than proactively taking out all bugs. I've only played a bit though.

what device were you using? also, were you paying the latest version of Bug Heroes (1.0.1), or the release version (1.0)?

3GS iOS 4.2.1, newest updated Bug Heroes. Must have been over
30 bugs on the screen. Complete slowdown to a freeze. Then the controls
were unresponsive. So I perished. No biggie though, bested my highest
score, then imwas unable to post it as the post button was blank.

Did you close out all backgrounded apps? Also, I've experienced the no post high score button problem, but I think it's because you didn't beat your old high score or don't have internet.
