About this game
Developer: Noodlecake Studios Inc
Content Rating: Teen
The Bug Butcher is an intense action shooter, wrapped in stylistic 2D art, and smeared with juvenile humor where timing and fierce reflexes are paramount in protecting your fragile squishy body! The gameplay has an extremely simple chore mechanic that is easy to understand, but hard to master. Plus, who doesn’t love a universe where you wield a beefy arsenal of military grade weaponry that lets you slice through bugs like a hot knife through soft, melted butter.

The Bug Butcher is a super fun and refreshing 2-D shooter. It provides a great amount of variety and challenge which somehow makes playing new levels and replaying old ones equally exciting. If you want to feel great about killing bugs, definitely play The Bug Butcher.
The Bug Butcher features wonderfully hand-drawn 2D cartoony graphics which look really good, mixed together with awesome background music, easy to pick-up gameplay mechanics that packs a strong challenge, making for a very enjoyable game. Noodlecake Studios isn’t shy in telling you that you’ll need a powerful device to run this game well, with the controls still needing some work, and in my initial tests, I found a few bugs when exiting the game, and then coming back to it later on.
In the end I kind of wish there was more game here, because said 30 levels can run out really quick if you're marathoning it. That isn't necessarily a knock on The Bug Butcher per se, but it did feel like the developers wanted to give us at least a little more of a taste, like a new theme or boss.
