I have written blog posts about the design philosophy of Blue Bug Bob:
- On level design in Blue Bug Bob: Mechanics and Theme
- On level design in Blue Bug Bob: Collectibles, Checkpoints and Lifes
Dodge thorns, aggressive bees, fast dragonflies and other enemies and obstacles. Get help by the powerful fireflies to boost your energy and even break through walls. Also don't forget to collect the valuable berries to unlock further levels.
The game innovates the platforming genre with a its unique flight mechanic. Bob can fly freely around the landscape - but only for a very limited amount of time. This fundamentally changes how the player and the environment interact.
This game is a level-based platforming adventure. It combines precise platforming challenges with puzzle aspects. And if you want a challenge try to beat the clock and get extra berries.
