Back in 2011, Foursaken Media released a little game called Bug Heroes that we quite enjoyed. Now, they are back with the sequel, Bug Heroes 2, which will hit the App Store on February 20th.
The upcoming Bug Heroes 2 is set against the backdrop of a regular family home. When the residents of the house go out each day, their creepy-crawly roommates go to war.
Offering a cast of 25 different insect infantry, the game lets you to choose a two-man squad to take into combat. Picking from units such as cockroach knights, waterbug pirates, and ant engineers, you must balance their strengths and weakness in combat to securing victory.
Bug Heroes 2 will also offer co-op and competitive play, seemingly in an effort to generate a multiplayer battle arena vibe.
As the above video shows, the chunky art style of the oversized invertebrates looks particularly good against the blow-up domestic backgrounds.
Bug Heroes 2‘s new third-person camera is also a nice change from the series’ previous overhead perspective.
We don’t know how much Bug Heroes 2 will cost when it lands on the App Store next month, but we’ll be sure to keep our eye on the hill till a price is revealed.
