Reviews for "Butcherbugs"

Triple Threat!

Gameplay, Graphics, and Sound! It has it all...

That formation system blew my mind, essential gameplay for this style of gaming. The game felt right...both the movement and the shots flowed. The difficulty curve felt natural (after every boss the game should get harder...yeah...) It felt as if the game fitted the rhythm of the music and it was just downright fun!

But that formation system...hell yes...

My favorite Game Jam submission so far.

OMG I think you made the best game EVER!!!!!

In only three days you created something I feel is truly Live Arcade download worthy!

I am just STUNNED!

STUNED with sheer AWESOMENESS of a game that pays homage to old school games with added twists for your keyboard.

This is the best game so far!

I couldn't rate it lower...

I was on the verge of a 9 ... but the creativity was simply stellar. Maybe I'm showing my ignorance ... but I'd never seen a shooter like this where formations could be made, and were actually strategically needed in places...

Super fun, and very smooth.

Really good for such a weird theme.

It was challenging and fun as hell.
Love the strategy and action, using the formations.


Nice way to knock over a butcher
