BUG CITY by Dahlov Ipcar


Email this review


Papa bug is a daddy longlegs who works with carpenter ants building bug houses; Mama of course is a ladybug, busy making up the bedbugs and sweeping the carpet beetle. No doubt some will find the game amusing, but as Ipcar comes up with nothing but endless variations on the same flyweight idea, we were reaching for the Raid long before Bug City's busy, crassly colored population finished taking their pill bugs, reading the latest bookworms, shopping for clothes moths, eating French fried potato bugs and watching the soldier ants on parade in the month of June bug.
