Panda vs Bugs
Panda vs Bugs FREE by TechSoft Ventures
Bugs climb the trees all the time. Bugs try to sting the Lovely Panda. They appear from nowhere with the only aim – to hurt. But our Panda is not a weakling! Our Panda is a true warrior! Panda vs Bugs is free and available for most BlackBerry smartphones.

The principles of the game are the following:

  • Panda can try to escape from bugs, it can move from tree to tree and from one side of the trunk to another.  If it is above the insects a player can make it slide down and kill the bugs with Panda’s bottom.
  • A player should keep in mind that the number of bugs and their speed is growing all the time!!!
  • Every killed bug brings a point, but if a bug manages to sting Panda, it will fall down from a tree and a player will lose one life.
