    Lady Bug Description

    You control a Ladybug that moves around a maze eating dots while avoiding poison and pursuing insects. The maze has revolving doors that can be used to thwart the insects. Collect letters to form the word "EXTRA" and receive an extra life or spell "SPECIAL" to earn free credits.


    Game Introduction

    A Pac-Man-style maze game. Collect the dots and avoid the poison while dodging pursuing insects. If an insect hits some poison it dies. The maze has revolving wall sections that turn when you walk into them. Collect bonus dots for an increased score and letters to spell out "EXTRA" for an extra life or "SPECIAL" for an extra credit. The letters change colour and must be collected when they are the same colour as the word being spelled.

    Another old school "mazey" game. Used to be in my corner shop along with Moon Cresta and got hammered every chance we got.

    I always found this game hard, how do you get the bonus in the middle, if I wait for all the bugs to come out, its all over for this little Lady Bug

    We should ask Savage he topped 100,000 but I think he converted to the Darkside

    I'm just going for the blue hearts early to bump the X bonus, not worried about the special as it would be a free game
    Always trying for the yellow EXTRA letters and then flipping doors like madness , sometimes I seem to hold the bugs away and most they are around me like a plague
