The Bug Butcher Thumb


The Bug Butcher is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot'em up game where peril comes from above. The core mechanics hold old ties from the classic arcade game “Super Pang” where you shoot vertically, but with modern day twists. You are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator who has a knack for decimating bugs.

Ravenous swarms and ferocious waves of bugs of every size will attempt to kill you, but luckily there will be weapon and health pick-ups to aid Harry on his quest. Fierce reflexes are mandatory for survival, but Harry's brutal power-ups will let the guts fly and make the larva cry! If you love games with humor, perfect platforming, grotesquely cute art, nightmarish bosses, and real personality then The Bug Butcher will suit your fancy.


  • Chaotic, fast paced action shooting inspired by classic arcade games
  • Play solo or in local co-op
  • 30 levels and 5 Merciless boss fights crammed with relentless waves of bugs
  • Online leaderboards and 3 difficulty modes offer the ultimate challenge
  • Upgradeable Weapons and Power-ups to make any trigger happy player smile
  • Handcrafted 2D graphics with explosion animations galore
