Straight from the silver screen to your Nintendo Game Boy Color comes A Bug's Life, the video game version of the animated film from Disney and Pixar. As the beleaguered ant Flik, your mission is to survive all nine levels of gameplay and save your colony from the evil grasshopper Hopper and his gang. This is a 2D side-view platform game.
You start with six lives, each of which contains three points of health. You lose health every time you're hit by an enemy and gain some back every time you pick up food such as berries and leaves. The berries also make great ammunition.
Following the basic plot of the film, you begin level one by helping Flik create his harvesting machine. That is followed by a bonus round where you race against time to harvest crops. From there you head off to the city to recruit help in the ants' struggle against the grasshoppers, return to Ant Island with the circus bugs and rescue Princess Dot from the sparrow, build and release a fake sparrow, and then lure Hopper to the real bird.
Along the way you score points for successfully completing various actions and earn a password at the end of each level so that you can start your next session where you left off. Finally, you can use the Super Game Boy to play A Bug's Life on the Super NES. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
