Bug Detective Chrys Liszt is pounding the pavement — with all four legs — trying to solve a murder case in the seedy city of Troi. Backed by her loyal, trigger-happy partner Roachy Caruthers, Liszt will find her answers, one way or another, by zapping the goo out of anything creepy, crawly, or cranky. Weapons at her disposal include nectar cannons, pollinators, nectar blasters, and amberizers, each differing in range, damage, and ammo type. Viewed from a third-person perspective, Insecticide features tongue-in-cheek humor, noir-style atmosphere, and cartoon-like visuals. The 3D shooting sequences take place on the top screen, with radar highlighting nearby enemies and objectives on the touch screen. In between the bug-blasting action, players will engage in investigation sequences structured like traditional adventure games. The stylus is used to talk with characters, present "evidence," interact with objects, and more. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
