Grubbers is a single-player, turn-based strategy game played on a grid and featuring bugs.
Firstly, let me just say that this game reminds me of being a child. Specifically when the kid down the street - who was in high school - would come over to play. He always brought a stack of Magic: The Gathering cards and told me to play. I was never very good at it - for some reason, but I could see there were rules and important goings-on going on.
Such is my experience with Grubbers. A game which I want to like, but just can't wrap my tiny brain around. Let me tell you the bits I do understand: The graphics are very nice. They are mostly hand drawn and the charm is clearly evident. There are two modes of play, one which ramps up the difficulty and allows for unlockable modes and "cards". And the game obviously has a lot of intricacies for those willing to seek them out.
In "Progressive mode" there are a few challenges to conquer in each level - in order to unlock more levels/extras - such as completing a level using only one bug. You can turn your bugs into resources which allows you to activate more bugs or use modifiers. These make your bugs stronger or the opponents weaker and can include venom, severed limb, predator, camouflage and a whole host of others.
I really wish I could get into this game, but I just can't seem to. I know there are enthusiasts for this sort of thing out there, so this is presented just for you. Please - and I think that you will - enjoy Grubbers.
