Another Pac-Man variant. Why a ladybug eats all those veggies is beyond me. They're carnivorous.

Screen Shots

Actually, Lady Bug is one of the better Coleco cartridges for Intellivision. Sure, that might not be saying a whole lot, but the sound isn't too bad, and the graphics are decent. It's another Pac-Man clone, with this game's gimmick being the rotating walls that change the shape of the maze. Although I'm not familiar with the arcade game, it is pleasing to see that they did a reasonably good job of preserving the prizes in each maze, and the graphics on them aren't too bad. I still haven't figured out what a ladybug is doing eating all those vegetables, though. Their diet is primarily aphids, so the 'enemy' in this game could well be their meal! Best Score: 48960 (Level 11 - Potato) [Start: Skill Level 1]

Title Screen Despite its lame title screen, Lady Bug isn't all that bad.
Game Selection Typically sparse Coleco game startup screen. Even their own ColecoVision games followed this pattern.
Level Preview Prior to each level of the game, you get a preview, showing which goodie will appear in the maze.
Are Those Aphids I'm Munching? Actually a pretty nicely done game.
