Lady Bug was one of the first offerings of Universal, a company best known for its Mr. Do!’s series of games. The game falls under the “maze genre” with game play similar to Pac-Man, but in this case unique enough to make it stand on its own. The goal is simple: your Lady Bug must eat all of the dots in the maze while avoiding different insects (each round has a different family of insects). Some of the maze’s walls can revolve, allowing the player to better dodge enemy insects.
Among the games other twists are two bonuses that are collected by eating colored letters on the screen (similar to Mr. Do!). If you spell the word “EXTRA”, you’re awarded an extra Lady Bug. Spell the word “SPECIAL” and receive a free credit for another game.
