      Overall, a great game for kids and adults alike

      This is one of those movie-based games and I for one had to get this game on the Playstation as I loved the movie of the same name when it was originally released. Some are not that good but this game is the exception and is a pretty decent game.

      If you've never seen the movie then the story in the game follows the same plot as the movie itself. There are a few exceptions but generally speaking it does. Every ant's job is to server the grasshoppers and this particular band of grasshoppers is run by the famous Hopper. When the grasshoppers are off flying around somewhere an ant gathers grain to put into the grain pile. After a few months the grasshoppers return to gather their grain while the ants hide in their anthill.

      However, on one occassion an inventive ant named Flik drops his invention on to the grain pile meaning every single piece of grain lands in a puddle so no more grain! They are given a last chance by the grasshoppers and Flik is sent away by the furious ants. He has to search the city for extra bugs to help them collect more grain. The game is made more exciting with Flik having to fight bosses on the levels which he didn't do in the movie.

      There are 15 levels in this game and in each level you can only play as one character whether that be Flik or another one. Most of the levels involve you having to find stuff like in the first one where you have to find the entrance to the anthill.

      In each mission, you'll meet your enemy insects. You don't run away from them like cowards. Which brings me to my title...you throw berries (of different colors) at them! You can throw different kinds of berries: the weakest berry is the green one, the strongest one is the golden berry. You look for power-ups (a floating berry in the air), or grow a berry plant and claim your berries from there (more on that later), to throw different kinds of berries. Berries are unlimited and you don't have to spend time looking for berries!

      The game is a 3D platformer. That means, you can explore the place. The puzzles are very easy in the first level but get harder as you progress through the game. There are also in addition secrets in the game. You can collect letters to make up the name Flik. If you do this you get a free cut-scene that you can view at any time.

      The controls are relatively simple in this game and easy enough to master too. The graphics are nice enough and have enough texture and details to the characters and the backgrounds. As far as the sound goes the music is taken from the movie. It is really good and I liked it alot.

      Overall the gameplay and music are what makes this game decent and I enjoyed playing it alot. I would recommend to anyone who loves family games and puzzle games.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Poorly devised on every level

      I'm a fan of the Pixar film A Bug's Life, and while probably the least well-known of their films, it is a lot of fun and befitting of a video game adaptation given the scale and tone of the film. However, like most Pixar video games, it's really overly simplistic, unbalanced and not substantial enough to be worth the asking price (this cost £40 in 1998!). As with most of these games, the film has been turned into a platformer, and again as with most of them, it's very hit and miss.

      You play Flik, an ant who has to protect his home anthill from various types of invaders, such as bigger bugs, chiefly bees. You can use fruit to repel the baddies, or you can attack them yourself with a fairly limited array of moves. It may appeal to the kiddies for a short period of time, but even as a youngster myself when the game was first released, I got bored of it quite quickly, and upon dusting it off again recently, it became even more apparent how hokey the game's mechanics are. There's not much more to it than some light platforming and very lean combat, and it can't really sustain interest for kids or adults over fifteen missions.

      What's irritating most is the terrible camera system, which isn't adjustable and just lazily follows you around on a strange lag. For instance, if you're jumping, the camera will follow only after you've jumped, meaning you often have to take a "leap of faith", causing you to die and have to restart. It's infuriating now, and I imagine for kids who can't understand why this is happening, it may well reduce them to tears.

      Visually the game was alright for its time, but certainly not great, but it did have some fun songs and sound effects. However, that in no way compensates for frustrating gameplay mechanics that make this one well worth avoiding.

      Save your money & buy yourself an antfarm...much more interesting

      I bought A Bug's Life for the PS1 a few years back now because it was a 'Platinum' game so only cost around £10. It looks like a cute and fun game that doesn't require much thought or stressing so it seemed perfect for a lazy day. I was disappointed to say the least.

      A Bug's Life is an arcade game produced by Disney Pixar based on the characters from the film. The game itself is 3D and has 15 levels (if you can make it past the first 2 that is). On each level you go on a journey as Flik, collecting seed tokens and having berry attacks. You are given free reign to explore the level and discover the exciting little tokens and activities that lie within the area.

      Considering this is a PS1 game produced in 1999, I would say the graphics are average to fairly good. Obviously they don't compare to todays PS3 games, but as you can pick this game up for £5 you do get what you pay for. PS1 games are quite difficult to come by these days, so your best bet is probably Amazon or Ebay, though I wouldn't recommend you buy this particular game.

      A Bug's Life is described as having 'astonishing graphics' and a 'thrilling storyline', thus making it an 'epic adventure of minature proportions'. The aim of the game is primarily to save the ant colony from grasshoppers, find the circus troupe of insects and help Flik 'win the heart of Princess Atta'. Easier said than done my friends. I'm no genius gameplayer, but that shouldn't matter when it's a game aimed at children. The age guide on the back of the game claims it to be suitable from 3+. I'm slightly depressed if this is the case because I must be dumber than some 3 year olds out there as I get stumped after 10 minutes of playing. It's fun to start with, though the controls aren't overly precise or accurate, and the scenes and characters do have a fun appeal. But actually finding your own way through the level can be quite difficult, frustrating and generally quite boring.

      This is a game that got pushed to one side once the frustration kicked in and no one has the effort to want to try it again. If you can get the hang of it and enjoy the cheerful aspects of scenery & disney characters, then it may be worth a play but it's definitely not something you'll be eager to keep playing until completed. If anyone disagrees and has completed all 15 levels then you deserve a medal for perserverance.

        Disadvantages

        This game is taken from the movie A Bug’s Life. When I got the game I hadn’t seen the film so the little phrases were new to me and I found them quite amusing. In the game you play Flik who has to save the Ant colony from the Grasshoppers and you have to find tough bugs to help defend the Ant colony. There are 16 levels to this game all of which are all so different. In between each level you get a clip of the movie, which is cool. It has phrases also from the movie. It’s a 1player game only. Your tough bugs are Slim, Heimlich, Francis, Rosie, Dim, Gypsy, Manny and Tuck & Roll. Your enemies are Grasshopper, mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, spiders, mites, grubs, centipedes, wasp, armour plated beetles, dragonflies, earthworms, daddy long legs. There are 5 islands and on each island you must defeat a boss bug, they are Thumper, Bird, Thud The Horsefly, Molt, Hopper. Once you defeat Hopper you have won the game. You are able to pick things up and carry them around with you. You can throw berries. You can jump, spin, kick, bounce and swing from vines. You collect seeds and the plants that grow from them do amazing things: Make you invincible, help you fly, enhance your health, grow platforms for jumping. You can also collect seed tokens, which let you change the colour of a seed and what kind of plant it grows in to. Berries vary in power. You carry red berries with you all the time, which are the weakest berry. Red berries if you throw these at a grasshopper they laugh but it does make them mad. Blue berries are like a bomb when thrown at a bug as the bug just vanishes in to fin air. Green berries tracks down a target. Purple berries are just like the green berries but it’s more powerful than the green berry and files faster to the target. Grasshoppers aren’t smiling anymore after one of these hit them. Gold ber
        ries are the most powerful berry. It explodes in to fire when thrown. To complete a level you don’t have to get all tokens and destroy all the enemies. You begin with 6 life’s and if you collect 50 seeds in any level that gives you full health. This game is for ages 3+. In all I thought this game was good fun and had excellent graphics and sound effects.

          Wow, lookie here. Here's another one of those movie-based games, that tempt little kiddies to shove their money out of their pockets, and into the developers' pockets. Usually, movie-based games tend to be total flops (like Space Jam the playstation game). They have to be released soon after the movie, the time when the movie is a fad. A Bug's Life, proved me wrong though. Instead of being a total flop, A Bug's Life turned out to be a pretty decent game. Gameplay & Levels There are 15 levels in A Bug's Life. In each level, you can only play one character: Flik. Most of the levels make you find stuff...like the first level, where you have to find the entrance to the anthill. Or the level where you have to find the parts of the mechanical bird. I think the levels could have had more variety, with different things to accomplish. In each mission, you'll meet your enemy insects. You don't run away from them like cowards. Which brings me to my title...you throw berries (of different colors) at them! You can throw different kinds of berries: the weakest berry is the green one, the strongest one is the golden berry. You look for power-ups (a floating berry in the air), or grow a berry plant and claim your berries from there (more on that later), to throw different kinds of berries. Berries are unlimited and you don't have to spend time looking for berries! Another thing I think is cool is the "grow-a-seed" concept of the game. In each level, you will big brown seeds. No, you don't carry these seeds and throw it at your enemies. Instead, you grow plants from them. These plants do different things. The mushroom plant acts like a trampoline. There is also a berry plant, that will grow a berry of a certain color (like a plant that grows only violet berries). You have to change a plant's color (like choosing a plant's seed), and then jumping on the seed to make the plant grow. Ther
          e is also one level where you can fly using a dandelion flower. The wind blows the dandelion flower, that Flik is holding. The game is a 3D platformer. That means, you can explore the place. It's kind of like Spyro the dragon, and definitely not Crash Bandicoot. The puzzles are incredibly easy in the first level, and get harder as you go further in the game. There are also secrets in the game. You can collect an F, then an L, then an I, and then a K to spell Flik. If you spell Flik, (I'm not sure) you get a free cutscene that you can view anytime. Graphics, Animation & the Camera The graphics are good stuff. ONLY good. They are nicely textured and detailed. The problem is, the edges can get a little stiff and pretty sharp...take Flik's antenna. Instead of being a curve, his antenna looks like two straight lines. However, I noticed this with most Playstation games. EVEN Medal of Honor, one of the best games with the best graphics for the PSX, suffers this problem (like the German Shepherd dog which is a bit stiff). A Bug's Life's graphics are pretty neat Playstation graphics, and I would give it an 4/5. Animation can sometimes slow down, especially when you make Flik run. Most of the time it moves fast, but since the environment is so detailed, it can SOMETIMES slow down. Another nice thing about this movie-based game is that it takes actual scenes from the movie (and the scenes in the movie ARE impressive). The camera, on the other hand makes me barf (another thing most 3D platform games suffer from). You play from a third-person view, so you see Flik's back. When you turn around, sometimes it takes three seconds before the camera can show you Flik's back again. On the other hand, if you just move Flik a little, the camera moves too much, and too fast...so you get dizzy. The music is taken from the movie. I like the music a lot. It's fully orchestrated a
          nd crystal clear. The voice acting is also great. In the middle of the level, Flik tends to say things with feelings. Sometimes he could say in a nervous, whining tone..."Are we there yet?" Or he could say in a heroic voice, "To the Riverbed and beyond!" Overall, the gameplay and sound is what A Bug's Life excels in. I enjoyed this game very much. I would Highly Recommend it to the people who love "family games" and puzzle games. For the people who are into thrilling, bloodcurdling, scary games like Resident Evil or hardcore action gamers who like Metal Gear Solid -- sadly, this won't be the game for you. It might be boring for you, because A Bug's life is just full of no-gore puzzles and is meant to be a game for the whole family.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I usually object to paying full price for Playstation games, but this is an exception. This must indicate to my regular readers that if a tightwad like myself always on the lookout for a freebie, is satisfied enough to pay £30 or so for a game, it must be good. And it is good, despite what another members says (as they are entitled to), it is better than Toy Story 2 at least as far as my two sons are concerned, as well as my older daughters (all 3 of them) and myself for that matter. The feel of the game follows that of the film closely, and you might get confused if watching the video and then playing the game, or vice versa, as the quality of the images is so similar. The training mode at the beginning allows you to both practise skills, needed for later to survive the later levels, and also allows you to start with an extra life, also useful. The extra life comes from collecting all 3 tokens, one for 50 seed collected, one for killing all enemies in that level, using the `gold berry` and one for collecting all the letters of FLIK's name. There are 15 levels (from memory, confirmed at the back of the excellent booklet) and comprise 5 `lands` that Flik has to journey through: - Ant Island, Leaving Ant Island, Little Bug Big City, Return to Ant Island and finally Grasshopper War. Rather than spoil the game and detail every move, trick and pitfall to avoid, I will just state the bits that stick in my mind after a rest of 3 months from it. The first level is useful for practising your skills that are needed later on in order to survive the game. It also gives an added life to start the second level with, so long as you collect all 3 tokens. The second and third levels are in the tunnels and if claustrophobic, the darkened view may cause some to just want to get out as soon as possible to the 4th level, Escape from Ant Island. This in itself has an ominous feel to it, partly due to
            the continuing sound of the bird, screeching overhead as it flaps around above you. The music also adds to a sense of dread and felt sombre (to me if no one else). The escape involves flying over a canyon on a dandelion seed head, using what I call “helicopter plants” to re-energise your flight. Otherwise the seeds will lose height, and as soon as Flik touches the ground the bird gets him (to rather disturbing cries of NO, OH NO NO NO…). Bug city was a nightmare to get out of, Return to Ant Island did not register that much except for the TIN CAN, which got me stuck for ages, and beat all of us, even my older daughters for a very long time. Having finally got to Grasshopper wars, the best bit was level 15 climbing up the cliff face to get Hopper near the bird in order that it noticed him and fed him to the chicks. Quite a challenge. My older son often asks to go back on the game, and it is always a pleasure to repeat old triumphs, or see something new that was missed last time the game was played. We still have not got all the tokens on each level that are possible, nor seen all the video clips from the movie that are a reward for doing well enough. All in all a pleasure to play. The only really annoying thing is the time it takes to reload if you die, what with so many intermediate copyright/logo screens that have to be passed through to get reloaded at the level you died at.

Usually, movie-based games tend to be total flops (like Space Jam the playstation game). They have to be released soon after the movie, the time when the movie is a fad. A Bug's Life, proved me wrong though. Instead of being a total flop, A Bug's Life turned out to be a pretty decent game. The Story A Bug's Life follows the movie's actual plot, with few exceptions to make it a video game. JUST in case you didn't watch the movie, here's an introduction: ~~~~~~~~~ Every ant's job is to serve the grasshoppers, led by the notorious grasshopper called Hopper. The grasshoppers go flying around somewhere in the world; An ant however, gathers a huge (well, huge for THEM) piece of grain, lines up, throws the piece of grain unto the Grain pile, then goes back to gather some more. After a few months, the grasshoppers come flying back to gather their grain, while the ants hide in their anthill. One time though, when the grasshoppers arrive, an inventive ant named Flik (the hero) dropped his *shaking*, motor-driven invention (the harvester) on the grain pile, which every single piece of grain land on a puddle...BAM! No more grain. AFter that, the grasshoppers give them a second chance. The fellow ants get furious, and send Flik away to the City to look for extra bugs to help them (which other ants tried to do but failed to return). ~~~~~~~~~~ The exceptions I was talking about, included fighting bosses that Flik never fought in the movie. They did that to make the game more exciting, with more levels. Gameplay & Levels There are 15 levels in A Bug's Life. In each level, you can only play one character: Flik. Most of the levels make you find stuff...like the first level, where you have to find the entrance to the a
              nthill. Or the level where you have to find the parts of the mechanical bird. I think the levels could have had more variety, with different things to accomplish.

              Disadvantages

              Developed by UK-based Travellers Tales, the same team responsible for the recent Psygnosis platformer Rascal, A Bug's Life centers on the exploits of an ant named Flik and his mission to defend his anthill from an army of marauding grasshoppers. Using such resources as fruit (which can be thrown) and special moves (such as the butt-smash), Flik must fight his way through 15 levels of baddies in order to send them packing. Filled with all sorts of flora and fauna, each environment is entirely 3D and boasts a high amount of detail. In addition to the requisite plants and rocks, there are everyday garden objects to hide behind; some which can be destroyed and others that'll require some clever thinking to tackle. Exploration elements also come into play, as Flik must seek out and enlist the aid of several other characters throughout his adventure. Rest assured that there'll also be plenty of puzzle solving gameplay thrown in for good measure.

              You play flick and the plot is basically the same as the film which if you haven't seen is this. The ant flick goes out to look for help to save the rest of his colony from the evil grass hoppers. The control system is poor and without the use of the analogue controler you have to stop each time you turn like in most 3D games on the playstation. The graphics on the game aren't to bad although there are a number of glitches and it can get a bit pixelly. You roam around the land looking for objects and killing any baddies such as the grasshoppers or spiders which you regulary come across, zzzzzz. The game is fairly easy to complete as it is aimed at a young audience. Little effort has gone into this game but I'm sure it will make big bucks due to the name. Please for your own sake don't buy this game

              Disadvantages

              A BUG'S LIFE the second animated movie out of Hollywood's doors come out onto playstation, A Bug's Life came from the same talented minds of the makers of Toy Story. It's about an ant called Flick that gets up to all kinds of trouble as he leaves the anthill to find other bugs to do battle with the evil grasshoppers. Why, it sounds like the perfect movie to turn into a videogame as well! What a surprise.... With a whole movies worth of state of the art computer animation to plunder you'd expect the game to look pretty special. Well, the fans of the film will reconise the characters and locations, and clips of the movies get awarded for completing a task and some get played between levels. It's a pity that it's all let down by sluggish controls and a camera that takes its own time to get into position. This results in confusion, irritation and a slight sea-sick feeling as the scenery spins around. By level 8 I was so annoyed by the camera angles and controls I was ready to put it down there and then. And to tell the truth, I was getting bored. If you're a fan of Flick and friends then you might give it the painful effort needed to complete the game. It's a 3D platformer, basicly. Nothing new. Get from here to there and make a few detours on the way to collect this and than. It's a predictable but pleasent movie tie-in. But throw in some inaccurate collision detection, you can fall through platforms and get attacked by enemies which seem miles away, then mix in some sudden death moments asnd then it slips down from "passable entertainment" to a " sloppy, irritating and wasted opportunity". Rather annoying. Jolly music, taken from the movie, mixed in with clips of speech to liven up the broth. You'd think with over 90 miniutes of movie sounds to play with, you think you'd get more than the same phrases repeated over and over again. Sadly, this is what happens here. Very ann
              oying!

              A Bugs Life is another Disney game to make its way onto the Playstation format, the game is obviously aimed at younger children, and as such has limited appeal to the more experienced game player. The graphics and gameplay are both of the high standards you expect from a disney game. The game itself doesn't have very many levels, so lacks variety, and what levels there are aren't too difficult. So this game is ideal for chidren under 7 years, anyone else would find it a mayor disappointment

              You usually, as a gamer, turn your nose up at games released just after a film, but Disney have provided a very playable quality title here. The FMV sequences are straight from the movie, the plot is the same, but every level plays slightly differently to the last, ensuring a long lifetime for this one. You play Flik the ant trying to round up his Circus buddies to take on the Grasshoppers, and my kids (6 and 7yrs) loved it, when I let them have a go that is. A must buy for the children, but you will love this game to. Go get it.

              Based upon the film this game in my opinion is aimed at the younger game player. A type of 3d platform game with some ok graphics and some nice sound. The levels are quite straight-forward and there are some interesting puzzles to be solved my daughter liked it anyway. It was quite a challenge for her but while I was watching I found the speech a bit repetitive. You can buy this quite cheap especially second hand. I would not recommend you buy this unless you want to keep the kids quiet

              Good family game about flik the ant and his journey to rid the island of the grass hoppers. Good game to play as a family my six year old had no problems playing it. While completing different levels of the game you can collect bonus film clips. Easy game to control and can be puzzling at times, although expert players may find it to easy. We thought it was value for money as it was a game we could all enjoy doing different bits of

                I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. Controlling Flik was made easier by the training level at the very beginning of the game. It is well worth taking your time with this level to really get used to all the controls and work out exactly what you can do with each of the different plant seeds and when you should use them to get the best results to solve each puzzle. Although I would say the game is mainly for younger children, older children and even adults will certainly get plenty of fun from it. It can, in fact, be fairly difficult at times, especially if you try to fully complete every level and achieve 100% scores. If you manage to do this you are rewarded with clips from the film - brilliant. My youngest daughter enjoys just watching all the movie clips so it was down to me to achieve "perfect" scores for her to see all of them!
