NSFB: Not Safe For Bugs! is a turn-based action strategy game! As the bugs, you're landing on an unexplored planet to bring life back to its dead soil. But watch out! Evil lizard aliens lurk on the surface and they will stop at nothing to destroy the outsiders. This planet is NOT SAFE FOR BUGS!

Featuring artwork by Val, music by caseJackal, and code by Emerson!

Controls: Click on the patch of grass you want to move your bug to. You can only move your bug after it has been attacked by an enemy. Moving to a new spot lets you heal and gain a better position, but watch out! If a lizard steps on green soil, it dies. You can heal it back by killing a lizard on it.

This was wonderful!!!!!!! beautiful, beautiful art, sounds, music. I enjoyed it all the way through. This was amazingly polished for a jam game! Thanks for making it!!


Also do you have a link to the LDJam page? I'd love to rate it!

You're really kind! Thank you so much! We need more ratings so we would absolutely appreciate it. Thank you so much for taking the time to play it and thank you so much for your kind words!



Such a lovely looking game - a cross between turn-based and insects, so right up my street! I'll definitely be trying this later!

The first two levels I didn't get max score. The third level I got 1540 out of a max possible 1440. Level 4 my score was lower again. I still haven't figured out much strategy to this game. I don't know how to predict what the lizards are doing. I don't like this puzzle very much...

The graphics are, of course, gorgeous cute and colorful. The music is lovely, very chill.


I'm going to go back and make sure I'm calculating the scores correctly. The goal is to finish the level with the maximum green spaces possible and with all your bugs alive. Sorry you didn't like it but thanks for playing!
