Having studied its habits, we found that the game isn't a Mushiking clone as we'd originally assumed, but a tactical RPG where you command an army of customizable, mechanized insects. Our mouths were agape, monocles falling from our faces when the truth was revealed. Below is a sampling of Insect Wars' creepy crawlers:
- a rifle-mounted praying mantis with buzzsaws -- my god, buzzsaws! -- for arms
- a lightning bug that terrorizes foes with its beam cannon tail
- a heavily-armored, treaded snail (pictured above) which acts as a transport for other units while healing them

It's like taking Advanced Wars, adding customizations, and slapping insects on them. Rad.

I was expecting this to be lame... from what I've seen from the video, it actually looks like it might be pretty good.

That does look fantastic... except for that card in the middle. I don't want a card game. Those suck hard.
