Bug! (Bug!: Jump Shite, Fundzukechatte, Pecchanko (バグ！ ジャンプして、ふんづけちゃって、ぺっちゃんこ) in Japan), is a platform video game developed by Realtime Associates and published by Sega for the Sega Saturn and later PC.
Bug! was followed by Bug Too!, released in the following year.
The plot revolves around the title character, Bug, an actor in Hollywood hoping to make his "big break". Players take control shortly after Bug has signed a deal for the lead role in an action film, in which his girlfriend is kidnapped by a black widow spider and he is tasked with rescuing her. The gameplay takes place "on the set" of each scene of the movie, and cutscenes between levels show Bug moving from one set to the next.
Bug! is a "2.5D" platform game, which for the most part is played like a traditional side-scrolling title. At various points in the level, Bug is allowed to travel towards or away from the camera, adding a third dimension in the process, however players are always confined to corridors, meaning gameplay is not as "open" as future 3D platformers, for example, Super Mario 64. Though levels are built using 3D geometry, the objects in a level are represented by 2D sprites.
Similar to many platformers, Bug can defeat enemies by jumping and landing on their heads. At certain points in the game Bug is able to walk up vertical surfaces and even upside down. Players can pick up two powerups to give Bug new forms of attack - one gives him an electric attack which was best used in close-quarters while another gives him a poisonous spitting attack for ranged combat.
Each stage has three "scenes" (levels) and a boss ("finale). Also at certain points in the game bonus stages can be activated where certain tasks must be achieved (for example, one stage has Bug race against Sega's mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog).
The Sega Saturn version makes use of the Saturn's internal battery back-up to save progress. The game will save when an entire world is cleared.
