Ottawa, Canada – Buzz Attack is a game of quick reflex screen tapping merged with side-scrolling action and an absurd story.

Nearly one year ago indie developer Ernest Szoka started experimenting with a physics game engine to create his first mobile game. On a whim he decided to make a simple rag-doll physics arm that would smack a hovering object (in this case a fly) every time it got close. Amused by his simple creation he decided to turn it into a game, where a player controlling the main protagonist ‘Gus’ would walk around and hit mutant flies emanating from a trash can in the park. Buzz Attack was born!

Highlights in Buzz Attack include buying flyswatters, bug spray and other items from a suspicious man wearing a trenchcoat in the park as well as the ability to dynamically switch the game view into portrait or landscape. Unlike traditional side-scrolling games for touch screen devices, Buzz Attack has no controller buttons to clog up screen space and instead relies on intuitive tap and finger placement to control the character. Leaderboards, achievements and 4 difficulty modes round out the game.
