If a Bugs Life was a strategy game it would probably be like NinjaBee’s third game, Band of Bugs. Since it has grid based combat Band of Bugs falls into the tactical combat genre, but be warned the system isn’t as complex as Tactics Ogre. One of the features which not seen in many tactical combat games is the level editor where you can build your own battlegrounds and share them with through Xbox Live. There is also online play for up to four simultaneous gamers and a story mode about Maal leading a team of bug warriors. Casual tactical combat costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and you can pick it up this Wednesday.
