Description from the packaging.

The flight-sim with an attitude.
Fly like a Hornet, spit like a Cobra, dogfight like a Tomcat.

Banzai Bug, the most aerobatic pest in the insect world, is trapped inside an exterminator's house! While getting the lay of the land, Banzai Bug meets up with a revolutionary band of insects who convince him to use his incredible flying skills to help overthrow the human occupants. His job is to collect key ingredients for an anti-human weapon make from the most disgusting household debris imaginable. Your job is to keep Banzai powered-up and strong and you fly him through the Exterminator's traps in this insect house of horrors:

Command a kitchen bombing run.
Avoid clouds of toxic bugspray while bombing Mom's hair to drive her out of the kitchen.

Lead a living room escort mission.
Clear the living room skies above the napping Exterminator so escort bugs can collect key items for the revolution.

Buzz to a bedroom rescue.
Save Albert, a key member of the bug revolution, from the wing-plucking clutches of the Exterminator's son.

Banzai Bug delivers all of the challenges and aerial action of traditional flight-sims without the complicated manuals, instrument panels and calculations. As a result, you spend more time flying, shooting, and dogfighting, and less time reading about how to do it. Banzai Bug features real-time rendered 3-D settings, unlimited freedom of flight, comical animated sequences, challenging missions, and a wisecracking superhero for hours of highflying fun.
