Welcome to Bug on a Wire. With this game you can test your response time, your reflexes and your strategy; just how quick are your fingers? The object of the game is to run along the telephone pole wires (you are the bug by the way) and try not to get eaten by the birds that are just sitting around waiting for a quick lunch; you!
When you start the game you will notice that you are the little green bug running along the wires. You do not have to do anything to get going as once the game starts you will already be running along the wires. As you go along you will start to see birds hanging out; you want to avoid these at all costs or you will become their next meal and the game will be over.
There are four wires that you have access to so you can choose which wire or wires you want to run on. To maneuver your bug you will need to use the arrow keys on your keyboard. To jump over a bug, click on the up arrow. This can be tricky as you will need to make sure you jump at just the right time so that you are jumping over the bird and not actually into its waiting beak! It is also difficult to jump when you have two or more birds in a row in front of you so in that case you might want to jump over to the next wire. To jump between wires, just click on the left and right arrow keys to switch between the wires and avoid the birds. The further you go along in the game, the more the birds will appear to try and get you.
Quick moving and knowing when you should jump over or a bird or switch to a new wire is important in making sure you survive. Test your skills and see how long you can survive before you become a lucky birdís tasty snack.
