A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

A Bug's Trip Redux is an extended version of A Bug's Lynx, edited by Songbird in the Redux collection :

A Bug’s Trip Redux – Songbird Productions

It features the same levels, with improved gameplay, new songs.

If you already know A Bug's Lynx and want to give a try to new gameplay before buying at Songbird, this demo release is for you. It features levels n° 2, 12, 22, 32 & 42 from the game, and let you test the new control scheme.

In A Bug’s Trip Redux, you play a young butterfly during its first year of life, exploring 40 gardens through the 4 seasons.

Many traps await you, including other bugs lurking in the garden trying to catch you.

Be wise and use all the gardens features and traps to your benefit. In order to go to the next garden, you must collect all the scattered pills. Collect flowers to earn more points, and enjoy life – a butterfly’s life is so short…

The game cartridge saves your progress. Selection of the starting season is available once you have unlocked the corresponding season while playing. 


During Spring, the gardens are full of life. You’ll soon discover the gardeners had a wonderful idea – they installed rotating doors everywhere. 

You can use these mechanisms, but the bugs chasing you cannot. So, exploit the garden layouts for your profit – to hide yourself or to isolate nasty bugs.

In some gardens, gardeners (who were probably hardcore retrogamers) put some nice exits, allowing you to travel from one side of the garden to the other. The bugs cannot follow you through these.


In Summer, the sun is blazing hot. Bushes will offer you a welcomed shadow and protection. Bugs will not dare to follow you under the bushes.

So they offer you some rest, or an entrance to quieter zones.


In Autumn, spiders come out to weave their webs.  Fortunately, you will not have to encounter these scary creatures, but their webs will slow you down, while they will have no effect on other bugs.


In Winter, the cold sets in and ice forms on the paths of the gardens. As a butterfly, it won’t affect you, but crawling bugs will slide over ice and become much faster.

Fortunately, once they start to slide, they cannot change direction and slide until the end of the ice, allowing you to dodge them if an exit is avalaible

*Very* cool game! My only criticism is that it feels particularly slow and sluggish. If it could could be sped up to LadyBug speed (like John's original 2600 version), or nearly as fast, I would definitely buy this and even give my dad a Lynx and a copy of it, so that he could play (his favorite arcade and ColecoVision game was Lady Bug)

Excellent! Love that you made a demo of it so people can get an idea before buying. The ROM can be played here - https://atarigamer.com/lynx/play/ABugsTripREDUXDemo/497355921?r=0

Currently just throws an error when booting the ROM.

It does that sometimes when too many people try to use the emulator at once. Try it again at a later point - I just tried it then and it worked...
