Each level consists of four waves of twelve bugs each; defeat all four waves and the player will move on to a more difficult and faster-paced level.

Play then resumes until the building crumbles to the ground. If six or more bugs get through the open windows, part of the building will be eaten away, and you will have to replay the level. The patterns vary for different colored spiders. Black spiders will move straight up the building, blue spiders wiggle from left to right, red spiders move diagonally, and green spiders zig-zag between windows.

Patch Requirements and Score:

If you help Potsy pitch pots at pests for points totaling 75,000 or more, you’ve been more than a good neighbor. Consider yourself an official Activision Crackpot.

This is definitely my new favorite title.  I had never played this game previously, and while it took me many many tries to get to 75000, I never got bored.  This game is a ton of fun!
