Hands-on with Plantman, the bug-zapping puzzle platformer

These days, most games set in a post-apocalyptic world revolve around running away from zombies. 

It's refreshing, then, to discover a game set after a catastrophic nuclear event which has you beating a hasty retreat from massive insects instead of the undead.

The game in question is Plantman, a puzzle-packed platformer which casts you as the manager of an oxygen plant. It's your job to maintain the facility, and keep the life-giving flora free of gigantic, mutant aphids.

To do this, you'll need to learn how to lure insects, and then trigger electrified traps to blow these oversized pests into green goo.

Curious as to what that might look like? Just watch our hands-on video below to see Plantman in action.
