The insect invasion continues in Bug Heroes 2, out tonight on iPhone and iPad

Multiplayer online battler Bug Heroes 2 is bringing insect warfare back to your touchscreen tonight, when it goes live on the App Store.

Part tower defence, part third-person shooter, this colourful free-to-play sequel puts you in charge of a pair of courageous insects, and tasks you with protecting your base from incoming enemies.

Combat plays out from an over-the-shoulder perspective, allowing a nice view of the action as slice up kamikaze fleas heavily armoured snails. You can also jump between squad members at the touch of a button, and issue orders to your teammate by tapping the environment.

However, in addition the freeform combat, Bug Heroes 2 includes a strong tower defence mechanic. To keep your base safe from invading swarms, you have to erect turrets, and keep your food supplies stocked to keep your insectoid footsoldiers alive.

We've gone hands-on with Bug Heroes 2, and will posting a preview video momentarily. However, if this creepy-crawly caper already has your antennae twitching, you can download it for free from the App Store tonight.
