The Venus the Flytrap wiki last edited by fisk0 on 03/28/16 06:06AM View full history


Venus the Flytrap is a 1990 side-scrolling shooter-platformer from Core Design and Gremlin Graphics. The player, as the eponymous robot insect, moves across a number of stages earning power-ups and destroying rival cybernetic bugs.

Venus can use its wings to make large jumps from platform to platform, and occasionally will pass over a tile that reverses gravity and allows them to walk along the ceiling (like in the NES game Metal Storm). The player can find weapon power-ups, score boosts and, occasionally, instant-death traps by defeating enemies and shooting the pellets they leave behind.
