NinjaBee has released two games on the Live Arcade already: Cloning Clyde and the addicting Outpost Kaloki X. This week, the developer come back with the turn-based tactical game Band of Bugs. The game promises gameplay deep enough for the more demanding audience yet inviting enough for casual gamers. That's a tall order, but let's not be downbeat. The feature list is impressive.

Action and adventure in a single-player
campaign story! Follow the adventures of young Maal as he leads an
elite team of bug warriors to protect the kingdom from evil insect

There seems to be a lot of meat here, and if the mechanics hold up to the laundry list of neat features we're in for a treat. The game will go for 800 points ($10). We'll give you a heads up when the game is released.
