Official description

Planet Earth, many years into the future... over intense farming and excessive use of pesticides has caused the destruction of every insect life form, throwing the planets ecological balance into disarray. In a last ditch attempt to rectify the situation a group of scientists have created a race of cybernetic insects. However, an error in their DNA make up caused them to go insane, resulting in vast swarms of maniac killers roaming the planet. The only hope of survival was to create the ultimate killer insect, capable of seeking out and destroying all the mutations. Venus: The Fly Trap.

There are fifty levels in Venus, five levels on each of the ten worlds. Once a level ia completed, the player will reach a bonus level where the aim is to blast as many insects, and collect as many bonuses as possible before your energy is completely drained. You will not lose a life whn the bonus section ends.
