A downloadable game for Windows

Catch as many bullet-bugs as you can during the night and shoot birds during the day!


We start the game during night. We have 2 minutes to catch as many bullet-bugs as possible before the dawn. Fireflies are attracted to bullet-bugs and help us catch them. During the day our goal is to shoot birds but keep in mind we are limited by the ammunition. 

We are using two swarm intelligence algorithms in this game. First one is firefly algorithm that controlls fireflies. The other one is boids algorithm for birds.


  • Use mouse to look around
  • Press [LEFT MOUSE BUTTON]  to throw / shoot
  • Hold [RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON] to zoom camera
  • Press [ESC] to go back to main menu
