BugBomber is a Bomberman-esque multiplayer action game where you try to destroy computer bugs and your opponents with bombs, landmines, bolts of energy, and seeker robots in the matrix of a computer's memory. Power-ups randomly appear on the screen and increase your abilities if you get them and each of the four possible players are uniquely drawn.

The only music in BugBomber is a title screen theme which was originally composed by Chris Hülsbeck. The song was converted to a DOS format by Matthias Steinwachs, but the conversion process unfortunately left out large portions of the original instrumentation.

The ROL and BNK files are located in the root install folder. Although the instrument bank is named "STANDARD.BNK" it is not the same as the default AdLib Standard instrument bank. The game comes with it's own external music player, Ad-Lib's Play ROL program and the default SOUND.COM driver. The recording was made using this player and recorded in DOSBox.

If an AdLib compatible card is present, the game will auto detect it and use it for music and sound effects, otherwise, it will play sound effects on the PC Speaker and skip the title music.
