This article reports on the winners of the uDevGames annual gaming contest participated by developers utilizing the Macintosh computer, as of May 2005. Of the year's contenders, Jonathan Czeck's Bug Thug is a favorite of many developers. The idea is to quite simple: players corralled some bugs and must keep them in their pen by pinching them if they get near the edge. Charles Goran's ShineBug is the year's overall winner. In this three-dimensional action game, players must keep up with the bugs by snatching bubbles of moonshine and cans of pork and beans as they fly to the whiskey still. Along the way, they have to avoid logs and other bugs by swooping and jumping.
