Fight Off The Cicadas Online, If Not In Your Backyard
The Martin Agency responds to the East Coast's cicada invasion
Published on Jun 03, 2013
Cicada stories have been invading the US media, as the so-called Brood II Cicadas have emerged after a 17 year cycle on the East Coast. So the Martin Agency has created a little online game called Cicada Invadaz. (The game was the brainchild of creative direcrtor Jordi Martinez, who originally hails from Barcelona and had never seen a cicada before). By clicking on the giant Cicada Invadaz logo at the center of the screen, the game allows you to fight the swarm of pests by double-clicking your mouse over each invader. As they disappear from the screen, a tally at the top will show you how many you've exterminated and allow you to share your score with Facebook friends.
