'Glitchbuster' Tasks Players with Debugging a Game Before Release

As video games get increasingly sprawling, the likelihood of coming upon a glitch increases, and Glitchbuster is a new game that riffs on the concept of errors in video game code. The game centers on the idea of a small piece of code running through the game and battling glitches to get it ready for its upcoming release date.

Glitchbuster's "glitches" are of course part of the game itself, as they put a spin on the standard 2D, side-scrolling action. The little, square pixel of a character is tasked with quelling the twists as they arise, though it can be difficult. There are currently over 40 of these glitches that pop up throughout the levels, including things like low gravity, water physics, larger enemies, and bigger explosions.
