Super Bug is a racing game for one player. The player controls a car resembling a yellow Volkswagen Beetle. The goal is to race as far as possible before fuel runs out. The game uses a top-down perspective and unlike earlier games scrolls in four directions. The player uses a gas pedal, steering wheel and gear shift to control the car which can drive in all directions. Oil slicks and sand banks. The player must also avoid collision with the track boundaries and other cars. There are two different difficulty levels.
