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.
