I know that Ben has already written about Pest Control but I only properly discovered it yesterday and thought it was great – so I thought I’d quickly post about it.

It’s a great fun well made whack-a-mole type game on steroids with cool retro graphics and music, and lots of variety.

Pest Control

It was my 8 year old son, Conan, who found it. He loves playing games on Miniclip and he showed me Pest Control. He was stuck on a few tougher levels and I said “let me have a go”, then I used my 20+ years of mouse clicking skill to hammer that mouse button like a machine gun and blasted through all the levels he couldn’t beat. He, and my other son Callum (aged 5), were slack-jawed in amazement at their dad’s awesome gaming prowess 😉 Be sure to check it out!


I'm an Indie game developer with a couple of titles under my belt. I've been programming for 23 years on a variety of platforms. Currently I'm using BlitzMax, which is great.


  1. Hi Oliver, I’m afraid I don’t remember that level. Most of the levels were either precision-based or rapid fire based and with enough practice I was able to beat them so I suggest trying again … and again.
