Description

When Ronnie the Super Rat radiates earth with a pest beam from his moon base, the world leaders' only hope is Kernel Kleanup, the mascot from the Western Exterminator Company. With his trusty hammer, Kernel needs to clear the levels by slamming all loose bugs. You will be haunted by spiders, ants, fireflies, worms, sharks, jellyfish and mutants.

The nine levels are pretty straightforward side-scrolling platform stages, with a nice twist in level 5, 7 and 8.1 (a helicopter, underwater and moon surface level respectively). While playing, you can view a status report with the remaining bugs to be found. Some defeated enemies leave behind hearts (extra lives) and the final level introduces an adventure element when you have to find a key card to open the door to Ronnie's lair.

Easter Eggs

In level 3, the warehouse stage, some of the Color Dreams' developers' initials are hidden:
  • KHB (Ken Beckett): written on the green pipes underneath the "Southern Imports" sign.

  • DB (Dan Burke): between the two dragon heads at the bottom of the screen.

  • JT (Jim Treadway): look for the section with boxes carrying the "Up" caption. One of them has the initials written in black at the bottom left corner of the box.

  • JV (Jon Valesh): There is section with green statues. Underneath the third statue from the right, these initials can be seen in a dark green colour.
