Description

Interesting attempt at a game where you battle within your own computer's directory structure and files. Traverse your directory tree in a 3D environment hunting down 'viruses', with your computer's own sound files being played in the background, graphic files being used to texture the walls.

Trivia

As a publicity stunt, Telstar Electronic Studios, the UK publishers of Virus: The Game, sent a mock virus email to thousands of PC users across the globe. When the recipient clicked on the attached file, the contents of their hard drive was displayed. The program then appeared to delete all the user's files and the screen went black. After a few seconds the user got the message, 'Thank God this is only a game,' followed by promotional screens for the Virus: The Game.
