Arachnophobia

Moby ID: 6256
DOS Specs

Description

This simple action game is based on the Hollywood movie Arachnophobia.

South American spiders have overrun a large area in some areas of the United States. It's your task to clean the infested farms, houses or public buildings by using a very effective pesticide called "Toxi-Max". One of the most useful devices your character can use is an arachno-detector indicating approaching vermin. The player sprite is controlled from a side-view and basically only needs to use his toxic pesticide in time to defend himself from attacking spiders, just like a simple reaction game.
