Game came with a poster-sized map for "City of Lizard Breath".
The game is loosely based on the movie THEM!
(renamed into Formicula
in Europe) from 1954.
- A lot of places in the game are named after people who worked at Cinemaware. Two examples: Platt University Lab (Named after programmer Randy Platt) Godfrey's Hotsprings (Named after graphic artist Jeff Godfrey)
- The Rocket Ranger, from another Cinemaware game, can be seen flying around on the movie screen at Beverly's Drive In.
