Destroy insect pests! Scorpions poison mushrooms, sending centipedes diving toward you.
The player controls a gun at the bottom of the screen and must destroy the advancing centipede as it makes its way from the top of the screen to the player area. Mushrooms are scattered about the screen, and the centipede descends a line every time it encounters a mushroom. The player must also avoid or destroy spiders, fleas, and scorpions. Advanced levels increase the speed of the enemies and centipedes. When a scorpion passes through a mushroom, it becomes poisoned - causing any centipede that comes in contact with it to drop directly to the bottom of the screen to attack the player. Destroying the centipede advances the player to the next wave.
