Title War of the Arthropods
Description A RPG featuring insects, arachnids, and crustaceans. Although its size is quite large (100K), it has good graphics, runs quickly and smoothly, and is quite long. It is mostly written in BASIC with a few assembly programs to speed it up, but it requires no shells or libraries. This new version contains a few small bug fixes, the transition between screens is now faster, and size is reduced slightly. It is very easy to play, just send it to your calculator and press 7.

“War of the Arthropods” is a classic RPG - with the exception that you are a spider. There are several missions you have to beat, most of the involving a classic dungeon (usually an anthill). The gameplay is fairly standard- you move around, there are NPC’s you can talk to, and random encounters. In combat you can either attack, use a move, or use an item. However, there is a certain feel to the game, most likely because you are a bug, that makes it very fun to play.

Gameplay- 10/10 smooth
Graphics- 10/10 detailed, very nice
Speed- 10/10 you wouldn't believe it's BASIC
Repetition- 10/10 this game is not in the least bit repetitive
Overall- 10/10 a must download for RPG fans
