A short entry for a title flagged up in conversation with its developer Joe Alter.
We are unsure what the game was, but found a magazine advert in US-based Creative Computing Magazine in 1985 which seems to be advertising it. The game was described as follows:
Exterminate waves of Nerds, geek birds and nerd babies with explosive spit balls. Jump over molten lava pits. This machine language arcade style game is an audio visual masterpiece. Commodore 64 disk 12.95. Free information or orders: CRUSTYWARE Flint Hall <snipped address>.
That is me sold anyway – but how many others purchased a copy? At the moment, it doesn’t seem to be out in the public domain – so can you help us find it?
