My brother and I bought this on tape at a little Atari and Apple computer store when it first came out. Great graphics and very challenging! The whole concept just busted us both up, we had to buy it!! As usual, Synapse did not disappoint. 2 spatulas way up, but watch out for those pesky hornets!!! :O

Perhaps not quite on the top 10 list here, but I do have to admit that to this day, I think of this game whenever taking place in anything resembling a picnic.

Go get those bugs. This game will remind you of all those picnics when the bugs got you one way or another. It will remind you how stupid picnics really are (and dangerous too when the mayo or chicken salad gets too warm and you get e. coli!) I love this game, and my only criticism is that it gets too hard too fast. The game is one that will make you turn your 8-bitter off and start scratching because you'll think there's a tick climbing up your leg, or a cootie in your hair. Yuck! Have fun with this quarter-century old game. Loads of fun with a second or third grade child, and nonviolent except for the sound of the swatter. No blood, just disappearing bugs. This one's rare, almost impossible to find. Good luck!

George wants to have a nice, friendly and even peaceful picnic. He's laid out some food - a watermelon, a pineapple, a can of soda, a hot dog, etc. - on four picnic tables covered with neat tablecloths. Just as he's ready to dig in, they come. They are insects (of course) - ants, wasps and spiders.

Armed with only a fly swatter, George must defend himself and his food. The ants team up... [more]
