Review of 'Tarantula'

Rating:3 User: WhenIWasCruel

A multi-screen which technically looks very dated, and with a ripetitive and depthless gameplay, but strangely it's effectively creepy to me, in spite of all the evident flaws and limitations. The aim seems to be stealing the eggs from some insects of variable size, moving at full speed through a series of ugly caverns. The only other game that conveyed such a creepiness to me is Wriggler, thanks to its tantalizingly disquieting spiders. In this game spiders AND scorpions, are surely not missing.
