Description from the packaging.

Get out your bug blaster and save that fungus!

The thrill of the arcade game.
An insidious invasion of multiplying insects (centipedes, jumping spiders, poisonous scorpions, and frenzied fleas) pose different perils to the mushroom patch. You must repeatedly blast enraged creepers and stubborn obstacles or lose you enchanted fungus.

Remember to listen for the distinctive sounds of the attacking bugs; and watch out for blasted centipede segments, each one grows a new head!

The world's most popular video games can be yours to play at home, now that Atari makes them for the VIC-20. And the possibilities don't stop there. More compatible software will be available soon from Atarisoft, including educational, management and productivity programs.
