    I'm trying to get the name of a game I used to play in the early 90s. I think it was for os 6 or 7.

    Details I think are correct:
    It was an arcade game like centipede with bad guys falling from the top
    The first level was crabs
    There were trilobites
    I believe it took place on a beach
    The splash screen/intro featured radioactive waste barrels


    If any of this sound familiar, I'd love to hear what game you think it is. I'm pretty sure it was B&W and I've done tons of Google searches using the details above, I'm just not sure that anyone has a page on the 'net about this game.

    Ultimately, I'm trying to track down screenshots or even a copy of the game that I can toss in an emulator.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the game you are thinking of is Firefall by Pangea Software. A fun old game! They sold the name Firefall, but you can buy the app Pangea Arcade for OS X, which includes a new OS X version called Fireworms (it was free in the app store for a bit, but i'm not sure it is now). The original Firefall is now freeware. Here's a screenshot of the original.

    In fact it is still free at the moment, so grab it while you can.

    Actually, just re-read your description - maybe it was a different game. This one is centipede like with radioactive waste barrels, but it doesn't take place on a beach...

    Yea, that's not the game, but I'm going to download it anyway, so thanks!
