Classic Computer Magazine Archive BEST OF ANTIC VOLUME 1



The object of Bats is to fly your bat through a cavern while avoiding the walls and eating insects. You score points for every insect eaten. Pressing the fire button causes your bat to fly higher, releasing it causes the bat to fall. Your bat always flys steadily forward. You start over after you either score 300 points or you lose a bat. You lose all points if you hit a stalagtite. There are poison bugs, the color of your bat Eat one of these and your bat dies, you lose all points, and 100 penalty points are deducted.

The cavern narrows as the game progresses. You get a bonus bat for every 1000 points, with four bonus bats maximum. The game ends when all bats are dead.
