About Bio-Terror!

If you appreciate classic Interactive Fiction games such as Zork! or Adventure, if you enjoy solving word and number puzzles, and if you like the asthetic of the movie WarGames, then you will be intrigued and challenged by the retrofuturistic style of Bio-Terror! on 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette exclusively for the Commmodore 64.

Text commands are issued from the computer keyboard. QUARANTINE city, RESEARCH a cure code, and many more. A strategic map shows infected cities, quarantines and research results. A detailed report page gives statistics of the infected cities, infection rates and current population counts. Use the colored "Syringe" Research Pen to decode the cure on the Research Log.

All of these data are used by you to develop a strategy which will solve the cure code and eradicate the infection!

Good Luck!

About the Author

My name is Jason Grow and my text-based computer gaming experience began in the 1970s. I remember playing Colossal Cave and Zork! and others. My favorite text-based game was Star Trek.

With Bio-Terror!, I have recreated the gaming experience that I remember from the 1970s. Even the $20 price tag of my modern game is vintage and it comes on a 5 1/4" floppy diskette with a syringe style pen for recording results on the research log.

Why did I build Bio-Terror! ?

Back in 1983, I used a Commodore 64 to play games, write games, and to tinker with other people's games. When the movie WarGames was released I wanted to build my own game inspired by the NORAD operations center with the giant maps. The map for this game came out of my (uncompleted) WarGames sim from 1983.

This enhanced version of Bio-Terror! is available for the Commodore 64 on floppy diskette only, limited to 50 copies, numbered and signed. This edition will not be reproduced.
