From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Arachnophobia is a video game based on the film Arachnophobia. It was developed by BlueSky Software and Disney for the MS-DOS, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, and Amiga platforms.
   The player assumes the role of Delbert McClintock, a bug-exterminator and character from the original film, fighting to save the USA from a horde of invading killer spiders. Delbert must go through houses in eight towns, killing spiders in each one. If Delbert succeeds in finishing all eight towns, the United Nations declares that the spider must become extinct, and commissions McClintock to work with Dr. Atherton to go to South America, home of the spiders.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Arachnophobia was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
