Snarf is an adventure game in which the character makes a run through a dungeon while being chased by snarfs. He is obligated to collect keys that will open doors but can opt to pick up treasure for more points. The character begins with 50 'tags,' which are lost if he comes in contact with any snarfs. His weapon can be fired in any of 4 directions, with 2 shots allowed to be 'live' at any given time. Snarfs hatch out of snarf nests, replacing their fallen snarf brethren.
