Game description

Snarf is an overhead view maze game apparently inspired by a similar arcade cabinet title called Tutankham. The player controls a treasure hunter who explores mazes infested with bug-like creatures called snarfs. These are constantly spawned into the level from holes in walls, and actively chase the player character, who can fire back in four directions while running.

The objective of each level is to reach the exit, which is locked, while collecting as much treasure as possible and avoiding being hit by the snarfs. Locked doors may be opened with keys, but the player can carry only one key at a time. There are teleporters the player can use to instantly jump from one side of the maze to another, evading the snarfs.

Snarf was originally sold as shareware, but on 2 January 2008 author Everett Kaser gave the site RGB Classic Games permission to distribute the full version. The unregistered shareware version contains 20 levels out of 50 in the full game. An early version of the game from 1998 includes the entire source code.
