Arachnophobia Tips & Tricks

Tags: Arachnophobia Game Guides, Arachnophobia Hints, Arachnophobia Walkthrough


"Arachnophobia" is an arcade-style action game pitting you 
against a previously unknown species of spiders that is 
lethally poisonous, extremely aggressive, and strangly 
intelligent.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture has 
retained your extermination firm to destroy the deadly Queen 
spiders and their lethal offspring before they take over the 
country.  Once you have wiped out the threat in the United 
States, the United Nations hires you to destroy an entire 
herd of South American spiders in the Amazon rain forests.

Fast action and loads of spider-busting sound effects.  With 
the Sound Source you'll hear sizzling spiders,  creepy sound 
effects, and blood curdling screams.  It's all part of the

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Finding the Queen Spider
LEVEL 1 - A Small Clue

In each town there is one Queen spider.  She is creating new 
spiders that are taking over the town and terrorizing the 
inhabitants.  In order to "clean" the town you must find and 
kill the Queen.  Every location in a town will have an egg 
sack.  When you destroy the egg sack, your Bug-o-meter will 
tell you the compass direction to find the Queen.  Use the 
directional clues of the Bug-o-meter to locate the Queen.

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Finding the Queen Spider

LEVEL 2 - A Big Hint

When you get a direction clue from the Bug-O-meter, use it 
to your advantage.  You should not have to go to every 
location in a town to find the Queen.  You may want to go to 
each location to sharpen your bug-busting skills or to 
gather additional bug bombs, but you should be able to find 
the Queen's hideout after visiting only a few locations.

Say for example you start in the center location and destroy 
the egg sack and the direction you get says that it came 
from the southeast.  You have now narrowed the possible 
locations down to two as there are only two locations that 
are both south AND east of the center location.

Now, go to one of the locations directly to the east of 
where you just were.  When you destroy that egg sack, you 
will be told another clue that when coupled with your first 
clue will tell you the exact location of the Queen. 

Now all you have to do is face her!!!  Good luck, you're 
going to need it!

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Finding a Flame Thrower

LEVEL 1 - A Hint

In addition to stomping, spraying, and bug bombing those 
pesky arachnid invaders, you can also use objects found 
throughout the town to construct a super duper flame thrower 
the likes of which these creatures have never known.

To get a flame thrower, find a can (usually left on a lower 
level of a structure) and then grab some matches.  FWOOSH!  
You've got a flame thrower!  Be wise when you use it 
however, the can only holds enough spray for a limited 
number of shots.  Foolish use may leave you with your trusty 
but less powerful bug spray right when you need a flame 
thrower most.

One more quick note, each flame thrower is good only for the 
location in which you find it.  Once Delbert returns to his 
truck, the flame thrower for that town is gone.

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Finding a Flame Thrower

LEVEL 2 - A Big Hint

If you are having trouble constructing a flame thrower 
remember that you must have either the matches first and 
then locate a can, or the can first and then locate the 
matches in order for the weapon to work.

Only one can can be found for each town.  Although 
ARACHNOPHOBIA will place more than one can in each town, 
once one of them is found the rest "magically"'s our assumption that spiders got wise and 
hid the remaining cans from you.

There is a way however to tell if a location has a can 
before you even get the inside.  A careful player may learn 
this on their own through careful observation.

If you want to know right now, read the LEVEL 3 clue.

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Finding a Flame Thrower

LEVEL 3 - The Surest Way

In order to know when a particular location contains a can, 
listen to Delbert when he gets out of his truck.  The first 
location he enters in each town will be preceded by him 
saying something.  However, if he says something upon 
entering any location AFTER the first one, that is your clue 
that that is where a can can be found.

Once you have the can jump over all sets of matches that you 
find until you are sure that you are about to face the 
Queen.  That way you'll have a monstrous surprise for her 
unsuspecting highness when you confront her.

Note that there is ALWAYS a set of matches in a room next to 
where the Queen is lurking, so if you already have the can, 
and you know you are in the location where the Queen is 
hiding, be sure to grab the matches and then go after her.

Good luck fellow arachnid busters!

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Killing the Queen Spider

LEVEL 1 - A Small Hint

You must kill the Queen spider in order to move on to the 
next town and your final conflict with Big Bob and then the 
grand daddy of them all, The General, in South America.

Once you find the Queen, you can use bug spray, a flame 
thrower, and bug bombs to kill her.  You will have to fire 
bug spray repeatedly to kill the Queen or give her one good 
blast with the flame thrower.  

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Killing the Queen Spider

LEVEL 2 - The Surest Way

The best way to kill the Queen is to use the flame thrower.  
Locate the can in one of the other locations and then pick 
up the matches before you enter the room with the Queen.  
There is always a set of matches in a room next to the egg 
sack, but be sure when you are carrying the can that you 
jump over matches until you are ready to confront the Queen.

Once you have picked up the can and the matches and are 
equipped with the flame thrower, give the egg sack one good 
blast (you can be about half way across the room to do 
this), then walk towards the door while the egg sack blows 
up, then turn and give the Queen a good solid shot of 
flaming munchies to eat!  Congratulations on your victory 
over the evil arachnids, and as Delbert would say "On to the 
next town!"

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Winning in South America

Level 1 - Bug Bombs

The key to winning in South America is the proper use of bug 
bombs.  There are two queen spiders that you must defeat 
before you face the King of the Spiders.  Use a single bug 
bomb to stun the Queen spiders temporarily  and then blast 
away with your bug spray.  You only have five bug bombs, so 
using them wisely is the key to winning.  If you can stun 
and spray the first queen several times before the bomb 
wears off, the second bomb that you drop to stun the second 
queen will kill the first.  Then blast the second queen 
several times with your bug spray until she dies.  Once you 
have killed them, you should have three bombs left to do 
battle with the King of the Spiders.  You are going to need 
them!  Use them one at a time to stun him and spray like mad 
to kill him.  Try not to waste shots with your bug spray, 
you are limited you know!
