Aspirin improves on traffic-dodgers like Frogger and Spy's Demise by importing the structure of Snake: goals spawn one at a time in random locations, and each one you reach increments the number of threats you have to dart between.

Hidden Text

nthg 128 is meant to look like "nothing" special to a casual resource snooper, but it's a dual-layer copyright trap. Even if a plagiarist were to scroll down in ResEdit's hex editor, see the credit line, and replace it—

—they might overlook SEBASTIAN and BRYTTING concealed higher up, amidst the gibberish.

The other nthg resource is the same, except that in place of the copyright is a developer rant:

RETURN OF THE KILLER TOMATOES IS A VERY COOL MOVIE. I LIKE THE X FILES. BLAH BLAH BLAH. THIS NONSENSE DOESN'T MEAN A F***ING THING, SO WHY ARE YOU STARING AT THIS? QUIT THIS PROGRAM AND STOP STARING AT MY RESOURCES THIS INSTANT! WHY DON'T YOU PLAY SOMETHING INSTEAD? WHAT ARE YOU, DO YOU HAVE SOME PROBLEMS IN READING OR UNDERSTANDING? I SAID G E T   T H E   * * *   O U T   O F   M Y   R E S O U R C E S ! ! !

Unused Alert

There's a Game Over dialog in the author's native Swedish that isn't displayed, allowing the game to remain completely textless.

Unfortunately, you have been crushed by a
horrible block with nails on it. Do you
want to play again?
