|Pesterminator: The Western Exterminator|
Pesterminator: The Western Exterminator is a side-scrolling, platform advergame developed by Color Dreams for the Nintendo Entertainment System, in cooperation with the Western Exterminator Company (a privately owned pest control company headquartered in Anaheim, California). Color Dreams published the game in 1990.
As Kernel Kleanup, the mascot of the Western Exterminator Company, the player attempts to thwart Ronnie the Super Rat, an anthropomorphic rat who is attempting to dominate Earth by producing mutant animals from a factory on the Moon.
Each of the nine game levels has a predetermined number of "pests". The player must smash all of the pests with his mallet in order to advance to the next level. In the final level, Ronnie's moonbase, the player must also locate a keycard to access the room in which Ronnie waits.
