The adventurer has been called by the Police Chief of "De Bunk, Iowa" to stop five "renegade hackers" armed with machine guns. They have holed up in the office of the publisher of the "Eaton" computer game (the "infamous and bizarre Eaton Publishing House") and for an undisclosed reason must be stopped.
The adventure is set in "De Bunk, Iowa", a play on "Des Moines." In his review, Tom Zuchowski suggests that the house in which the adventure is set is modeled after John Nelson's residence; Zuchowski's upload to the IF Archive described the plot merely as "Trash the NEUC leader's house." The "renegade hackers"—John, Steve, Jeff, Bob, and Dan—are thought to be the National Eamon User's Club staff.
Tom Zuchowski gave B I Z A R R O a rating of 2 of 10, explaining the low rating by noting its brevity and suggesting that the game was "not badly done, but there's little of interest to do or see."
- B I Z A R R O has a conceit in which the player may accidentally walk into a computer program, the only escape being from SAYing "GOTO 63999."
