As an example of what you can do with comparatively few bytes of machine code this is not had, providing you think it was worth doing in the first place.
   For yes, this is yet another version of our dear old friend dots. maze, mouth, ghosts, .... get the picture? With the usual sound accompaniments, rather like a mouse being electrocuted.
  When a ghost --- or is it a gook? - bears down on the munchiemouth to pacmanize him, there comes a sort of paralysis over our gobbling pal. He no longer responds to the keys.
  This increases the difficulty of the game somewhat, but patient players will doubtless find a way round the problem.
  Bowing Up the World is a tedious, silly game in which keys 1 to 8 bear a rather vague relationship to "bombs" which are released at various points on a Mercator projection.
  If you persevere you can eventually delete the lot; this, it is claimed you can "indulge your megalomania."        C.M
