An Apple II game of lore, by Bob Bishop, in which you are a dung beetle invading an ant colony. It looks more or less like Pac-Man, the most interesting difference being that the maze is magnified by a moving "lens" on the screen, so you can only see the area immediately around you. The goal is to eat all the food in the maze, without getting caught by any of the ants. As you eat, you leave a trail behind you, which the ants follow at every opportunity, allowing them to find you more easily.

When the ants catch you, they yell "WE GOTCHA!" quite clearly through the Apple's one-bit speaker. An impressive feat for that machine. You only got one life, so once the ants got you, that was it. Start over!
