Painter

In this game you are a painter whose job is to fill in boxes by completing the lines surrounding them. At the same time you are being hunted by 'chasers' which you must avoid. Your only protection, other than speed and cunning, is the ability to insert three gaps in the lines, which the Chasers cannot cross. When you complete the lines, the boxes change colour, and slowly a character is built up. For example, a space invader character and the A&F logo are formed.

I didn't find this game very fast even though it is written in machine code and it doesn't stand out in this highly competitive market.
