Amidars (stick figures with what appear to be nets) chase a gorilla around the odd numbered rounds, a paint roller avoids pigs during the evens. Elements of Qix are here, as the player draws a line behind wherever their character goes to surround and illuminate a maze of rectangles. Escape using the jump button (3 jumps are allowed per round), attack by illuminating all four corners and touching the enemies. This one is quite a bit more engaging than the home translations. It even includes a bonus round where a the player selects which path a pig will take to possibly lead it to a treat below. Charming music, but slightly irritating sound effects. I know this game has been knocked in the past, but I must admit I enjoy Amidar quite a bit.
