Info -

 

Dung Beetles is an Apple II maze game by Bob Bishop published in 1982 by Datasoft.[1] The gameplay is similar to Pac-Man, but a portion of the maze around the player-controlled character is enlarged as if being viewed through a square magnifying lens.

Dung Beetles was ported to Atari 8-bit family and the TRS-80 Color Computer. The Color Computer version was sold by Tandy and renamed Mega-Bug.[3] The Mega Bug port was programmed by Steve Bjork. Later versions for both the Apple II and Atari were named Tumble Bugs.[4] The Atari version was re-released in 1983 by Gentry Software with another name change: Magneto Bugs.[5] In Australia, the game was re-branded Bug Attack.[citation needed] It was also released for the NEC PC-6001.

I think I completed the first maze once back in the day.  I wonder if I'm any good at it now?
