"Nibbles" involved guiding a worm aroung a maze and eating numbered food icons. If you hit a wall, you lost. As your worm ate more food, it grew longer, which increased the difficulty because you could also die from running into your own body.
There was a primitive artillery game in which two gorillas took turns throwing explosive bananas at each other across a skyscraper-filled cityscape. You were supposed to calculate the proper angle and power of the banana toss to arc over the intervening buildings and hit your opponent, but I found that if you aimed directly at him and set the power very high, the bananas would simlpy cut through the buildings after a few shots.
