Intellivision. Burgertime. I played the hell out of this game. I knew the patterns for the first eighteen + levels (and there were only nine levels--after nine, they recycled the same boards, only tougher). This game was better than Donkey Kong.
You play this chef that is being chased by pickles, sausages, and eggs. The really cool part was the "pepper spray" that you could save up in order to get out of really tight jams. That was something that Pac-Man never had, a reprieve in case you got into a tough spot. But the pepper sprays were limited and you only got extra ones by getting the bonuses that popped up from time to time.
My whole family growing up played this game regularly. This was just fun, fun, fun, and deserves a place as one of the greatest video games.
