This is a nice game published in issue 108 of Hebdogiciel. Magazine, 1985. It is a Pac-man style game, eat the pills-avoid the monsters, but uses 2x2 sprites, somewhat similar to Mazogs. Fast moving and fun, but the original program's instructions were in French so I translated them, as best I could, using Google translate. Also the movement keys were those stupid cursor keys, 5-6-7-8. I patched the program to use keys Q-A-O-P instead, which wasn't very easy as the program bypassed the ROM decoding routines and reads the keyboard directly using IN A,(FE). See Controls Patch.asm if interested. If you prefer the cursor keys just deleted line 80 in the listing.

I've also included a simple Chroma color scheme as well.

Yes, a funny Game !

The numeric display routine is good, and point to the line address in the machine code routine (retrieved in the dedicated ROM routine)!
