I'll tell you who. The programmers at Microsoft for that classic game Gorillas (Goes to Wikipedia... TinyURL because the forum doesn't allow URLs with parentheses). You can even play a highly accurate remake here: http://www.rickyroad.com/games/gorillas

Ex forum member uilleann made a version called Gorillas Deluxe, with some improvements. Windows-only, so I haven't played it. I did have a tiny greyscale version on my old Sony J5 mobile phone though (they played in palm trees instead of a city).

Cool! I'm definitely checking that out! I was always a fan of the QBasic snake game Nibbles, especially after I reached the point where the level just repeated. No other game in the genre has compared in my mind...
