Well, it serves as a quick pacman-fix, did not crash on me; so I see
no point in removing it. Still, one can play all that's there in 3
minutes. I think you should state in the description that the game
ends after one screen (FWIW, I don't know if ALL of the instructions
belong in the description). This allows users to decide beforehand
whether they want that or not.

Dunno if that can make it into deep-freeze, though.
