Frisky Tom was a 1981 arcade game by Nichibutsu. The object of the game is to provide enough water for a shower by crawling along a network of plumbing pipes and picking up/replacing loose pieces. Various types of mice are the game's antagonists, trying to thwart Tom in different ways: knocking pipes loose to disrupt the water flow, jumping down to fall on him, or setting a bomb to blow up the entire plumbing arrangement. A version for the Atari 5200 was programmed in 1983, but was never released. It was, however, released for the Nintendo Game Boy in 1995, and the PlayStation in 2002. Bandai Electronics created a VFD hand held game of Frisky Tom in 1982.
