How about Stompin', by Bally/Sente? Same general principle: There's food in the center of the screen, and you have to protect it from errant ants, cockroaches, birds, mice, gophers, and so on, depending on the level.

The trick? In this one you weren't hitting the screen, there was actually a 3x3 grid of panels that you had to physically stomp on in order to defeat the enemies. Kind of like a 15-years-early version of Dance Dance Revolution.
