600 (c) 1981 Konami.
600 is a maze game where the player is a turtle trying to bring baby turtles, called 'kidturtles' to their homes while avoiding beetles. Scattered throughout the maze are boxes with question marks on them. When the player walks over a question mark, a baby turtle will crawl onto the main turtle's back, a house will appear at a random location on the map, and the player will have to bring the baby turtle to its house while avoiding beetles.
Other times, beetles will come out of the boxes, which the player will have to quickly run away from. The player's only offensive move is the ability to drop "smart bombs" to temporarily stun the beetles. The player's smart bombs can be refilled by grabbing the smart bombs in the middle of the maze. However, unlike actual smart bombs, the player's bombs do not move and stay in a single place until a beetle runs over it.
You have eight floors to deal with the beetles, then you'll go to the roof to get your baby turtles, after you go get them, you walk home with the rest of the baby turtles you collected. The game pattern is endless.

- TRIVIA -
600 was released in November 1981.
This title is similar in concept to Frogger, but closely resembles the much later "Super Pac-Man" in gameplay. Konami originally wrote this game (which they mysteriously titled 600), but it was licensed to Stern for US and European distribution (released in December 1981 as Turtles), and only a limited number of games were made bearing the 600 name. Konami also licensed this title to Sega as well, which they released under the name "Turpin".
