There was a similar game for the Commodore called Wet Paint. You operated a paintbrush and couldn't paint over a spot that had already been painted. They added a CPU paintbrush each of the first few rounds. After that the CPU paintbrushes kept getting faster.
If you painted over a spot that already had paint you lost a life...if the CPU did they were eliminated from that round, so you'd try to be the last painter each time.
