Unlike most games that let you control a monster that terrorizes a city eating people’s heads, Maneater doesn’t require a console, or even electricity. All it needs is a sticker of a monster with big googly eyes and an open mouth, and a window on a moving tram or bus (the moving part is very important). The goal: Move your head so that the monster eats the heads of people (or dogs) that you pass.
