That's part of the instability I mentioned for OS 9 earlier in this thread.

Basically that "Pac-Mac" game may or may not have been written to work with OS 9...or was written before OS 9. Also, one of the BIG things with OS 9 was lots & lots of "Control Panel" & "Extension" conflicts.

Some programs install a control panel or extension into the System Folder..on top of the Control Panels & Extensions already there. So conflicts occur...and then the system crashes.

OS 9 is actually much easier to understand (IMHO) than OS X. Back with OS 5 & OS 6...when the whole OS fit on a 400k floppy disk..the "System & Finder" programs were a single file each. If you deleted those two files (just two individual files)...and your OS was completely gone.
