Trailin' Tail is one of many clones of the game where one uses a constantly moving line to steer around the screen trying to collide with certain objects. The catch is, every time you DO catch an object, your tail grows longer, and you can't cross your own tail. This one from Rainbow magazine, was unique in that it 1) saved high scores, and 2) your tail left a little bit of debris... which you also had to avoid.
