SimTunes was a kids' software toy designed by Toshio Iwai and released by Maxis. It involved painting a picture with dots (large pixels), where each color (unless it was part of the backdrop, which was black or a bitmap) represented a musical note. The player would place up to four different-coloured Bugz, which represented instruments or vocal syllables, on this picture, and could change their starting directions and relative speeds. The Bugz would crawl over the picture, playing notes corresponding with the colours, and turning, moving randomly or jumping in response to function symbols that could be added to the dots.
