Your character would be on the screen as well. Also even if graphically possible, which is somewhat hard to believe, wouldn't the enemies be dumb as rocks? I do know one game that could benefit from having so many creatures on screen at once: SimAnt.
I saw that and immediately thought of, how back in the day, objects on the screen were called sprites and they would have to actually flash/blink if you had more than a couple. We have come a long way.
