Pacman game description
The maze has a landscape orientation. The warp tunnel is located at the top and bottom as opposed to the sides. The screen consists of 126 dashes. The ghost box is square with the door on the right side. The four ghosts start in the box one on top of the other. The point values of items are much lower. The prize at the bottom of the ghost box is a square called a vitamin worth 100 points. It behaves like a regular fruit. However, if Pac-Man loses a life when the vitamin is shown, the vitamin may not necessarily be forfeited.
Pacman is one of the most popular and influential games of the 1980’s, Pac-Man stars a little, yellow dot-muncher who works his way around to clear a maze of the various dots and fruit which inhabit the board.
Pac-Man’s goal is continually challenged by four ghosts: The shy blue ghost Bashful (Inky), the trailing red ghost Shadow (Blinky), the fast pink ghost Speedy (Pinky), and the forgetful orange ghost Pokey (Clyde). One touch from any of these ghosts means a loss of life for Pac-Man.
