In 1980, Namco developed a game caled “Puck-man” named by the motion that describes an opening and closing mouth while eating. His developer said that the Pac-Man was born one day in a restorant. When he cut off one slice of the pizza and look at the rest of it he got an idea for the game. Pacman life started first in Japain and it become so popular video game that it cause even a coin shortage there. “Puck-man” was renamed into Pac-Man and licensed and distributed in the U.S. by Midway. The small, round and yellow character soon become an idol not only in Japan and U.S. but all over the world and still is today. PacMan family started to grow, the companies developed a lot of games popular today as Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Jr. Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Pac-Man Plus, Baby Pac-Man and many more.
The point of the game is to guide the hungry yellow ball throught the maze and eat the dots. There are 240 dots on every level, and when you eat them all you go on the next stage. While eating you have to be carefull and be aware of the ghosts. They will do everything to catch you and destroy you. If a ghost touches you one life is lost and the game is over when all your lifes are gone. Also there are escape tunels on the left and the right side so you can escape from the ghosts in them. When the ghost enters in the tunel he is very slow so you have time to run! These four “monsters” or ghosts have names and personality. The developer made them different and with various hunting skills, so the game is more interesting and unpredictible. The four ghosts are:
Blinky. the red one who is chaser and follow PacMan all the time, and his speed increases after a certain number of eaten dots but only in the higher
Pinky. the pink one who is ambusher and trying to reach a position in front of PacMan .
Inky. the cyan one who is flicky all the time and very dangerous.
Clyde. the orange one who isn`t very smart and just running throught the maze.
There are four bigger dots in the corners on every stage called power pills or “energizers”. When you eat one of them Pacman becomes temporarily invincible, the ghosts change their colour into dark blue, become slower and disoriented. You may then hunt those nasty runners and eat them for some extra points. When you swallow one of the ghosts, his eye returns to the ” ghost pen”, the cage in the middle, where it is back to normal. But, as you get deeper in the game the power pills won`t last long as the first couple of stages. So be careffull, from a hunter you can become a prey.
You can score from the dots and energizers but also from bonus items that are most of the time fruits and appears near the center of the maze twice per level. On every 10000 points you get an extra life, so try to eat those items. You can score on:
– Power pill: 50 points.
