PAC-MAN™ Tips

How to Play:

The goal of PAC-MAN™ is to earn as many points as possible by eating Pac-Dots, Ghosts, and Fruits while clearing a Maze.

Each PAC-MAN™ match contains multiple mazes. Eat all of the Pac-Dots in a Maze to clear it, and move on to the next Maze for more points.

Strategy:

  • Clear all the Mazes before time runs out to earn a time bonus. Don’t focus too much on the time bonus – there are a lot of points to be had within each Maze.
  • There are 4 Ghosts; Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. Each Ghost has a unique way of chasing Pac-Man through the Maze. Ghosts can be gobbled after eating a Power Pellet. The Ghosts remain in the blue frightened state for a short time so eat them quickly.
  • Fruits appear in a maze after eating at least half the dots in that maze. Different Fruits are worth a varying amount of points from 100 to 5,000. Remember to eat the Fruit before eating the last pellet. Keep an eye out for pineapples which are worth a whopping 5,000 points.
  • As Pac-Man eats more and more pellets he speeds up, but watch out because the Ghosts will also get faster. If a Ghost catches Pac-Man, you will slow down and lose 500 points.

Pro Tip 1:

The closer the Ghosts are when you eat a Power Pellet, the easier it is to eat them all.

Pro Tip 2:

The more pellets you eat, the faster you go. But if you hit a Ghost you will slow back down.

Pro Tip 3:

Swipe before a turn to turn more quickly, then keep an eye on the arrow next to Pac-Man. It shows the direction he will turn at the next intersection.
