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.
Pac-Man can turn the tables on his pursuers by eating of the four Energizers located within the maze. During this time, the ghosts turn blue, and Pac-Man can eat them for bonus points. This only lasts for a limited amount of time, as the ghost's eyes float back to their center box, and regenerate to chase after Pac-Man again.
Survive a few rounds of gameplay, and be treated to humorous intermissions between Pac-Man and the ghosts.
Made in 1983 Pac-Man became to be a timeless classic. IT was ported to probably every know machine and has inspired numerous clones over the years (And still does, just look at all the flash games that are nothing more then clones of this one). But here is the one and only original Pac-Man.
The plot is very simple. You're a hungry little mouth opening and pallet gobbling circle chased by four ghosts in a maze. Your goal is to gobble up all the pallets without being caught by any of the ghosts, unless you swallow a power-pallet which enables you to chomp the ghosties and send them back to the rectangle in the middle of the screen.
Every now and again a good (a cherry or a strawberry) will appear and you can swallow that too for more points. And that's about it.
The good thing is that the game starts off quite easy, the ghosts are slower then you are, they aren't directly chasing you, but moving randomly around (otherwise it would be too easy for them to corner you) and you can also pass through the secret passage on the left and right edges of the maze (then again, so can the ghosts).
The game allows you to play either with the keyboards or with the joystick and the color palette doesn't burn your eyes away (even though the game features only 4 color CGA graphics). There are also sounds to the game (not much, but there are). So the game has it all that a 1983 developer could have offered I guess, plus incredible addictives.
Go ahead, download it, I dare you! You'll see that no mater how used you are to modern fancy 3D realer the real graphics and mind-blowing sound effects, this game will still be able to get you hooked!
