DESCRIPTION
 
[Coin-Op] Arcade Video Game

Hyper Pacman © 1995 SemiCom.


This is an updated version of Namco's seminal "Pac-Man", featuring forced-perspective 3-D graphics that allow the players to jump over the enemy ghosts; in a similar fashion to Namco's "Pac-Mania", released in 1987. There are secret items and food to be found on each level that increases the player's power and score. The power-ups themselves consist of a shield, helmet lasers, speed and jump shoes. Players will face a boss encounter every ten stages and the game ends after the 30th stage.

TIPS AND TRICKS
 
If you eat only the small dots and not the power dots, you will gain access to a secret stage on each round (with extend, shield, helmet lasers, speed, and jump shoes). If you play with the second player, the ghost will chase you less than the first player and you will be closer to the fixed items on each stage.
