DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Arcade PCB

Pac-Gal © 19??.


Basically this game is "Pac-Man", with a few minor differences. The major difference is that the ghosts have fewer restrictions on their movement, making them more formidable. Also adding to the challenge are the different mazes and the fact that the fruit no longer stays in one place, but moves in, out and around the maze. Fortunately there is a power pellet in each corner that (usually) turns the ghosts blue for a period of time, allowing you to eat them for points.

This is "Ms. Pac-Man" with a color change and a new name. Also, the Midway name has been removed although the Midway logo is still there.

TRIVIA

This game is a hack of "Ms. Pac-Man".

Unlike the Pac-Man hacks, the Ms. Pac-Man hacks don't mess with the scores you get from eating dots, fruit and ghosts.
