Pac Man

Anyone still remember Pac Man? One of the popular video games we used to play during the old days.. During those days, pac man is a simple yet addictive game. This is one of the games that I used to play in the late 80's. Well, we don't have many choices of games at those days.

I still remember myself playing the Pac Man game during my secondary school days. I played the game on the computers in my secondary school, using the IBM PC with green coloured monochrome monitors. The game were saved inside those 5 & 1/4 inches floppy diskette (I guess this 5 & 1/4 diskette was obsolete and no longer available). It was hard to control the movements using the keyboard. For those who wants to recall back those days, u can play the games online at this website.

The player guides the Pac Man about the maze (with joystick or buttons on keyboard) and scores point by munching up Dots in the his path. There are 4 Ghost Monsters, namely Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. These ghost monsters will chase after pac man, rying to capture and deflate him. The pac man can counter attack by eating the big, Power Capsule that enables him to overpower the monsters for additional scores. After all the dots are gobbled up, the screen is cleared and the pac man continues for another round/level. Each round features a special Fruit Target in the maze. If eaten, the player will earn bonus point.

Welcome back home to Malaysia. Hope u have a fruitful time back home and enjoy the gatherings with your family members :)

The most enjoyable time is when Pac Man eats the power capsule and start chasing the ghost monsters back.. Too back this is just transient and the ghost monsters will chase the poor pac man back later on.. :(
