Pacman Online Game

Pacman online game is a maze arcade game developed by Namco in Japan on May 22, 1980 in an era where most of the games were shooters such as Asteroids, Space Invaders, and Galaga.  Pacman is the most famous non violent arcade in its time being suitable for both males and females in any age group.

How to Play Pacman Online Game

The Pacman online game is controlled through a maze by the player.  The objective of the Pacman online game is to get the yellow Pacman to eat all of the pac-dots while avoiding the enemies.  Once all the dots are eaten by Pacman, the player is taken to the next stage.

Pacman Online Game Enemies

Pacman online game has four enemies named Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde.  The enemies are known as “ghosts” and “monsters” that roam the maze trying to catch Pacman.  The ghosts and monsters are unpredictable.  A life is lost if any of the enemies touch Pacman.   Once all the lives are lost, the Pacman online game ends and you have to start all over again.

Near the corners of the maze, there are four large flashing dots called power pellets.  When Pacman eats the power pellets, the enemies turn blue and can be eaten temporarily.  After a short time, the enemies start flashing white just before they turn back to their normal colors. When the enemies turn blue, they try to run away from Pacman.  Once they turn back to their normal color, Pacman must avoid being touched by his enemies again, otherwise he loses his life. As the Pacman online game progresses, the time for the enemies to change back, decreases.  In the later stages, the enemies don’t change colour when Pacman eats a power pellet, but they can be eaten and still try to run away.

Getting Top Score On The Pacman Online Game

When Pacman eats other items in the form of fruit near the center of the maze, extra bonus points can be scored.  To achieve a top score, Pacman needs to complete 256 levels.  In each level, all of the dots, power pellets, fruit and enemies need to be eaten by Pacman.  The highest score ever achieved was 3,333,360 points by Billy Mitchell from Hollywood, Florida, on July 3, 1999.
