Players guide a yellow, pie-shaped creature around a single maze, munching dots while avoiding four roaming ghosts. Four energizer dots are on the board, one in each corner. Eating one of these special dots will temporarily empower Pac-Man to turn the tables on the ghosts. Each time all the dots in a maze are eaten, play resumes with a fresh screen. Written by
