Game Mechanics

Pac-Man is controlled by a player who moves him throught the maze while simultaneously avoiding ghosts and collecting all pellets to advance through the next level. The Enemies of Pac-Man are four ghosts called Blinky,Pinky, Inky, and Clyde, each with their own different personalities. Lastly, the game was designed to have no ending, so a bug stops the game from continuing when the player reaches level 255, corrupting the screen.
