Ms. Pac-Man must eat all the dots in a maze in order to advance to the next stage. She's chased by killer ghosts but she can eat them while powered up after eating one of four large dots. Bonus points are awarded for eating the fruits and snacks that appear and wander the maze.

Can we use the (with speedup hack) instead of the cheat?

Yes, I believe they're both the same. Someone, correct me if I'm wrong. Use either one. I just tested them and she seems to go just as fast in both versions. :)

OK, this is a tiny bit harder than I remembered. You can't just zip right through the boards as fast as possible without missing the second fruit, (which could be a banana on levels 7 and up.) Also, you have have to watch out for the monsters' reversals. They nailed me twice in this game.

I hope to make it to the kill screen some time this week, which I've never done before mainly because I hate this version of Ms. Pac-man with a passion.

Ms PacMan - (bonus) - 142,980





I think I pasted this video properly. If it doesn't play, can you guys let me know?

I wanted to do the bonus game for this week first. As far as turbo is concerned, I think a kill screen will be very possible for me. The only thing that would keep me from the kill is accidently ramming into the ghosts, which is always a possibility when you are travelling around the board this fast.

I share the same opinion as Fallout. I also wished that we were playing normal speed Ms. PacMan. But the bonus game will do just fine, I guess.

Thanks for sharing this video Offender.
Great tips in it ... you should do that more often.

More on the passing straight through a ghost unharmed ...

M.O. is my brother, so I find this particularly humourous (Mike, time to sharpen your pencils, tee hee hee).

I'm not even going to bother submitting a score for the bonus; turbo only:

I don't know if I'm going to waste anymore time on this, stupid mistakes and boredom killed me. I lost one life when a banana was on the board for heaven's sake.

432,400. Level 67, I think.

That's the end of this week's competition. I thought folks would enjoy the steroid-infused version of Ms. Pac-Man more than they did. I like it because it's the only way I can score big points on the game. :)

Perhaps the classic alien shooter, Gorf, will be more to everyone's liking. :) Game on!
