That’s hard to do. Nice score!

Thanks! I can’t imagine what it’s like to get one or two million points. Those are insane scores!

Thanks man. It’s about memorizing patterns. Anyone can do it!

I go bottom left, bottom right grab the fruit and don't eat the ghosts(when they're blue). After that I usually go top right but sometimes left, depending where the ghost are. I do my best to clear the dots without having to double back. I realize the ghosts tend to travel in the same direction and some are easier to evade than others. I also try not to get trapped in the corners.

 

Am I on the right track?

Yes you are, and you can play with the patterns and improve. There are a few patterns you could try but sounds like you’re doing well!

Not a bad start... look for something that takes out most of the bottom, one side and most of the top before the ghosts turn, along with using the fact that the ghosts (except under blue) can not enter the top Ts from the bottom (like the arcade) and can't also enter the BOTTOM T's from the bottom either :) Also learn which red/pink PREFERS to enter left bottom from the top and which prefers the right bottom if having the choice.

Back for the tail end of the HSC!

 

Never played Pac-Man on the Intellivision.  I think we forget how hard the 8-bit War of the 80s was!  WAY better port than the 2600!

 

Is it me or do the ghosts speed up with the siren?  I'm used to being able to take my time with each level.  Only played three times, but and my scores improved each time.

 

1. 3,310

2. 6,220

3. 16,300

 

My goal next season is to play every game at least once and post a score!  I hope everyone is doing well.

Did not prioritize gaming this month...but even with this score, I'll take my points for the time I did spend on it :P Didn't realize it was close to two years since we played this last here. Doesn't feel that long.

 

Pac-Man - 18,340
