Transcript of Pacman

Pacman is an iconic maze game. The aim of the game is to navigate Pacman, a pizza inspired yellow circle, around the maze to collect all of the dots, also known as pellets. You have to do this while avoiding the four coloured ghosts. There are four larger pellets scattered through the maze. These pellets allow Pacman to eat the ghosts for extra points.
