Pacman - Solo
Otherwise known as the munch maze…
The Pacman Puzzle has a difficulty level of ‘omg this hurts’
This is a replica of the old style super original Pacman game, with a nasty twist, you cannot see where your char is in the maze and you cannot see where the ghosts are!
Thankfully, there is help! the rat catcher add on (see the introduction page for details) has a map of the puzzle that shows you which pellets you have picked up already. This is super handy for sorting out your route. The R in the bottom right corner is a button to reset the pellets after a failed attempt.. which you will have lots of to begin with, just keep at it 🙂
To the right is a map of the puzzle, with the routes of the ghosts drawn on, they will follow these routes when you activate the lamp in that corner.
So when you run over the lamp on the red spot, the ghosts will all move to the red corner and start running along the red line until the lamp burns out. Its the same for the blue, purple and yellow lamps, once you switch them on (by running over them) the ghosts will move to that corner and run along the line. When the lamp burns out, the ghosts will leave their path and start spreading out through the maze, so you want to be activating the second lamp just as the first burns out, this way you stay in control of where the ghosts are.
The trick, is not to be anywhere near the corner where the ghosts are following their path.
