Playing Pac-Man is very simple. The main objective is to get as many points as possible in a single game. To do this, we will have to lead our character through intricate mazes, devouring the points. Once we manage to get them all, we will move on to the next screen.
To complicate things a bit and make it more fun, there are ghosts: colorful creatures that will chase us and will kill our character if they manage to touch him. However, when we devour one of the special points, our character will acquire the ability to devour them for a limited period of time (adding extra points). Finally, cherries are a special item that will also add points.
Pacman online allows you to control three characters: Pacman, Mrs. Pacman and the Cookie Monster. It also allows us to choose a turbo version that accelerates the gameplay of this classic game.
