The Amazing Pacman Game
Pacman is one of the famous games which became a hit many years ago. The game is easy to play and even small children can understand it. You just use the arrow keys on your computer keyboard to move the Pacman through the maze and he is going to eat all the white dots. What is more exciting for this game is that the Pac is going to be hunted by the enemy ghosts named Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. If he is caught, the Pacman will surely die. But if the Pacman is able to eat a power pill, he can eat them (ghosts). Eating the power pills will change the color of the ghosts into deep blue, as well as they can only move slowly. But his power pill will only last in minute and the ghost returns to its normal appearance that the Pacman cannot eat. So he needs to run again to avoid the ghosts.
