How to Move keyboard control:
Use the cursor keys or the numeric keypad to navigate the Pacman. (Mouse-control is still active.)
|"N"|| ... ||New game|
|"P" or "ESC"|| ... ||Pause (will be indicated by a "P" in the level display)|
(Netscape 4 users will have to click anywhere in the window first, to give keyboard focus to it!)
For the comfort of notebook users an alternate set of configurable keys is availble:
default: i (up)
(left) j k l (right)
How to Move mouse control:
Mouse control was the early concept (before keyboard imput was introduced with Netscape 4.x).
Center the mouse pointer over the controller at the lower right side of the game area and move the mouse in the direction you want the Pacman to move.
Move the mouse onto the arrows to direct the Pacman through the maze. To repeat a command (p.e. to start a new level) center the pointer in the middle and reenter the arrow's area (clicking the arrow works just the same).
Click the ball in the middle of the controller to pause the game.
Click again to continue.
You will be rewarded with a bonus life every 7000 points.
There may be a maximum of 4 lifes "in stock" and one in play.
In case you are using a fast computer (800 MHz+), increase the smoothness settings for better animation quality. The initial setting is quite low to conform to slower hadware.
The actual animation speed results from the combination of speed and smoothness and the limitations of the hardware used. If the animations turns "jaggy" reduce smoothness to optimize your top speed.
You may also choose to start your game with random levels just from the beginning.
