      LOL so did I! How do you play pacman? I led a sheltered life and never played it...

        Lol at least I'm not the only one tongue

        You basically have to just eat all the dots in the level and avoid the ghost things. Once you do that, you go to the next level.

        If you get the glowing orb, you are able to eat the ghosts for more points or to save you if you get stuck (it only lasts for a few seconds though). If you eat two or more ghosts in a row you get double the points.

        You can also get the fruit that appear sometimes under the ghost cage thing for more points.

        It's a classic smile

          But how to do you play it with a mouse and not a joystick? What do you press as you go along, and where?

            Ah, just the arrow keys on the keyboard. That should move him around.

              Excellent! I'll try it when I go home - I'm in the corner of a public bar just now and the noise might attract unwelcome attention LOL

                mrpopoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                Haha, nice! Have fun!

                I just noticed that you actually can use your mouse - just click to the point you wish him to go when you're at a corner or able to change directions. I find it much harder though.

    That is really awesome!
    And you know, they say that video games affect kids, but if that were true, we'd have a whole generation running around in darkened rooms, listening to repetitive electronic music and taking magic pills.

    Hey....wait a minute!
