This game has 3 game modes: * 1 Player -> 10 different rounds * 2 Player -> 1 round, unlimited lifes * Fast Game -> 1 round, one life, FAST!
In the 1 player mode the objective is to catch all 6 ghosts. When all 6 ghosts are captured a new round will start. Game is over when all lives are lost.
In the 2 player mode the player that scores most points wins. Both players and ghosts will be respawned when dead. Game is over when the maze ends.
In fast game mode: just survive! Oh... and try to get as many points as possible - catch all 6 ghosts, get the fruit and make streaks as long as possible when eating dots.
In PAC-01 there are 2 ways of dying: * when catched by a ghost * when trapped in the green bits
In the 1 player mode extra lifes are rewarded at each 5000 points.
For the best possible experience this game should be played on a real MSX machine connected to a CRT monitor. The fastest levels of the Fast Game mode may became unplayable when using an emulator, due to lag.
