Collect all the pellets to progress, but beware of ghosts! This is a tribute to the classic arcade game, reinventing it as a puzzle. The ghosts can only sense you if you are lined up with them, and they chase you relentlessly when they do. Use you brains to manipulate them and collect all the pellets to progress to the next level. 8 levels in total.

Use the arrows to move. If you get stuck, press Z to undo, and R to restart the level.

Made with puzzlescript. Source code:

good concept just one improvement,
fix the AI.
if ur 2 the left they go left fair enough but they still do it wen theres a wall in the way.
either make them track you all the time or prevent them from tracking the player through walls.

Considering you made this using puzzlescript it is definitely an interesting take on a classic.

This game is pretty great! It's definitely a creative way of turning Pac-Man into a PuzzleScript game. The gameplay is really creative and the levels manage to increase in difficulty while maintaining basic and simple rules. My only complaint is that it seems a bit short and there are few game mechanics other than to move Pac-Man, avoid ghosts, and collect the white pellets. Perhaps adding warping screens or power pellets could somehow enhance the gameplay and allow for more interesting puzzles? Regardless of this, I think the game was really fascinating and fun to play. Keep up the good work!
