A ROM of an apparently damaged game board found locked in a safe in the back of an old arcade. Gameplay appears relatively consistent with the classic "PacMan". Primary differences are:

- Player cannot see what PacMan cannot see

- Ghosts behaviors are... unique.

- Players who are unable to finish the original arcade game board suffer severe psychological and occasionally physiological trauma, up to and including death of the subject (ROM's effect is significantly reduced).

Controls

Enter/Space: Emulate coin deposit

WASD/Arrows: Move PacMan

M: Mute audio

G: Disable / Enable CRT effect (if your browser is having issues)

Works best in Chrome.

UPDATE:

Added ability to disable CRT effect
Fixed SCREAMY occasionally getting stuck
Power Pills animation no longer freezes on Player death

This is very interesting. I like it.

This is honestly pretty damn good. It mainly just plays on fear of the unknown showing you do not need to write a long backstory for a fake or modified game to make it scary. Well played and the glitchy audio and graphics fit in for a short and quick horror game experience.

well... err/31 code: 201 457 h3 ar3 b3h1nd y02

I can't see a thing except two large windows, a glipse of pac man's top of head moving from right to left and some occasional red flashing lights... I can't play this game personally.

Okay. I saw this game and just had to leave a review. This game actually made me make an account on Newgrounds solely so I COULD leave a review. So let me just say a few things.

First... good game. Really good game. It has that sort of creepypasta feel to it. You don't even need the jumpscares to make this scary. One of the best Pac Man clones out there.

But I also think that this game has a few problems. In particular, I am talking about the vision. There is no way of telling if you are about to walk into a ghost. No way at all. And that's pretty much my only complaint. Maybe you could add audio cues to make us know if a ghost is nearby. But there is currently no way to tell other that big dots.
And although I only reached level 3, good game. I look forward to seeing this game expand.

But for heavens sake, change this games name please. Maybe Pacman.exe or something like that. Seriously, I can't type Pacm̌͢a͑̿ͫn into a google searchbar, now can I?

But I almost never die from anything but being killed by a ghost that was around the corner. So if you could add a warning, that would be great. 4.5 stars.
