An Arcade Gobble
This is the first of three arcade type games included in this book. It is a variation on a well known theme in which you guide your character around a maze eating up the dots as you go.
Life is never easy in the arcade world and so there are a couple of nasties out to eat up the dots before you do.
To make matters worse they will kill you if they get you! The object of this variant is to pick up as many dots as possible before all the dots are gone, without being killed. Once all the dots are gone the next screen will be displayed.
The direction of the Pick Man is controlled using: cursor up for up, * for down, S for right and A for left.
In the hands of a skilled and patient player, incredible high scores can be achieved.
