I'm not that good at pacman, but I can tell this is rad! The beats are no slouch either XD

When I set out playing entries, I made a promise to myself that I will see EVERY last entry to the END, so I went back and patiently (but strategically) killed all the ghosts, so I could take my time with the hearts.

I'm happy to report that I made it all the way to the phallus map! May I ask, what does the 2nd/3rd map say? Harold OPRJI?

Well done. I had a good time giving the levels a competitive go. Those swords are really well designed: not too many spread across the map. If  you time it right, you won't need the other, but mess, up and start all the way at the beginning. Risk and reward done right!

Also made me recall the fond times I've had with gamemaker. Specifically the fact that you can hold Left/Right while pressing Up/Down to move dynamically, but not the other way round! XD

Keep up the good work!

Edited: for commas, and punctuation.


This was really cute! I'm awful at pacman, but it looks cool and runs well I do get stuck at a lot of the hearts in single tiles, but I think you do in pacman as well


yeah pac-man was hardcore, so is pac-harold hahaha
