Game Story:

To progress to the next stage, Ms. Pac-Man must eat all of the dots in a maze. She's being followed by killer ghosts, but she can eat them if she eats one of the four large dots. Eating the fruits and snacks that appear while wandering the maze earns you bonus points.

For Australian gamers, it's almost a year since BotA 2021 when we last played this. During this time up in Sydney I got to meet @OOO and we played a few games of doubles on Ms Pacman. Good times! I had to smile when I saw he'd nominated this. I wonder who holds the 1989 Bar's Ms Pacman high score now and if the original cabinet is back in action? I certainly hope so. 

Wonderfully, the game is set to return for BotA in September 2022. So this is good practice. Bartronica now has a working Ms Pacman from Geelong's sister bar (Ms Bartronica) which is temporarily closed whilst a new venue is located. It's currently set to 5+1 at 15k. If any MGL'ers want to meet up at Bartronica and play a few games on a friday night, let me know! Cheers! 🍻

Not much further but a couple of bananas made all the difference. I really want a PB on this game. 🙂 I'm anticipating some big scores from CrazyKongFan, DBH, Creech and OOO.

Was it luck, finally opening the bottle of Gin I won a few weeks ago playing pinball or a combination of both?

Who knows but it's an improvement on a Pac game and I'll take it.

Hey Rob, didn't you get 98k or something last time we played? I always seem to make too many mistakes on the third-fourth chase boards. 

No matter how many times I watch Rick Forthergill masterfully manipulating the ghosts using the hold positions and grouping, I don't seem to grasp the techniques and end up reverting to a random mash-up of ideas. 🙂

I'd forgotten about that score. 98,160 to be exact.

I've tried watching people group the ghosts on both this and regular Pacman and unlike Burgertime how to do it just doesn't sink in. Maybe one day it will
