Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots

by Paul Strauss
Advertisement

I know, I know. The year is 2007 and I’m writing two stories in a row about Pac-Man. But I really couldn’t resist this one. Pac-Txt is a great mashup between the classic 1980s arcade game and Zork. And if you happen to be under the age of 30, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about.

Web programmer Richard Moore coded up this great text-only version of Namco’s arcade classic. Who needs fancy 8-bit pixel graphics and a joystick, when you can let your QWERTY keys direct Pac-Man down corridors and chew through his power pills?

I was never able to stumble my way to any blue ghosts, but I did manage to bump into a couple of walls. Wokka-Wokka-Wokka.
