Pac-Man is not a smart game

Before quitting the game, try to think about that probably the algorithms in 1980 were not so smart and there is a slight chance you might be smarter than the game. The most important thing about the game is how the ghosts turn corners. Have in mind the fact that although they have eyes, the ghosts cannot really see you so you are not being chased. The most effective way to get away from a ghost is to run in places where these ghosts have to make a decision. By that, I mean that they have to decide between turning left or right or chasing you. Most of the times, they will not chase you.

Always stay in those places on the map where you can take a lot of routes, the ghosts will do the same.

Go get those points

Now that you`ve learned how to avoid being killed, it is time to have fun in this game. You can start a contest between your friends so you be the first to prove that you are a master. When it comes to points, try to gather as many points as you can using the power-ups. Generally, it is a good idea to clear the map in quarters.

Another thing you should consider is that you do not have to take the power up if there are less than 3 ghosts around you. Two ghosts are easy to avoid. Last but not least, using one power-up you should try and eat all four ghosts because they will give you a lot of points, 200, 400, 800 and 1600. This way you can get ahead of your friends.
