A ROM of an apparently damaged game board found locked in a safe in the back of an old arcade. Gameplay appears relatively consistent with the classic "PacMan". Primary differences are:

  • Player cannot see what PacMan cannot see
  • Ghosts behaviors are... unique.
  • Players who finish the original arcade game board suffer severe psychological and occasionally physiological trauma, up to and including death of the subject (ROM's effect is significantly reduced).

WASD/Arrows: Move PacMan
