Games A lot of interesting stuff on the internals of one of the greatest games of all time: Pac-Man. First, recreating Pac-Man in a day. Second, a very detailed look at the artificial intelligence of each of the game's ghosts. As it turns out, each ghost had its own 'character' and approached Pac-Man in its own unique way. Third, the Pac-Man Dossier, the most detailed study of the game ever.

I used to play Pacmania on RISC OS machines... I remember it being okay, but not much else.

It wasn't anything special, but it was more fun (IMO) than the original Pac-Man and certainly better looking.

Being able to jump over ghosts added a fun dimension to the gameplay.
