Visually absolutely awesome, and the gameplay is a really cool addition to classic pacman. Not sure it changes all that much, but a cool achievement in the time frame nonetheless.

I've never been a big fan of Pacman, but this game sold me on it. Pacman + stealth is an amazing combo. It is difficult to improve upon a classic but this definitely did it. Graphics are nice, lighting effects are great, audio is a perfect fit. I can't really think of anything to complain about ;)

Cool advance on a classic concept, stealth mode itself can become a bit of a blind sport later on but it's fun while it lasts. I totally dig the lighting effect you got going, it straight up improves classic Pac-man by making ghosts and Pac-man more readable!

Nice entry however it is just a copy of another game with an addon :(. That said you have shown alot of skill in your work here so please carry on the good work but try to create something unique!

This is a novel take on the classic Pac-Man formula - although it's very strange that you didn't implement 'classic' Pac-Man movement (he should always be moving).

The main problem is that the pellets respawn, so there's really no sense of accomplishment while playing. Still very fun for a little while, though.

(Oh, and I managed to score 1844 before I made a stupid mistake and ran into a ghost!)

3288 on Mode stealth. At first I thought it was too easy but it got interesting quite soon. Great visuals and sound (altough the sound gets a bit annoying)!

@FloatingGhost: whoa thanks for the notice. Apparently router issues fixing going on. I switched it to an alternative host for now.
@every one else: Thanks for the all the comments and thanks so much for playing!

Beautiful game, and the lighting was interesting. I think I might have preferred distinct levels instead of endless play though - and as others have said, the respawning pellets could make it a bit easy - at one point I was just running around with tons of ghosts refilling on blue pellets. Still, only made it to 2510.

The lights look really awesome. Controls are good. It is a nice variation of the original game.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
