How to play:

Pac-Mania is an isometric maze game. The player controls Pac-Man, a yellow circular creature that must eat all of the pellets in each stage while avoiding the five colored ghosts - Blinky, Pinky, Inky, Clyde and Sue. Eating large Power Pellets will cause the ghosts to turn blue and flee, allowing Pac-Man to eat them for bonus points and send them to the house in the middle of the stage. Clearing the stage of pellets will allow Pac-Man to move to the next.

New to this game is the ability to jump over the ghosts, allowing Pac-Man to evade capture by the ghosts. Later areas of the game will introduce two new ghosts - the green ghost Funky and the steel gray ghost Spunky - which also have the ability to jump. While Pac-Man can still jump over Funky, it is impossible to jump over Spunky. Eating a certain number of pellets will cause a bonus items to appear in the middle of the stage, which Pac-Man can eat up for points. Some of these items will increase Pac-Man's movement speed or double the point values of blue ghosts.
