Games: La venganza del fantasma by marcosjl

fantasma1La venganza del fantasma (The ghost’s revenge) is Pac-Man mini-clone written by marcosjl in only 14 lines of Commodore 64 BASIC.

Instructions: Once you RUN the game, we must wait about 20 seconds while it unpacks (while doing so you can see an animated character in the upper left corner of the screen ) and then wait while it draws the entire maze. Once is finished drawing the screen, the game begins immediately. The player (represented on screen by a character who chews with his mouth open without stopping) moves using the Joystick in Port 2 and must eat all the dashes he encounters in his path. In the same maze there is a ghost, the spirit of a player who lost the game and returned with a vengeance. This specter will chase the player around the screen and there is no a countermeasure that can be taken to combat it, unlike other games where you can face the ghosts eating magic pills. The only alternative in this case is to flee. The game ends when the ghost eats the player (the display will show a message “BREAK IN 9″ which is a way of saying that the ghost won). Should you avoid being eaten by the ghost the game will end when the universe reaches maximum entropy and enters a state of complete thermodynamic equilibrium which is equal to the termal death of the entire universe, or when the player gets bored, whichever comes first. Eating all available dashes will give great satisfaction to the player, but nothing more.
