To move to the next level, you must eat every pill and energizer in the maze.
A bonus appears when you have eaten 1/3 and 2/3 of the pills and energizers. It disappears after a few seconds (10 seconds at the first level, but it decreases as the level increases) if you have not eaten it.
As the level increases, both your speed and the ghosts speed increase. However, the ghosts will be more and more faster than you.
If you get in touch with a ghost, you lose a life, and the current level restarts (but the eaten pills and energizer do not reappear).
If you are in the line of sight of a ghost (that is to say : no wall between the ghost, and both of you go to the same direction), the ghost will hunt you. Otherwise, the ghosts have a random moving.
When you eat an energizer, the ghosts slow down and you can eat them. If you eat a ghost, it goes back to its home and its normal behaviour. After a few seconds (10 seconds at the first level, but it decreases as the level increases), the ghosts that have not been eaten go back to their normal behaviour.
You win points when eating an item:
Table 3.1. Item values
Pill 10 points Energizer 20 points Bonus Current level * 100 points Ghost It depends on the number of ghosts you have eaten since the last energizer was eaten:
1st ghost: 100 points
2nd ghost: 200 points
3rd ghost: 400 points
4th ghost: 800 points
You get a life more every 10,000 points you win.
