Can we use the (with speedup hack) instead of the cheat?


Yes, I believe they're both the same. Someone, correct me if I'm wrong. Use either one. I just tested them and she seems to go just as fast in both versions. :)

OK, this is a tiny bit harder than I remembered. You can't just zip right through the boards as fast as possible without missing the second fruit, (which could be a banana on levels 7 and up.) Also, you have have to watch out for the monsters' reversals. They nailed me twice in this game.


I hope to make it to the kill screen some time this week, which I've never done before mainly because I hate this version of Ms. Pac-man with a passion.

Ms PacMan - (bonus) - 142,980






I think I pasted this video properly. If it doesn't play, can you guys let me know?


I wanted to do the bonus game for this week first. As far as turbo is concerned, I think a kill screen will be very possible for me. The only thing that would keep me from the kill is accidently ramming into the ghosts, which is always a possibility when you are travelling around the board this fast.


I share the same opinion as Fallout. I also wished that we were playing normal speed Ms. PacMan. But the bonus game will do just fine, I guess.

Bonus score: 146,010.




See you tomorrow, M.A.M.E. Offender. :)


M.O. is my brother, so I find this particularly humourous (Mike, time to sharpen your pencils, tee hee hee).


I'm not even going to bother submitting a score for the bonus; turbo only:

I don't know if I'm going to waste anymore time on this, stupid mistakes and boredom killed me. I lost one life when a banana was on the board for heaven's sake.


432,400. Level 67, I think.




Deteacher, 146,010 was my updated bonus score. :)

That's the end of this week's competition. I thought folks would enjoy the steroid-infused version of Ms. Pac-Man more than they did. I like it because it's the only way I can score big points on the game. :)


Perhaps the classic alien shooter, Gorf, will be more to everyone's liking. :) Game on!
