MaKeyMaKey+Ms Pac Man = Retro Love, MAKERBAR HACKERSPACE

Introduction: MaKeyMaKey+Ms Pac Man = Retro Love, MAKERBAR HACKERSPACE

Hello All,

We're using our MaKeyMaKey to play an arcade classic... Yup.. That Hungry Yellow Lady, Ms Pac-Man

Fall in love again with that classic lady Ms Pac-Man as she eats all the dots and ghosts she can find on her quest to find her way threw the maze.

Basic story-line is this:

Ms. Pac-Man must eat all the dots in a maze in order to advance to the next stage. She's chased by killer ghosts but she can eat them while powered up after eating one of four large dots located on each stage. Bonus points are awarded for eating the fruits and snacks that appear and wander the maze.

The game is a lot like Pac-Man except that it has four different mazes that change once every two to four screens instead of just one maze throughout the entire game. Also the fruits and prizes walk around the maze instead of appearing at the same spot in the middle of the maze. These bonus items include cherries, strawberries, peaches, pretzels, apples, pears and bananas.

Really easy to get started playing right away, the MaKeyMaKey simulates the arrow key being pressed on a keyboard which we'll use to play our game in the browser. That's it, No really it's that easy. Connect your MaKeyMaKey to your computer load up the website from the link below, and as long as part of your fingers are touching the buttons and ground, you'll simulate the key press and guide Ms. Pac-Man to all the dots and ghosts she can eat. Enjoy!
