The main villains of the popular 1980s PAC-MAN™ arcade game are as iconic as the main character himself. There are four different GHOST characters in the original game that the PAC-MAN™ player must avoid while collecting all of the PAC-DOTS. When PAC-MAN™ eats a POWER PELLET the GHOSTS turn dark blue and PAC-MAN™ can then eat them for increasing point values. If PAC-MAN™ ate every GHOST prior to the POWER PELLET running out, they would double in value from 200 to 400 to 800 and finally 1,600 points on the last GHOST eaten. If a non-edible GHOST touches PAC-MAN™, however, the player loses a life!
Who are the members of the GHOST GANG? BLINKY, the leader of the GHOSTS, is quick and very persistent! PINKY looks cute, but do not be fooled! PINKY is second in command and lethal! INKY is fast but a bit shy. CLYDE is the endless wanderer who likes to explore every corner of the maze! These colorful characters with their unique behaviors are a key part of what has made PAC-MAN™ such an enjoyable game!
