Namco's 1982 arcade hit can now be taken on the road with Ms. Pac-Man for the Atari Lynx. Players control the yellow character as she gobbles dots (worth ten points apiece) inside a maze while avoiding four ghosts trying to catch her. If either ghost manages to touch Ms. Pac-Man, she'll lose one of her three lives. There are also four energizers in the corners of the maze allowing the character to eat ghosts for a limited amount of time. Eat all four for the maximum bonus of 1,600 points! Once you clear the maze of all dots, play will resume on a faster level.
Besides munching on dots and energizers, Ms. Pac-Man can also eat bouncing fruit for bonus points: cherries, strawberries, oranges, pretzels, apples, pears or bananas. Reach 10,000 points and you'll earn an extra life, and after clearing the eighth level, random fruit will appear earning you between 200-5,000 points. The game includes the four mazes from the arcade game as well as 21 all-new mazes featuring an extra power-up: lightning bolts. Grab the bouncing bolt and you can zip through the maze at high speeds. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
