Haha, maybe he tried to give you the second to worst rating, but you had put average after sucks and messed up the order from best to worst and he got confused Very Happy.

dan added the Average for me... i canot mod pollz.... also... i have Needs improvement.. that is second to worst... anyways... someoen did that to all FP contest submitions... so it was and evil person...

like common... who would say that my game SUCKS... realy... it may not be the greatest game in the world... but it dont suck...

maverick gave me the needs improv because my installer failed to work properly...... i am a gInstall noob... ... i am currently trying to learn it better so i can add a complete GUI like in the Uninstaller... but its rough

that is awesome. best game i have yet to play in turing, seriously.

great music and sound effects, and your voice, though it gets kindof annoying, adds to the professionalism of it. The gameplay rocks, its very smooth, its fast, nice graphics, nice intro.

the only bad things:
the ending effects of the rectangles takes a long time, as well, the black rectangles take a long time. and only one other thing, the enemies can go through walls, but it would be hard to keep them on a path, or at least difficult.

all in all, an amazing game, and you should start on a nother game, cause im sure it would be equallyu awesome.

edit:
oops, my highscore: 77 for time, 1930 for score
there was no banana Sad

ty jonos... now all i need is one more highscore... and the table will be full...

the banana apears at 500 points... and stays for roughly 20 seconds..its not very acurate cuz i dont have it on real time... only on game time...
i am thinking of ways to do it tho,... like

bananatimer := total time (min*60 + counter)
if totaltime (min*60+counter) = bananatimer + 10 then
% draw a box over banana and call it a day.. lol...
else
get score if your on top of it..
end if

but....meh... i will decrease the delay for ending visuals... thx jonos

and maybe i will do that... also... i might do that for the killevil dude timer.. as that is not very acurate either... i tried.. but meh.. ive worked enough on pacman... i will start making my next game.... i started development when i was a nooby and i stoped cuz i needed to lear more... but pac man was FUn to program... so i made it isntead... i should finish my Text Twist game... (its a remake of the one by yahoo)...
now that i can program...

and i will check out that evasive manuvers game...

now... If you dont like the idea of installing my game... even though you can trust me not to screw with your comp, here is the game, without an installer, in zip format... (someone suggested i do that)


PS: i updated it a bit, removing the Stop Music Question, and replacing it with PM me at compsci... since music will not stop anyways cuz its looped,
and added more high scores...

fixed a glitch where, after i made the boss key and pause key work.. taht made sound on / off not work and all sound effects not work, also made it turn off sound when you pause / boss key, also fixed it so ty for trying program plays sound, i had it too close to Music.PlayFileStop b4.. also i made it ask you if you want to open the read first, from within the game

i also updated the installer one too.. on the first page

I like this one better, because of the pause and because of my name in the game.

Very nice. However, I would like to see some more work, because I think there is still room for improvements. My thoughts on the gameplay:

1. In the real Pacman, the baddies dont go through the walls. I think this would be a major improvement to gameplay, although yes, it would mean lots of work.

2. When I played the enemies moved far too slow to be any sort of threat. In the 0:55 it took for me to win they had moved less than 1cm from their starting places; and it was hard to get the dots in the corners because the baddies were on top of them almost.

3. Your effects are nice, but I think you should speed them up a bit. My PC is 2.4ghz, and i suspect if it was slower I would have to go with the slow option, or the wipe effects would take a while to complete.
