Pacman plus is a pacman clone with several additional features.  Notably, it uses the A star algorithm to allow a competitive opponent when there is nobody else around.  Also it is extremely extendable and open sourced, with the main section being well documented.  Additionally, a map editor is planned, although
unusual for pacman, to allow other game modes / maps. A few screenshots are below, although improved graphics are also planned.  

[size=16pt]Windows v0.1[/size]

Source is now on GitHub, along with documentation. Source link updated.

To run and get the error messages, use run.bat.  In windows command prompt right-click and press 'mark', select the error and right click to copy.


Three different modes are available, which are:

Built to Last - Try to avoid the monsters in the middle while aquiring points
1v1 - Classic pacman, play in multiplayer mode against another person or AI, first to 2000 points wins.
Tag - Try to tag the other person, the longer you are not it the more points you get. The person with the most points at end of game wins

Each of these modes has two (Three planned) control settings:

SinglePlayer - WASD / Arrow Keys to move, play against a bot.
Multiplayer on one Keyboard - WASD for player 1, Arrow Keys for player 2
(PLANNED) Multiplayer over LAN - Play against an opponent over LAN

Currently only have a Windows Download Desktop Application, however just replace the LWJGL Natives with the appropriate system to run.  If any specific systems get requested, I'll put one up for it.

Change Log:

v0.1: Initial Release for Windows

I only tried the Tag game-mode. It didn't work very well. What game-mode do you recommend, to get me hooked? Smiley

Tag mode is extremely fun when playing against another player, whereas 1v1 or built to last are more optimized towards the AI.
