    This was recorded on January 12, 2020. Settings are shown at the beginning of the video. The record run starts at 13:48 with the final score of 83090 and the words GAME OVER shown at 26:52. I end the video by displaying my TG & HS profiles as I will be submitting this run to both sites.

    The original video size is 1.9GB so I shrunk this one down to 480p (about 380MB).

    I had put this one aside after setting the previous mark of 79940 but I picked it up earlier this week & decided to harden my arteries once more. This version is especially difficult because Blinky uses steroids & is capable of catching you on a straightaway WHEN YOU’RE NOT EATING ANY DOTS. If Atarisoft had drug testing back in the day, then Blinky would have failed.

    You were out of breath at the end. I suggest some cardio. LOL

    Good job, man! I like when people reach their goals.

    Accepted!

    Nicely done. That Act 3 maze is by far the worst one, I've found. So many spots to get caught in. So nice work to get so far through it.

    I should be glad you don't have a 7800, you'd take my score down!

    Also... the C64 version is more authentic than the PS1 and N64 versions. :)

    FYI: I didn't receive reply notifications for my submission. I only received the Like/Thank notifications. I have no idea why that was the case. So I'm consolidating my replies here.


    @Rage - ...OR Atarisoft should test the ghosts. (The correct answer is: Yes, they should test the ghosts for drugs. Call it a "random test".)

    @Barthax - The ghosts become quite relentless in their pursuit. It makes for some unexpected tension.

    @GibGirl - I find your analysis of the C64 version interesting because I believe it's harder than the arcade version. (At least, from what I recall.)

    Those two versions I mention LOOK like Ms. Pac-Man, SOUND like Ms. Pac-Man... but they actually have Pac-Man ghost AI. Discovered that recently, after my hardcore time on the 7800 version. So there's a fundamental difference in how they play.
