Hi Lewblue,

Smashing comment Lew. I `aint insulted, just too damned old to be in tune.
I`ve had my moments of excitement and adrenaline pumping, but not with video games.

Google are so good at recognising significant events and changing their logo to suit.

Mind you on this one, I have`nt a clue how to play it. I had a go and scored a 12 and a 9, but how is a mystery.

Best wishes Lew
John Bull

the object of the game is to use the arrow keys and guide the yellow circle guy (pacman) through the maze. you need to eat all those little dots without getting hit by one of the ghosts. when you eat one of the BIG dots, the ghosts become blue and run away, when the ghosts are blue you can eat them!

I love Pac-Man, but my connection is to slow to play.
