Game Details

Instead of Pac-Man, you guide a ladybug through a maze. There is the added element of swinging doors that gives the game a substantially different dimension. Revolving doors can be used strategically to change maze layout and block bugs' paths.

Green partitions throughout the maze indicate that portion of a wall can swing, changing the maze design and proving very effective at trapping the pursing enemies.

Skeletons in the place of some of the power pills must be avoided. Running into them turns you into an angel which flies off the screen.

Another nice feature: When the border around the edge of the maze is filled with color, an enemy is about to be released.
