Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

Megabug

From CoCopedia - The Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Megabug is a loose clone of Pac-Man written by Steve Bjork.

Differences with Pac-Man

The maze is much larger and more complex. The player character generates a trail behind him which the enemy bugs will follow if they run across it, forcing the player to double back on his trail, lay false and dead-end trails, and so on. There is no equivalent of the "power pill" or bonus items.

Sound

The plays a tune based on "La Chucaracha" before each turn or life. At each player death, a digitized voice says "We gotcha!" and the large bugs framing the screen dance in celebration. Unlike many CoCo games with digitized voices, no additional equipment is necessary.
