Megabug

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.
