This tag is for questions related to the arcade game Ms. Pac-Man.

Ms. Pac-Man was developed and released by Bally/Midway Manufacturing in 1982 (also the publisher of the original Pac-Man).

Game play is very similar to that of the original Pac-Man. The female protagonist navigates the maze, eats pellets, eats bonus fruit, avoids the ghost (or chases the ghosts for extra points, after eating a "power pellet" that temporarily turns the ghosts blue).

Differences from the original game include several different maze patterns, ghosts with semi-random motion instead of predictable patterns, and fruit bouncing around the maze instead of appearing in the center of the maze.
