It’s true, the game itself has no more depth than a shallow bowl of mashed potatoes, but the beauty of this one is not in its depth or intricacy.
It’s in its sheer comprehensiveness.
All of those are part of the myman suite, which may just be the world’s most comprehensive assault on unifying every variation on a single game ever created.
I will tell you that the AUR version draws in a few X-ish dependencies, like xterm, but it will run without X.
I will also tell you that the “variation” generally picks the map, and the “size” flag usually picks the rendering method, whether it’s drawing ascii characters or extrapolating the classic bitmaps.
After that, I can’t imagine what else you would need to know. After all: It’s just Pac-Man. 🙄
