First, a good hint to get super points: Collect the energizers on the left side and shoot the ball to the left kicker to get to the video game part.

Then go waiting right below the tunnel entrance and trick the ghosts to the tunnel. Then get the energizer and eat 'em all. From this you get 32 thousand points. It doesn't work very well if you haven't collected "Tunnel Speed" from the right outlane. You should have at least tunnel speed 3-4 to get this trick working. Then go to the middle of the maze where the fruit appears (if you have earned banana you get 50K each time). Then just go back to the pinball table, get the energizers and do it again. My high score in the real machine was over 4 mil when I used this trick continuously. It works very well in this VPM version too. Already got over 2 million points.

This trick doesn't work in the 3rd maze. The game actually has only 3 different mazes, but they change colors, and the seventh maze has invisible walls. Happy eating. :)

The ENERGIZERS feature:
Energizer is earned when:
Spelling PACMAN, which is accomplished by knocking down a drop target for one letter, or a loop ball for two letters, after an energizer has been spotted.

The FRUITS feature:
Spelling FRUITS qualifies the maze for a fruit and the following ten after every time fruits is spelled out. Making fruits also lites the spot center arrow light.

The TUNNEL feature:
Spelling TUNNEL qualifies the maze for open side tunnels. Spelling tunnel then after will speed up Pacman through the tunnel. Up to 8 different speed levels are available. No. 1-8 are displayed by the tunnel to indicate the qualified speed.

Dip Switch #8 Tunnel qualified at start of game
On: Liberal / Off: Conservative

The SAUCER feature:
Making saucer lites the appropriate spinner, the evens-up lane and spots a FRUITS or TUNNEL letter. Making saucer when flashing will switch the game over to the maze.

The EXTRA BABY feature:
Knocking down the center target:
1st time scores 500 points and starts the 7 seconds timer
2nd time scores 2000 points and starts the 6 seconds timer
3rd time scores 4000 points and starts the 5 seconds timer
4th time scores 8000 points and starts the 4 seconds timer
5th time scores 8000 points and starts the 3 seconds timer
6th time scores 10K and Extra Ball
Beating the high score to date also awards the extra ball.
