MaxMan is "slightly similar to PAC-MAN" says the included documentation, which is pretty accurate, since it's not really a clone of the popular maze game. It does have mazes and "gremlins" (ghosts) and "coins" (dots) and "energy apples" (power pellets) to collect, similar to Pac-Man. However the coins are not laid out in a consistent way, and each you collect gives you a bit of energy back. Collecting the energy apples allows you a brief period of turning the tables on the gremlins. When you die, your ghost lives on as a "grim reaper" which becomes another enemy that you must avoid. Some interesting variations on what has become a standard formula, presented with text-mode ASCII characters.
