We already mentioned that the goal of Pacs was to collect more apples than
the other team. Apples are one kind of element that can be found inside
the game. Totally there are three kinds of elements:
The following rules appy to elements :
Apples can be picked up by an Eaters only. Each time a eater
brings an apple to one of the two home cells 3 point is added to
the score of the team.
Bonus's are meant to be picked up by Explorers. With a bonus, an
explorer can put a mine in a cell of its choice (except home cells). Picking
up a bonus gives your team 1 point.
Mines are put down by explorers and can kill
any player when the player moves onto a cell which contains a mine!
But a player can move over a mine, like a jump. A player is only
killed if the stops on top of a mine. When you die on a mine the other
team gets 2 points. The mine is then removed from the Arena.
when a mine explodes, all walls adjacent to that cell explode as well and
are removed from the arena...
these walls are then 'given' to the same player of the opponant team, who
can put them along his path (see here)
Elements can not appear in the home cells of the different teams.
There can be at most 1 element per cell.
Elements don't move, they can either be picked up (food or bonus) or explode
Apples and bonus's are generated at an average rate of 1 each 2 turns (with
random variations). They will only appear in empty cells, at the beginning
of the turn.
When there are no more apples or bonus's left, one is generated immediately
at the beginning of the turn.
