Play Pacman in Excel

PacmannewformDo you still remember about Pacman? The old school game that you play while you are still young. I am no big fan of Pacman game but I enjoyed play the game.

The game is fun and you must always caution which way that you choose or you will get caught by 4 ghosts known as Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde that always chasing you.

Anyway did you know that you also can play Pacman in Excel?

A Japanese man, Nobuya Chikada called himself as Japanese Excel Crazy Guy has created a Pacman game in Excel. But the game only works in Excel 97 and Excel 2000. Here are screenshots of the game:

All actions are expressed by rewriting of a cell background color.
Each one of cells as a dot, and move it by make cell’s background color high-speed rewriting.
Although I did not think it’s possiblele, but now it’s possiblele by the favor of the
improvement in a performance of a personal computer.
The window zoom is 10%, so the each cell can not be seen. But it is A CELL.
