Mac Multipac is a pacman emulator. It was originally written for DOS, I ported it to the Macintosh. It can handle the following games:

• Pac-Man
• Ms. Pac-Man
• Puckman
• Hangly-Man
• Crush-Roller

Source Code is available.

The current version is 8.1.

NOTE: While Multipac was cool in its time, it is now obsolete. Actually, it became "MAME" which has got to be the coolest arcade emulator out there. So Multipac is not of much use any more, unless you want to run at 3x3 pixel size, or unless you are having a bit of a nostalgia kick and want to see where MAME came from.

What's New:
Sound imroved immensly
Sound is now on by default
Added menu command "Make Pac-Man go really really fast"
Added new key-mappings for people without extended keyboards, or left handed people.
Added new nifty about box.
Now the program is a FAT binary. But the performance is so bad on 68K machines that I don't know if its even worth it.
Added support for the really awful pac-man clone "Pirahna".
