Here’s a Baby Pac-Man Arcade game for sale avoids ghosts and eats his way through a maze devoid of power pellets. These power-ups can only be earned by dropping into the pinball section. When a ball drains in the pinball section, play returns to the video mode.
This was the first video/pinball combo game from Bally (Granny and the Gators being the second). In the video mode, you control Baby Pac-Man in a familiar Pac-Man like maze, gobbling dots and fruit while avoiding ghosts that are very smart and very fast. The red ghost actually moves faster than Baby Pac-Man. The first thing the seasoned Pac-Man player notices is that there are no power pellets initially on the screen! The player must earn power pellets by exiting to the pinball section.
In the pinball section, the player can advance the fruit that is displayed on the level, increase the speed of Baby Pac-Man as he runs through the two side exits and, most importantly, earn power pellets (one to four) by spelling “PacMan” or hitting the loop ball that resides behind the drop targets at the top of the playfield.
