_Patuman_ is a shareware Pac-Man clone with a vaguely nightmarish aesthetic.
It is controlled with the keyboard, using space to start the game and the
cursor keys to move around.
You play the role of Patuman, a yellow-green face wearing sunglasses in a
labyrinth full of small yellow pellets. In the center of the labyrinth is a
zone where several monsters live. You cannot enter the monster zone, but the
monsters can leave it, and chase you around the labyrinth. If they catch you,
you will lose a life. If you lose all your lives, the game is over. As well as
the smaller yellow pellets, there are a few big pellets that allow you to
temporarily eat the monsters. The monsters are normally a color, like blue or
cyan, but while you can eat them they all change to white. When you collect
all the pellets in the labyrinth, you start a new level.
The game attempts to automatically detect the best speed to run at as it
starts up. You can also adjust the speed using menu items in the application
