Arcade Game Series: Ms. Pac-Man
Arcade Game Series: Ms. Pac-Man is a revamp of the classic 1982 Ms. Pac-Man arcade game by Midway Manufacturing. Similar to its predecessor Pac-Man, the game involves maneuvering through a maze, eating pellets for points while avoiding the four ghosts which will end the player's life upon contact. Eating a Power Pellet will cause the ghosts to turn blue, allowing the player to eat them for extra points, while fruits appear as bonus items that can be eaten for more points. Unlike its predecessor, Ms. Pack-Man features four different mazes, more warp tunnels, and changes in the ghosts' behavioral pattern.
The original 1982 Ms. Pac-Man was the most commercially and critically successful arcade games in its year, and has continued to be ported onto multiple consoles.
This is a high 1-star rating, as some of the trophies can be rather tricky; especially for those who have never played Ms. Pac-Man or even regular Pac-Man before. However, a save exploit allows you to try over and over for whichever trophy you are going for.
If using the save exploit, the Platinum can be earned in just a few hours, depending on your skills.
It should be known that a "Save Exploit" is available if you're having any trouble with some of the trophies. At any point in your game, select "Save & Quit" which will return you to the Main Menu. From here, back up your save to either the PS+ Cloud if you are a PS+ member, or via USB. Then simply continue playing, and reload your previous save if you died or made an error. This exploit will come in handy when going for some of the more challenging trophies.
Also, under the game's setting menu, you can enable Round Select, as well as add more lives to your game. To start off, simply play the game and work towards clearing Round 17. This will award you with several trophies for clearing certain rounds, including the Round 17 Cleared trophy. Remember to use the Save Exploit if you're having trouble. Also, there are a number of trophies related to eating the various fruits that appear, so be sure to go after those as well, if possible.
Once that's done, it's simply a matter of mopping-up the remaining trophies. This may include the Perfect trophy, which requires eating two fruits and all four ghosts in succession four times in a single round.
