I decided to fool around for a couple evenings and decided to make a janky version of Pacman, and here it is! Named Macpan because it was made on a Mac, this file resembles Pacman, but has its own twist. Type help Macpan to see a detailed description. I think I've handled nearly all of the bugs, with the exception of having to press keys AFTER the game to undo the stacked pauses (also, an empty figure may appear); however, this DOES NOT affect gameplay, so I decided against trying to figure it out. Also, the movement is based off of GUI buttons rather than the arrow keys (can be changed, but I decided to go with buttons), and you'll find that the ghosts pause their movement when you do, which is sort of a handicap for having to use buttons rather than arrow keys! To reiterate, this is a janky-for-fun project, so don't expect elegant coding! Also, I didn't think it mattered too much, but I can always include number of dots "eaten" in the win/loss summaries, but that's left out for now.
Hope you all enjoy, please refrain from plagiarizing the entirety of this code (looking at you students' with final projects)!
