Put the new monster objects in the second room Now make changes to make the level more difficult- make the monsters move faster, redesign the room making it more difficult to get food and avoid monsters, add more monsters, make pacman go slower etc etc 26 PILLS!: PILLS! Think about what you would need to do to add pills to the game! & see if you can make a table showing events & actions for the pacman objects when he eats a pill. 27
