On the left side of the labyrinth, there is a speed meter. When you begin to consume dots, this will begin to rise. This is set to zero at the start of a game. You can keep increasing your speed until you’re able to control Pac-Man’s speed, or till you hit the max speed limit.


You can also use the powers on the left side of the screen to accelerate yourself. When you eat a Power Pellet, pressing the A button doubles the movement speed, allowing you to easily traverse the maze. Also, keep in mind your attack will be decreased by 75% while using this speed power-up. So it’s up to if you need to use this power-up or not.
