When searching for this years topic, i was interupted by my daughter asking me for a version of Pac-Man for her Nintendo DS. Search completed.
The pac-dots inside the labyrinth contain the lines:
“What do you get if you multiply six by nine?” – Reference to 42 (taken from the TV show)
“Practice Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty”
“Cramhints” – encription key (C,R,A,M,H,I,N,T,S=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) for the two names hidden in the high scores.
The number 42 is also included as the total sum of the bonus items (4200 points); the current year is to be found inside the power pellets.
