Sequencing Games: PacMan

Sequencing Games: PacMan

Can you sequence games? You bet you can; although how useful that would be in business I don't know. In contrast, in my early days, I used games such as Solitaire to teach beginners the basic principles of the interface, mouse, drag n drop, etc.

Pacman is one of my all time favourites and I spent many an hour playing this in the pub and so I decided to sequence the game to see how it coped.

PacMan-2 I chose Pacman because it was a good starting point for two reasons.

1.     It does not require any special hardware (DirectX10 for example) or disk protection systems.

2.     It wasn’t designed to run on Vista, so to really test it, I used Vista virtual machines for the sequencer and client J

The sequencing went very smoothly, Pacman Installed and ran without flaw, as it did on the Vista machine.

PacMan-1 

Although Pacman is a simply game it does demonstrate that even programs developed many years ago, not intended for the Vista platform, can easily be sequenced and deployed.
