    As a kid, I loved playing a spin-off version of Ms. Pacman that we had stored on a zip disk. I have had no luck scouring the internet to find any trace of the game, and so am turning to the good people of the MacRumors forum.

    Here is what I know about the game:

    - Ms Pacman wore a purple hat in the game
    - I played the game on an old mac, but don't remember which one specifically. It was pre blue and white g3, and was 233mhz or slower.
    - The player had a time-limit to complete each level of the game
    - The game featured power-ups that could be used by pressing the space-bar, such as gaining additional time or moving faster.
    - If you ran out of time, a deep voice play over the speakers and say "out of time"
    - A rainbow colored ball would pop-up occasionally in a level (that you could eat to gain power-ups I think)
    - There were cut-scenes between each level featuring ms. pacman and the ghosts.

    This was a truly fun game, and help in identifying it is much appreciated!!:)

    I think the game you're looking for is Maniac! Here's a video if you're not sure.
