Pac-Man is attempting to reach his breakfast. Hopefully, he won't be too full after consuming all the pellets on his way through the maze. Pac-Man creatively avoids the 4 ghosts: Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde on his search for his Power Pellet Cereal. He's up for a challenge....Game On!!
Our Step List
The marble is manually released into the funnel and rubber tubing.
Marble flies out of marble tubing and hits car causing the car to roll down the ramp.
The car hits the cup holding the stationary ball which swings and hits the next ball.
The last ball on Newton’s cradle swings upward forcing the Pacman Nintendo games to fall in a domino-like effect.
The last cartridge falls and the attached ruler sets the next ball in motion.
The ball travels down a series of ramps until finally falling into a cup, causing a pulley to be put in motion.
The cup on the other side of the pulley hits the ball on the top of the ramp.
The ball rolls down the ramp causing a series of weights to fall off the side.
The weights fall down while pulling another weight in the upward direction that will hit the cardboard tube putting a car into motion.
The car falls out of the tube acting as a pulley attached to the cereal box. The cereal falls into the bowl.
