Gobbler is a 1981 computer game for the Apple II family of computers, published by On-Line Systems (later to become Sierra Entertainment).


Gobbler is a direct clone of the popular Pac-Man arcade game, with gameplay closely paralleling that of the original. The player uses the arrow keys to move the character left and right, and the A and Z keys to move up or down. Each dot is worth five points, while pieces of fruit (cherries, an apple and a lime) are each worth 200. Consuming the white pellets makes the four ghosts vulnerable for a short time, during which they appear green and can be eaten (earning 200 points for the first, 400 for the second, etc.).
