Simon has recreated the CodingGame.com’s Spring Challenge 2020 PacMan game in p5.js to be able to work on the AI versions after the spring challenge has finished.

The PacMan is built on top of a Maze Generator, here’s an example of one of Simon’s maze generators and solvers: https://editor.p5js.org/simontiger/sketches/vj75cHYkf
Simon had been taking part in the Spring Challenge 2020 for several days and reached bronze level.
However he quickly realized that the 11 days of the competition felt too cramped for him to try various algorithms and still be able to work on his other projects. So what he did was recreate the whole PacMan game from scratch in p5.js, so that he has an “archived version” of the challenge and can play with new AI versions later.
