Racer Ball intro and game screen

Racer Ball is a port of Ghost Gobbler to the Dragon 32 / Dragon 64 British based computers (a clone of the Coco 1, but with a real serial port, and a vastly better keyboard). I normally don't mention straight ports between the two systems, but this one, when it was licensed to Microdeal, got both a name change, and the shapes of the ghosts and the Pacman figure were completely changed. I am not sure why this was done. Like Ghost Gobbler, it also features the "teleport" tunnel in the lower left quarter of the maze, which would teleport you to the top when you ran over it (unless you hold the joystick button down).
