Ok, in my pacman game everytime a big square is hit a timer goes off and for the duration of that timer pacman chases the ghosts. But each time another big square is hit, the timer is shorter. Whats the problem? Heres my code...
  
for (int index=0; index < MAX_BIG_SQUARES; index++)
{
	if (big_squares[index].state == SQUARE_OFF)
	{
		if (++chase_timer < MAX_CHASE_TIMER)
		{ 
			if (pacman.x > ghost_1.x)
			dir = DIR_LEFT;
			else
			if (pacman.x < ghost_1.x)
			dir = DIR_RIGHT;
			else
			if (pacman.y > ghost_1.y)
			dir = DIR_UP;
			else
			if (pacman.y < ghost_1.y)
			dir = DIR_DOWN;

			if (pacman.x > ghost_2.x)
			opcode = DIR_LEFT;
			else
			if (pacman.x < ghost_2.x)
			opcode = DIR_RIGHT;
			else
			if (pacman.y > ghost_2.y)
			opcode = DIR_UP;
			else
			if (pacman.y < ghost_2.y)
			opcode = DIR_DOWN;

			if (pacman.x > ghost_3.x)
			blue = DIR_LEFT;
			else
			if (pacman.x < ghost_3.x)
			blue = DIR_RIGHT;
			else
			if (pacman.y > ghost_3.y)
			blue = DIR_UP;
			else
			if (pacman.y < ghost_3.y)
			blue = DIR_DOWN;

			if (pacman.x > ghost_4.x)
			orange = DIR_LEFT;
			else
			if (pacman.x < ghost_4.x)
			orange = DIR_RIGHT;
			else
			if (pacman.y > ghost_4.y)
			orange = DIR_UP;
			else
			if (pacman.y < ghost_4.y)
			orange = DIR_DOWN;
		}

	}
}
  
And i make sure to reset the timer...
  
for (index=0; index<MAX_BIG_SQUARES; index++)
{

	if(Collision_BOBS(&pacman,&big_squares[index]))
	{
		if(big_squares[index].state == SQUARE_ON)
		{
			Destroy_BOB2(&big_squares[index]); 
			player_score+=50;
			big_squares[index].state = SQUARE_OFF;
			total_squares-=1;
			chase_timer=0;

		}
		if (big_squares[index].state == SQUARE_OFF)
			player_score+=0;
		
	}
	
}
