This requires you to make a "pac dot chain" of 256 in a single game, which is attained by eating dots consecutively with no breaks. You can pause against a wall, but cannot change direction.
You can tell what your current chain is by the number trail that pac man leaves behind pac-dot are eaten. After completing a full 256 chain, the screen will clear and give you a big point boost.

My best strategy for this is to start off a game by going to the left and making a counterclockwise circle, then making your way back up the right hand side. You should get a good head start of around 40 - 60 depending on what kind of pac dot set up you spawned with.
After this, continue to move on looking out for long straights, and squares you can weave between. Make sure you keep an eye out for an escape from ghosts, and some sections where pac-dots may end. You can also use the side tunnels as long as each end has pac-dots, otherwise your chain will break.

To make things easier, make sure your loadout consists of some attacking power ups, such as the laser or giant. Even the magnet can help out in some cases. Also make sure to pick up power pellets to gobble up ghosts that can get in your way.
