Commodore User (Jan, 1988)
With a heavyweight soundtrack thrown in for good measure, Pacmania will surely be massive with wrinklies who thrilled to the original. And if you're one of those bumptious young things whose age only runs to two figures, this combination of Olde Worlde addictiveness and up to the minute detail will have you diving for your dosh.
Power Play (Feb, 1988)
Keine Frage, daß ich mich sofort an den Joystick setzte, und Pac-Man durch die Gänge jagte. Ich war derart von dem Spiel fasziniert, daß ich darüber die Zeit total vergaß. Es macht einfach unglaublich viel Spaß. So primitiv das Spielprinzip auch ist, so fesselnd ist es. Die Programmierer haben sich zwar nicht viel Neues einfallen lassen, dafür aber das Richtige. Wie heißt es doch so schön: Weniger ist mehr.
Fans of the original may or may not enjoy Pac-Mania. While essentially the same game, the 3D upgrade could offend some "Pac-purists." In a way, one might compare it to colorizing classic black and white movies such as Casablanca or It's a Wonderful Life. Casual gamers, though -- or ones too young to remember when Pac-Man was the height of gaming technology -- should be entertained by a fun game. They just won't be playing a classic.
