Jr. Pac-Man himself looks great, especially with that little propeller hat. You simply could not ask for a better Pac-Man game on the 2600.

The Atari Times
Even the smallest details have made it into this game, from the different noises when picking up the pellets that the toys have run over to the explosion that occurs and wipes out a power pill if you are too late in grabbing a toy. This game is pretty easy to find, and you should be able to snag yourself a copy for under $10.00. Make sure that you do -- you won't regret it!

Poor Jr. Pac-Man is probably tired of being compared to his parents, so I'll say this: Jr. Pac-Man is one of the best maze games for any system of any era. It's fast, slickly produced, imminently challenging and a total blast to play.

So far as comparisons go, this game easily leaves the original Pac-man in the dust. Ms. Pac-man holds its own, but Jr. Pac-man edges it out as well, although it is scoring lower due to being released at a time when standards were higher. If scrolling screens and fast movement is too much for you, you should go for Ms. Pac-man. However, if you like the idea of fast pace and scrolling screens, then Jr. Pac-man is the Pac-man game to get for the Atari 2600. According to atariage.com, it is a fairly common game, although I personally had a very difficult time finding it. Still, if you can find it, it is well worth the search.

Bien qu'elle n'apporte pas grand-chose de neuf, cette nouvelle version n'en est pas moins ludique. Les labyrinthes sont beaucoup plus grands que ceux du programme original et ils défilent en scrolling, ce qui est très rare sur console. Indispensable.

Ich habe schon immer liebend gerne Pac-Man gespielt und tue das auch heute noch. „Jr. Pac-Man“ gefällt mir ganz gut, wenn auch kein großer Unterschied zu den anderen beiden Pac-Man-Spielen für das VCS festzustellen ist. Wer diese zwei Module schon hat, braucht sich das neueste Abenteuer der wohl bekanntesten Computerspiel-Figur nicht zu kauten. VCS-Neulingen allerdings würde ich dieses Spiel ans Herz legen. Technisch ist es zwar nicht perfekt (die Gespenster flackern), aber es spielt sich genauso gut wie seine Vorgänger. Das Scrolling ist dazu recht ordentlich.
