www.xbox.com:
    Xbox Live brings one of the all time classics from Namco Bandai Games to Xbox Live Marketplace. The sequel to the incredibly popular Pac-Man, his girlfriend Ms. Pac-Man takes a turn through the maze. Ms. Pac-Man attempts to clear various challenging mazes filled with Pac-Dots and moving fruits while avoiding the ghosts.

    One collision from any of the ghosts means a loss of life. Survive a few rounds of gameplay, and be treated to humorous intermissions showing the growing romantic relationship between Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, leading all the way up to the arrival of "Junior."

    • Classic gaming: Guide Ms. Pac-Man through the maze and munch all the Pac-Dots and Power Pellets to clear each stage.
    • Arcade authenticity: The game remains true to the arcade version, including ghosts, dot chomping action, and Ms. Pac-Man's "waka-waka" original sounds. Play all 255 mazes from the original coin-op version.
    • Ghosts and pellets: The game is full of hilarious antics as you eat moving fruits and avoid smart ghosts through the fun-filled mazes. Munch a Power Pellet to momentarily turn the ghost blue! When they are blue, you can eat them for bonus points.
    • Free demo: The free trial demo lets you play through the first two levels of the game.
    • Arcade features: Track your high scores on the Ms. Pac-Man leaderboards and strive to garner all 12 achievements.

    CAN YOU PASS THE MIZ QUIZ?

    The coolest thing about Ms. Pac-Man on the Game Gear system is:

    [ ] Four classic arcade mazes, plus some all-new layouts

    [ ] Super-challenging Arcade/Hard level - if you think you're really good.

    [ ] Special zoom view of the action for really graphic ghost-gobbling.

    [ ] 2-player mode that pits the mighty Ms. Pac-Man against Pac-Man himself.

    [X] ALL OF THE ABOVE

    * Va-Va-Va Zoom. Get up close and greet what you eat as you gobble those ghosts.

    * Arcade Tough, No Quarters Required. Think you're really good? Try the Arcade/Hard mode, and think again!

    * Pac-Man vs. Ms. Pac-Man in 2-player alternating action! That's right - Pac-Man pays a visit to prove who wears the pants.
