On long road trips with my family, I sometimes ask my wife to drive so I can plug my Game Gear into the cigarette lighter and do some gaming. Nine times out of ten Pac-Attack is the first game I play. Because of its suitability to the portable format, its addictive qualities and its astoundingly high replay value, Pac-Attack is one of my favorite Game Gear titles.
Portable Review (Oct 29, 2005)
There is a great deal of replay in this game. First off, in the puzzle mode, there are 100 puzzles for you to solve, and with the simple 3-character password, you can keep coming back to the last one you finished. The Normal mode is pretty addictive, like most Tetris-like games and it'll keep you playing for a long time. There's also a 2-player mode that adds to the fun. In other words, if you're looking for a good puzzle game for the Game Gear, you should definitely consider adding Pac-Attack to your collection.
The addiction to the Pac-Man arcade game character continues on! Not relying on fancy graphic effects, Pac-Attack is the type of puzzle game designed for the Game Gear. The premise is simple (fitting bricks together in a manner similar to Tetris), but play this game a few times and you'll definitely get hooked on this smaller version.

Dans la guerre des consoles portables, la version Game Gear de Pac-Panic dame le pion à la version Game Boy en restituant les deux éléments qui faisaient défaut au portage sur la console de Nintendo: la couleur, et surtout le mode deux joueurs. Voilà qui permet aisément à cette adaptation de se hisser à la hauteur des versions 16-bits, et d'abandonner à la version Game Boy une place de mouton noir que celle-ci pourra reprocher à Namco.
