Summary

Terrible Version of Pac Man

The Good

The gameplay is classic Pac Man. Graphics are arcade perfect

The Bad

The reason is that this version is just too frustrating. The ghosts move way too fast and once edible, turn back instantly. This difficulty detracts from the overall Pac experience and makes the game more a chore to play than fun. This coupled on with somewhat unresponsive controls makes it a classic game ruined. This version's sound is grating for some unknown reason. When you are playing this game, please turn down the sound and listen to Buckner and Garcia's "Pac-Man Fever".

The Bottom Line

If you don't know the gameplay (get out from that rock you've been living in), here's the lowdown. You play Pac- Man as he races around a maze to collect all the dots. However, there are four "ghosts" (If you know their names, good for you, but I don't care to learn them.) chasing you. If you touch the ghost, you lose a life. You could defeat them if you collect a bigger dot, which causes them to be temporarily vunerable. Also, you can collect fruit to get a higher score. The overall goal is to get the highest score
