It's Pac-Man, almost identical to original 1980 release.
It came to PC in 1983. There were already numerous Pac-Man clones on PC available and especially "PC-Man", which came to PC one year earlier was just better in every aspect. So original Pac-Man just came a bit late to the party on PC, when better arcades were already available.
The Bottom Line
PC port of Pac-Man is not bad, but seems already washed out in comparison with some other better PC Pac-Man clones.

I think Pac-man is really cute. The mazes are very challenging. The whole concept of the game is so cool, a little creature collecting dots to finish levels is so innocent, so well-natured, even some of the most innocent looking games of the generation like Gubble, have a dark storyline. There are 3 ghosts that are chasing you around the mazes. There is no specific story for this game, there is no unsuitable content in this game, this game alone has spawned great sequels like Gobstopper Gobbler and Ms. Pac PC.
There have been several lame attempts to try and resurrect the wonderfulness of these games with unsuitable content, a variety of guns and animated blood and gore so that it will appeal to M17+ gamers like Capman.
The Bottom Line
The best arcade game even after all these years. This game made my all-time favorite game list. A 5 out of 5 for all the Platforms that it was released on.
