Pac-Mania‘s fun enough while you’re playing it, but there’s nothing it does that’s an essential leap forward for the series. Like so many 3D conversions of classic gaming mascots, it promises more than it delivers.

Pac-Mania sur NES ne déçoit pas, mais il ne surprend pas non plus. Réalisée avec sérieux mais sans réelle ambition par Tengen, cette adaptation livre une copie fidèle à ce qui figurait sur le cahier des charges: c’est jouable, c’est lisible, et tout le contenu est là. On ne peut s’empêcher de penser, malgré tout, que la 8 bits de Nintendo était capable de mieux que ça, surtout en 1990.
As an arcade port, the transfer is decent but the visual shine of the original transfers over flat and dull to the NES, and the gorgeous mazes are definitely part of the arcade version’s appeal. Other games in the series are better for a pellet fix.
