If you're looking for a good Pac-Man clone try Clean Sweep. While it isn't radically different from Namco's arcade classic it does have some unique elements that keep the gameplay feeling fresh.

Ein Besitzer sowohl des ATARI-Systems (mit ‚Pac-Man‘) als auch des VECTREX-Gerätes kommt als Clean Sweep-Interessent nicht in Frage. Wer jedoch mit diesem Spiel erste Pampelmusen-Erfahrungen sammeln möchte, der findet ein Spiel vor, das sich hinter der Original-Vorlage nicht zu verstecken braucht — trotz der hohen Abstraktion, deren Code man nur nach dem Lesen der hier kurz skizzierten Spielanleitung dechiffrieren kann.

I wouldn't say this is a must-have game but its a nice addition to the library, one that works fine if you find a loose cartridge without the overlay somewhere or play it off the multicart.

I think I'm going to be ill. There are good Pac-Man clones and there are bad Pac-Man clones. Then, there's this one. In some ways it's downright appalling. According to the idiotic background story, you are a vacuum in a bank (shaped like a maze, of course) and robbers are in pursuit. There are four special rooms in the corners of the bank that allow you to "supercharge" and turn the tables. Okay, it's not very original, but is it fun? Hell no! First off, this game is long and moves as slow as molasses. I couldn't wait for it to end! Even worse, your vacuum can only hold so many "coins", so you must periodically return to the center for emptying. But perhaps the worst travesty of all are the Pac-Man sound effects. They're good, but shamelessly pilfered from a far superior game.
