Pac-Man
The Pac-Man series is a true video game empire. From its humble pellet-gobbling beginnings on the Atari 2600, Pac-Man continued to add new characters, features, and improved gameplay. The introduction of Ms. Pac-Man and Pac-Baby spawned not only video game sequels but also a cartoon show starring everyone's favorite Pac-Family. Not just limited to pellets anymore, the Pac-Man series also had adventure game sequels as well as puzzle games based on Pac-Man characters. Check out all of Pac-Man's hits for Atari, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis.

HERE'S PAC-MAN

We know that millions of people all over the world just love the PAC-MAN arcade game. PAC-MAN has won the hearts of men, women, and children everywhere. We also know that PAC-MAN has traditionally been an arcade game. Well, we at ATARI know all about arcade games. After all, we make some of the greatest arcade games in the world, and we know how to bring the same dynamite game play into your home.

Our PAC-MAN has all of the excitement and challenge of the standard arcade game, and you get to play in the comfort and convenience of your own home. This is especially advantageous if you still plan to make an occasional appearance at the arcade to show off your great playing skills. (Little do they know that you've been practicing at home all along.)

Just in case you're new to PAC-MAN, don't worry. It's easy to learn. You'll be a pro in no time at all.
--From the Atari 2600 Pac-Man instruction manual.

The Pacman series is a monster in the classic video game world. It started a new genre when it came out in Japan in 1979. Most games coming out at the time were either space shooters or pong-like sports games. This new genre appealed to both males and females. This made it so popular it inspired more than thirty officially licensed sequels, numerous bootlegs, home-brews, and clones, a plethora of merchandise, a top forty pop song, and even an animated series.

The port to the Atari was somewhat less impressive, though. Many people were disappointed when they brought their Atari 2600 home and stuck in the Pac-Man cartridge, but there was no other choice if they wanted to be able to play Pac-Man at home without a pocket full of quarters. Even though the graphics, sounds, and controls took a hard knock, people were still happy to have an "arcade" in the comfort of their own home. This, of course, spawned console gaming as we know it today. Despite the limitations of the Atari 2600, Pac-Man can be a lot of fun to play. Crank it up and see for yourself!

Pac-Man (NES)
This is one of Tengen's few licensed games, before they cracked Nintendo's protection and made games as they wished.
Pac-Man is a primal video game that is all about trade-offs. Every possible move has good and bad qualities. Eat pellets to complete the level, but you slow down and a ghost might catch you. Grab a power pellet and eat ghosts, you are not completing the level and the ghosts could turn while you are hunting them. Greedy for the fruit? Pac-Man has you making decisions at every turn in less than a second. Wakka-wakka indeed.

Pacman was pretty well ported to the Game Gear. The graphics looked good and true to the arcade. With excellent gameplay, and controller response, you can't go wrong. The only drawback was the size of the screen, and the fact you can't see the whole thing at once.

This port to Gameboy is a lot of fun. The graphics look very good, except for the lack of color. The controls are responsive and the same as they were in the arcade. The sounds also are just like the arcade, which makes it very nostalgic and sure to please all Pac-Man fans. The gameplay is the same as it was in the arcade, too. You just play as long as you can, trying to get the highest score possible. This classic is sure to please classic gamers of all shapes and sizes.

Pac-Man is brought back to life in this adventurous game. No longer are you only collecting dots, but you are actually on foot doing various tasks for you and your family. Still with the good old fashioned fun at the arcade, and the ghosts will be on the look-out for you from time to time, but with a whole new flavor. Sit back and enjoy Pac-Man renewed!

Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (Super Nintendo)
Welcome to Pac-World!

You are about to enter a cartoon universe that is home to the greatest video-game hero ever: Pac-Man! In Pac-World, Pac-Man is free to explore every nook and cranny of a wild and wacky cartoon land. Along the way, he goes on some way-out adventures (and even runs into a little trouble). The world's first interactive cartoon concludes with a battle against the Ghost Witch of Netor to return all the stolen bubble gum to the kids of Pac-City!
--From the Super Nintendo Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures instruction manual.

Another update of the popular Pac-Man series. This new version is more of an interactive cartoon than a video game. Pac-Man and his family have normal problems like any family might have, like needing milk for the baby. These little problems are Pac-Man's "missions" which you must help him solve. Unfortunately you don't control Pac-Man directly, but you guide him by trying to call his attention to certain things, manipulating obstacles in his path, and shooting him a Power Pellet when he needs a Super Pac-Man boost.

Beware, in addition completing to Pac-Man's tasks, you also have to watch out for the good ol' ghosts. They'll come looking for you and try to ruin Pac-Man's life and hurt the ones he loves. But don't relax just because you don't see any bad guys, there are lots of other ways for Pac-Man to hurt himself if you let him.

Pac-Man Special Color Edition (Gameboy Color)
This game is a TWO for ONE special and is very addicting. It is normal PAC-MAN and PAC-ATTACK. PAC-ATTACK is a lot like TETRIS but with a little bit of pac-man mixed in, and best of all it's in COLOR. It's got the good ol' arcade style graphics with Game Boy sound quality. It is a two player game, player two plays when player one dies. If you love PAC-MAN and TETRIS, this is your game.

Pac-Man is back again, this time in 3-D. Same old story, which means no story really. Pac-Man must eat all the pellets, and the ghosts want to stop him. A few notable changes in play, primarily the fact that the three dimensional view in Pac-Mania allows Pac-Man to jump, and now there are more ghosts on each level than the classic four.

The updated graphics don't really do much for this game. Pac-Man is a sphere instead of just a circle, and the walls look like walls instead of just lines, but the sprites and animation aren't that good. They might have done better to, I don't know, add in the jumping feature somehow without changing the 2-D graphics. In my humble opinion, the graphics look like they've taken a step backward from the clean arcade look of the NES Pac-Man game. I'm not sure the 8-bit system was up to the challenge of what they were trying to do with Pac-Mania.

Pac-Mania (Sega Genesis)
Basically the classic Pac-Man game with new 3-D graphics. Eat all the pellets, dodge the ghosts, grab a Power Pellet to turn the tables and chase the ghosts for a while. The big new thing for Pac-Mania is the ability to jump, which can help you avoid the ghosts if you get cornered. Another slight difference is the scrolling screen; you can't see the whole game board at once, but it doesn't make much difference to gameplay.

The updated graphics make for an interesting change. The Genesis version of Pac-Mania is certainly a big improvement over the NES. The change in scenery helps keep the game fresh, so you don't feel like you're just staring at the same thing over and over forever.

The sound effects and music aren't bad either, but if you find them annoying you can turn off either or both in the options menu.

THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF VIDEO GAMES

By now you've probably spent some time playing the master of mazes -- PAC-MAN *. Well, lookout PAC-MAN lovers, ATARI is proud to bring you the "femme fatale" of computer video game world -- MS. PAC-MAN!

That's right, she's here in all her shining glory. MS. PAC-MAN is sure to steal your heart with her grace and charm.

And she's all dolled up with a ribbon in her hair. Just like the arcade MS. PAC-MAN, this ATARI home version has multiple mazes, floating fruit, pretzels, an end-of-game cartoon, and four fearless ghosts -- Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Sue.

Get ready to feast your eyes on the original video beauty queen. She's ready to bring you many delightful hours of fun and excitement. So, sit back, relax and have a good time playing MS. PAC-MAN.
--From the Atari 2600 Ms. Pac-Man instruction manual.

Ms. Pac-Man was a very well done sequel to Pac-Man. It had almost everything Pac-Man lacked. Ms. Pac-Man incorporated mazes that changed every few levels, the graphics were better (although they were still a little blinky), and it had the extra point fruits to eat. There were also some variations of game-play for this version. You could turn off ghosts by selecting different games. You could have Ms. Pac-Man going up against one ghost! Talk about easy! Or if you want a little easier than normal, but not that easy, go for three ghosts. This is definitely a must play for any Pac-Man or Ms. Pac-Man fan out there.

Most games coming out at the time were either space shooters or pong-like sports games. This new genre appealed to both males and females. This made it so popular, it inspired more than thirty officially licensed sequels, numerous bootlegs, home-brews, and clones, a plethora of merchandise, a top forty pop song, and even an animated series. This addition to the series came from an unofficial bootleg called Crazy Otto. Fearing a lawsuit from the Namco, Midway signed the rights to them and Ms. Pacman was born.

It plays just like Pacman, except it has different mazes and the bonus items move around the board. It was a lot of fun to play! The graphics were great, and so were the sounds and controls. The different difficulty levels made this game pretty interesting, too. If you put the difficulty on crazy, it was just that. Everything would be moving so fast, I don't think there is a human that could keep up. Another cool thing about Ms. Pac-Man was the addition of the story scenes. As you play through the game, you will see scenes of Mr. and Ms. Pac-Man meeting, falling in love, and getting visits from the stork. When you beat the game, you get to see all the kids running around. This game is a lot of fun, and if you are a Pacman fan, you will go nuts over this game!

An arcade classic that any gamer should know. Pac-Man became a big hit around the prime time of video gaming. So now, we have his friend, Ms. Pac-Man, who does the same thing her male companion does: EAT DOTS!

Updated graphics from the Atari version and previous Pac-Man releases make Ms. Pac-Man very easy on the eyes as well as a lot of fun to watch or play. Also new features such as new mazes and bonus fruits make for better gameplay all around.

Ms. Pac-Man gets to run around in 36 unique, mind-boggling mazes, some small enough to fit on one screen; some so big you'll have to scroll around; some that are mighty strange; and some that are straight out of the arcades!

Whether you're a beginner or expert, Ms Pac-Man will have you running ragged. There's even a Pac Booster Button to really let her shake-off those pesky ghosts.
--From the Super Nintendo Ms. Pac-Man instruction manual.

Another great update of the Pac-Man series. Ms. Pac-Man wakka-wakkas around the maze eating dots and dodging ghosts, or chasing the ghosts when she eats a Power Pellet. Great graphics and sound make this an excellent choice in the Pac-Man line.

This is one of the most awesome looking Pac-Man games around, with several different kinds of mazes, and you get to choose which you want to play! It also has the great cut scenes every few levels that we all love. The stages are colorful and have strange and unique designs that are different from what you might be used to. The noises and music are just what you'd expect them to be for a Pac-Man game.
This is definitely one of my favorite games and it is very addictive!

This version of Ms. Pac-Man is very different from the version for SNES (SNES has more new options, and this one is a very traditional arcade style). It has the traditional look and sound of a Pac-Man game, only your 'Pac-Man' seems to be a 'Pac-Woman' (indicated by the little red bow on top and the huge red lips). It still has all of the silly little ghosts that you love and the cut scenes every few levels.

It's not the most incredible game to look at. It won't blow your mind. Still, it is fun and easy to learn to play (though not always easy to win).

Pac-Attack Sega Genesis Screenshot 1
Pac-Attack (Sega Genesis)
Pac-Attack is a puzzle game somewhat similar to Tetris. Basically Pac-Man is ghost hunting once again, not gobbling pellets this time but concentrating on wiping out his enemies. Your job is to set up the bricks so that they make complete lines which are eliminated, and also set up the ghosts so that when Pac-Man drops in he eats as many as possible.

Pac-Attack has really good graphics for a simple puzzle game. I guess the only disappointment is that all the ghosts are the same. But then, if they were supposed to be the original Pac-Man ghosts, I guess you could only have four at a time.

A hybrid of Pac-Man and Tetris, Pac-Attack makes for an interesting concept. There are no pellets in this version, and Pac-Man can always eat the ghosts when he shows up, as long as you put them where he can get to them. Besides the ghosts, there are bricks, which are eliminated Tetris-style by completing a row. So the trick is to arrange the blocks as they fall so that Pac-Man eats all the ghosts and the bricks line up to be eliminated. Easy, huh?

The evil Ghost Witch has cast a vicious spell on Pac-Man and thrown him back in time to when he was a Pac-Boy. Only you can save him now. Down some Pac-Pellets and get ready to battle your way through a totally supersonic side-scrolling adventure. Journey through snowy mountains and forests, collect fireballs and bubbles, crush Pac-Bats and ghosts, swim like a fish and swing like a monkey...and ultimately get Pac-Man back to the real world!
--From the Super Nintendo Pac-In-Time instruction manual.

Pac-In-Time is a bit of an unusual platformer, and definitely a change of pace from most Pac-Man games. Defeat the Ghost Witch and her minions to help return Pac-Man to his proper time and place.

Pac-In-Time was a pretty good-looking game for the SNES system. Nice and cartoonish, good backgrounds and sprites, decent animation. The sounds seemed a bit behind the times, but not bad enough to detract from playing the game.
