Hello everyone, I just stumbled across this on the interweb and I was wondering if any of you have seen one in person.  Is the gameplay any good? (I was thinking that I would like to buy one)

The Pac portion is much harder than Pacman; you earn your power ups via the pin part of the game and the ghosts are much more aggressive.

Not a cab I'd recommend for a beginning collector as they're pretty temperamental machines. The vidiot boards are particular sources of aggravation.

It's a fun game. The problem I have with it is that the video portion of the game is too tough. If you stink it up on the pinball portion of the game where you earn your energizers you're SOL when it comes back to the video portion.

 

Timeline Arcade in Hanover, PA has one that I play a lot when I visit.

Agreed with the above comments.

 

The local (now gone) Malibu racetrack/arcade used to have one, and I'd see it at the shore sometimes.  I used to enjoy Baby Pac-Man.

Gave a Baby Pac-Man machine to my brother after I downsized my collection. Really fun game, but as others have mentioned, the video part of it is pretty tough. Not Jr. Pac tough, but up there. Fun in short spurts, but guess it didn't hold my attention for very long. Great quarter muncher BITD!
