... and in case you didn't know, they butchered the 2600 and Intellivision versions on purpose in hopes you will give in and buy a ColecoVision instead. #RESIST

 
Not sure if joking or crazy person.

​...and the 2600 port of Pac-Man was intentionally crippled to upsell the 5200  :roll: 

 

If the goal is to cause consumers to abandon their current system, it would not be of interest to release ports to those platforms at all.  The goal is to make money...not to spend it creating something that you hope nobody would buy!  BTW Gerry Kitchen has stated that his 2600 version was his best effort at the time, and that if he didn't spend so much development time on the hammers (instead of dropping that feature), he might have worked in a 3rd and possibly 4th screen.  Regardless, the port was an instant hit.

Altering the frame rate is cheating...there are much easier ways to do that.

 

Did you know that game 2 is exactly the same as game 6 due to a glitch?  Game 2 was supposed to have a slower Pac-Man according to the manual.  I'm thinking that adding the children's versions had introduced that problem (an oversight when choosing the player speed...the comparison is off by 2).
