They each are separate works of art and assembly magic.
I see the "New Pacman (2016)" pictured in YouTube Videos and even the Flashback Portable box image, when the cartridge / game being talked about is "Pac-Man 4K (2008)".
-"Pac-Man 4K (2008)" cartridge is sold in the AtariAge Store for $25. It was programmed by Dennis Debro in 2008 as a challenge to himself to see how arcade close a Pac-Man could be made in only 4K. The final binary is not posted in Dennis' thread - his final binary is on the AtariAge Store cartridge in NTSC, PAL50, & PAL60.
The entire blue maze has black wherever the white "dots" are drawn.

+"New Pacman 4K (2015)" is DINTAR816's 1st assembly homebrew challenge to himself to get Pac-Man in 4K. It includes arcade-close sound - waka-waka eating sound, arcade-close music, cut scene animation with music, and more.
The blue maze is solid on the left and right and center "monster pen", even where the beige "dots" are drawn, by using mid-line color changes.

+"New Pacman 8K (2018)" is the newest of DINTAR816's 2nd assembly homebrew that expands his Pac-Man 4K to more arcade-accurate gameplay. It includes a title screen introduction of the characters, arcade-close sound - waka-waka eating sound, arcade-close music, better cut scene animation with music, intelligent flicker where moster ghosts become solid, and more.
Latest (Oct. 11, 2018) has cornering speedup like the arcade!
“Left Difficulty A” makes the maze a darker blue. I like this best.
“Right Difficulty A” is Speedup making it faster at the start. I prefer the slower default because you notice the behavior of each monster is just like playing the arcade!
