Hi:

In keeping with the 5200 hacks, here is the 7800 version of Pac-Man Plus.

Whew. I think I'm all Pacced out for a while, time to attempt another game (although I don't know many others as well as I know this one) :)

I actually would love to try my hand at helping to finish 5200 Tempest... but I have to learn how collision detection works first :-/

Anyway, Have fun!

That would be cool, but I think I would have to start from scratch with that one - I'm not exactly ready to start from scratch yet ;)

Nice. Besides the obvious (like some of the effects). ;) But then this is the 2600 sound chip we are talking here. Did you do a microsoft? :lol: I dont remember the maze blinking at the end of the level (at least not in the pac-man hack).

Non-the-less it is cool seeing all these pac variants for the 7800.

Does pac-man start off moving so fast in pac-man plus?

I'm just curious. Does the 2600 have a CPU stack? And if so where is it stored?

The 2600 has a stack, it is usually stored at $00FF and downward, through $0080.

Hi Shannon

Thanks!
Yes, the maze blinks at the end of the level for each pac variant :)

The arcade Pac-ManPlus starts of at the 'Apple' speed, so I did the same in the hack :)

I do.


I seem to do best with the standards (Pac Man, Pac Plus, Ms. Pac) than the ones with 'complex' maze paths or open areas (Ms. Pac Attack, Hangly-Man)

A new Joystick might help there, my old-as-dirt Wico seems be getting a bit insensitive.

I think I will have a small handful of 7800 Pac and an even smaller handful of 5200 Pac Plus soon - check the MarketPlace forum within the next couple of days... :)

Here is the Manual for 7800 Pac-Man Plus, although you need Microsoft Publisher to view / print it.

Hey you know what you should do next? Make a Pac-Man Colllection like the one for the Colecovision, and you can put Pac-Man, Ms Pac-Man and Pac-Man Plus all on one cart :cool:
