This is a great port, but don't tell JB that. ;)

It plays well and I still maintain that if you aren't a huge gaming freak, you wouldn't know that this isn't almost arcade perfect.

So, I am back in the HSC, for this week at least. Was playing this last night and I'll post a score tonight hopefully

I probably won't be able to do much better. I never was very good at Pac Man.





Getting a bit better.

I still remember when I got this game for Christmas back in 1988 (I think,) I learned about how Slow Mode was just the NES Advantage repeatedly pausing the game. Unfortunately, the one I had at the time was defective so we had to swap it.
