Ms. Pac-62,210

So close to that second banana, I'll be tasting it for a week...

:(

Really planned on "playing along", moreso this season than last(I'm actually not that competitive-unless you want to race, lol, then you might be in trouble...)(16 bit racers)(No idea why...), but somehow I have put more attempts in this than I expected to(still not too many). It's just a very "fair" game, more fun than I realized for "skilled play".

Just played both these games, but (PAL), and I was able to roll Pac-man. Only went to 24,835, but it is easily doable. 
 

I have been unable to get much further in NTSC Pac-man. Around level 5, if you don’t collect the pellets in the middle of the board, it is almost impossible to collect them without a power pellet. Additionally, the max speed of the ghosts on NTSC is much higher than PAL, so none of the patterns (mentioned so far) work.

 

For MsPacman, I did make a slight improvement, but I don’t want to count it. I scored over 100k in a previous HSC, so I know I can do it again.

Yep PAL Pac-Man is a lot easier, curious to know why the patterns you mentioned don’t work on NTSC, my pattern and Rollage as well Zilchsr were done on NTSC.

Ms. Pac-Man: Holy moly everyone...my wrists. Lost count which stage I got to (I had plenty of ghosts to worry about, hah), but I think at least the 10th random. I had a nice amount of random bananas and pears (and lots of cherries there too 🙄) and more than one close call that I really don't know how I survived. Don't know how long I played for, but it felt like one of those endless games. Nothing like those who are playing Pac-Man for 3+ hrs tho haha. I still can't beat my high there. I'm very pleased with myself, especially b/c it was my personal best after the 70k that I posted earlier. No incremental improvement, right to doubling 😁. The high levels here are definitely easier than the arcade jr boards. Not to say they're easy- says more about the arcade difficulty, lol.

 

145,650 random level 10th+?

Note on stuff from the instruction manual: 1) It says there's an end of game cartoon- I'm calling bs on that. I feel cheated! Haha. 2) It says the fruit are randomized every 2 levels. I think this may be accurate b/c I remember having two levels in a row of bananas, cherries, and pears. Not 100% sure tho.

Your score is NOT LEGIT because you used the hack game based on Ms. Pac-Man - it's Pac-Man Arcade.

See Pac-Man Arcade INFOS here.

Always use ORIGINAL RELEASES when you post your scores.
