Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 5 - Pac-man

Recommended Posts

This is a great port of Pac-Man. I’ve owned it for a few years and have barely played it. (I  bought it at my local now defunct independent video game store.) The graphics and sound are wonderful. It’s testament to the capabilities of the Intellivision. It would have been mind blowing if I had it BITD. I would have thought I needed a Colecovision or 5200 to achieve this level of quality. Bugertime is great but this is Pac-Man.... One of the most iconic video games of all time. 

 

Thanks to HSC for getting me to play these games.

Totally agree, it’s fantastic. Even for being an “Anti Pac-Man”.

Who would have thought that success would come down discipline in this game more than reflexes.  I'm constantly saying "stick to the plan" to myself and usually failing to do so.  In Anti Pac-Man, you wouldn't go wrong if you never killed a single ghost and I find that remarkably hard to do.  Not meaning the incidental "he was in my way" ones, I mean that I'm still actually chasing them down for a measly 200-600 points and just can't break myself of that habit.  When I die, it's almost always the result of a ghost I shouldn't have killed.  They're just sooooooooooo tasty!  🙂

Hahaha!  It’s such a great point. It’s so hard to stay away from them, and only in the right circumstances can you eat them. And because this is the anti-Pac-Man, we can almost never eat all four of them to gain the points we really want.  It’s such a strangely programmed game but I love it!

So for some reason, I have been a bit obsessed by this version of Pac-Man, and put a lot of time into it recently.  I recorded a video of my last attempt with the game and was able to achieve a very high score.  The pic is below, but I am having trouble getting the video off of my phone and onto my PC.  I am working on that, and will eventually submit the video to both Twin Galaxies and High Score as I believe it is a world record score.  But for now, here is my final entry for this game:

1,297,130

My Final 'Anti' Pacman Entry - Yes quite embarrassing after Matt's bombshell. 😵 Bring on Pitfall because I am thoroughly and unequivocally DONE with trying to avoid these horribly fast and annoying ghosts..... 😝
