Any and all in the AtariAge store. And Bob's upgraded version of Pac-Man Collection! that basically dumps the actual arcade graphics and has a scroll to compensate. Don't think that's on a cartridge (yet) though.

We've reviewed a few over there- and our next big assignment is to get a handle on all of the maze hacks and homebrews. But without doing research atm and just going by memory, here's what I would vote for. 

 

But I would say def check out

 

Baby Pac Man

Pac Man Collection

Pac Man Plus

Super Pac Man

Pac Man Jr. 

Ms. Pac Man 320

 

As far as HACKS go...

 

Pac Man Jr. Snowday is a really cute holiday styled graphical hack of Pac Man Jr.

Baby Pac Man by UKI is an odd Pac Man style port that has the dots away from the corners

Pac-Jason is a cool horror themed hack where there are crucifixes in the corners. 

Crazy Otto is a port of a game that came out in the 80's that tried to rip off Pac Man completely

I don't know why you prefer them, maybe you don't know that the versions included in the collection have many improvements, including the Pokey sound.

 

Here is the most recent official release:

 

Pac Man Collection Pokey

Updated Monsters | May 31, 2015 | Done

Either way, make sure you don't use Bob DeCrescenzo's code without asking him for his authorization.

 

As for the single games you mentioned above, they have already been released, you will certainly find them with some further research.

Thanks, this is appreciated.

 

As a side note, excluding the first experiments done many years ago, in the latest releases Bob DeCrescenzo wrote the code from scratch.

Did I miss something?  Pac Man 40th anniversary is still not in the store yet? Anyway,  I've played the rom and this one is the "best" no doubt.

Pac Man Collection 40th Anniversary should be in the store soon, along with Galaxian, UniWarS, and the BIOS with KiloParsec.

 

Regarding the 'stand alone' versions, I've been trying to remove them from existence, as Pac-Man Collection was supposed to take care of all of the variations in one place.  Also, the stand-alone hacks aren't anywhere near as accurate as PMC, and especially PMC 40th.

Crazy Otto was the upgrade GCC did to Pac Man, and it is what became Ms. Pac Man. It has significant historical importance to video games.

If you possess Jr. Pac-Man, you already have Jr. Pac-Man Plus as well.

 

It is an Easter Egg / Hidden game.

 

At the title screen, hold down either button on the Player Two controller and the console's "Pause" button simultaneously. 

Wait a few seconds and the game toggles to Plus mode.

Continue to hold, or perform the same process again, to toggle back to the original game.
