    Good One!!!

    Boggles me, but I coached my Son to about this same score a few weeks ago-don't get me wrong, it him took several tapings, and him getting pretty cranky about it, haha!

    I'm extremely far from an expert, but if you did just a little more ghost munching it would help the score a lot.

    I wasn't really familiar with this port until recently, it sure is a heck of a lot better than VCS Pac Man, that's for sure!

    I wonder how things would have turned out for Atari if they had just been willing to give the Pac Man port the resources it deserved.

    This is so true especially when you look at 2600 Space Invaders port (which was released before Pac-Man & remains pretty good, all things considered) AND when you look at the homebrew Pac-Man 4K for the 2600.

    There's a video somewhere of the designer of the original 2600 Pac-Man view the homebrew and then defending his original version. It's painful.

    I was thinking Asteroids, tho it's not my favorite-pretty sure they went to extra trouble to make it "good".

    Wow, when my father brought that cartridge home in 1981, that was a big effin' deal, Pitcrew! PAC-MAN AT HOME...HOLY SHlT!! :D After playing it though, I had to convince myself that it was a good game...lol You know what though? For a while now, I actually really do like the game. I don't compare it to the arcade, or any other version. I don't even look at it as Pac-Man, really.. It's its own entity. There's a charm there. Nostalgia probably does play a big part though.
