Facts

  • This game was written by Tod Frye in 6 weeks, and over 10 million cartridges were produced. (Montfort, Bogost: 'Racing the Beam')

  • The Pac-Man sprite is rendered every frame, but the ghosts are drawn round-robin style, only one of the four ghosts is visible each frame, which also means that each ghost is 3/4 invisible.

  • Got the score 2083 in MiSTer. This version needs no introduction. What a terrible port of Pac-Man.
  • 2023-06-01
  • Got the score 583 in MiSTer.

    This game is frustrating, mostly because it's hard to see what's going on with all the blinking sprites.
