Storyline

Players guide a yellow, pie-shaped creature around a single maze, munching dots while avoiding four roaming ghosts. Four energizer dots are on the board, one in each corner. Eating one of these special dots will temporarily empower Pac-Man to turn the tables on the ghosts. Each time all the dots in a maze are eaten, play resumes with a fresh screen.

The nostalgia it burns!
28 May 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Here is a game that everybody should know.

The 1980s Video Games started with a bang.

Despite a scar few years later with Atari Pac-Man and E.T. these are now cult.

Pac-Man is so simple.

You are a yellow circle munching pellets in a maze with ghosts.

There you Can get a pellets so you can eat the ghosts for a while.

No over the top CGI and huge VG bosses here.

Just a fun old game with no end.

The Pac-Man music includes of course the famous theme.

Try to find a place where they still might have arcade games.

And, eh have a dozens of coins.

10/10
