Trivia

Ms. Pac-Man was originally created by 2 programmers at General Computer Corporation who altered a Pac-Man board. The original name for the new game was Crazy Otto. General Computer Corporation sold the rights to Crazy Otto to Midway who changed the name to Ms. Pac-Man and distributed the game without Namco's consent. To avoid loss of other licenses and lawsuits, Midway turned over rights to Ms. Pac-Man to Namco in 1982. See more »

OKAY
9 September 2000 | by cheeseboy80See all my reviews

This sequel to Pac-man is an okay game. In this game, you play as the wife of Pac-man. It's the same game, you have to avoid the ghosts and munch every yellow pellet to complete each level. The mazes are slightly different than the ones in Pac-man. If you love Pac-man, you might love Ms. Pac-man. But I prefer the original one. It is a okay game, but it's not original.

I give this game 6 out of 10
