“Wacca Wacca! Pacman has a miss’s!”
Namco, after releasing Pacman, decided to follow-up with a love affair, a love that would last through the decades of time.
‘Ms Pacman’. A similar offering with subtle differences, such as varying maze patterns, with tunnels leading to the side of the maze, long eye lashes, lipstick and a cute little ribbon in ms Pac’s….. hair??
The onus once again being on the devouring of pellets and power pills and the consumption of fruit, the dynamic remains the same. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!”
Tactics vary with each changing scenario and a higher degree of intelligence in the souls of each of the familiar ghosts, the game is just as addictive as the original.
This is a must for any collector of the Pacman series and for any classic or retro arcade game enthusiast, if not just for the pink mazes.
