Reviews around effect (3.75 of 5)

  • I love the sound effect of Pac Man eating ghost monsters
  • I love the sound effects of Atari 2600 better
  • I love the sound effects of Atari 2600 better
  • Yes as Law said there is terrible sound effects with the "Wonk" sound, terrible graphics and poor control execution, also the same map repeats itself over and over again

Reviews around port (3.61 of 5)

  • I really like this port for the ATARI!!
  • That said, my experience entitles me to rate Atari 2600 Pac-Man as the worst video game port in history
  • Both are pretty great ports that you can find quite easily.
  • Simply to make the 2600 port of Pac-Man look good

Reviews around maze (3.22 of 5)

  • The pellets are now rectangles and the maze looks more like COMBAT filled with DOG DOO.
  • Each maze gets harder and harder and the ghosts get faster
  • Pac-Man the arcade machine came out in 1982 and Atari VCS/2600 was produced in 1978, with limited technology for a cheaper system so don't expect the maze to even look like the Arcade version.
