Tengen is bringing the popular coinop - Pacmania to the NES! Basically a 1990 version of the old favorite dot gobbler, Pacmania has been updated with a few new twists. The view of the screen is set in a 3/4 overhead perspective giving a pseudo 3-D effect. The playfield is huge and is now several screens wide and high! The goal is still the same - gobble all the dots on the screen but the family of ghosts have grown from 4 to over 8! To help you along though, you can now jump over the ghosts and the bonus fruit can give you extra speed to outrun the enemy! Get far enough into the game and the ghosts will start to mimic your moves. When you try to jump over a green ghost, he will jump also! It's a whole new game and a worthy sequel to the old favorite!

Game Reviews

  • Manufacturer: Sega of America
  • Machine: Genesis

The next installment in the Phantasy Star series lets you fight from inside a vehicle! Gosh, that's swell. There's nothing to set this apart from other RPGs, but RPGs don't come out all that often for the Genesis, so you make the call.

  • Machine: Game Boy

The arcade classic Pac-Man makes his Game Boy debut in this sensational new release from Namco. Relive the adventure as you munch your way through twisting mazes filled with power pellets, bonus fruit, and those wicked ghosts! Beware of their touch - they've been known to snack on Pac's.

Hook up with a friend to double the excitement in this first 2-player Pac-Man. Determine the challenge by choosing the number of lives you' II need to defeat your opponent. Add fuel to the rivalry by using the handicap feature which allows two players to begin in different rounds. Gulp down a ghost and shoot'em to your opponent's maze!

  • Levels: 100
  • Theme: Maze
  • Players: 1
  • Difficulty: Easy

The 3-D version of Pac Man! Travel through maze after maze of ghost-infested levels. Try to get to the dots before all of the other creatures catch up with you. Fun for all ages!

    Have you played the pac-man games in the arcades? Well, there's been a change, Everythings 3-D! It's very cool! The same controls and story, except more ghosts and levels and the new abilities that pac-man has. Now he can Jump over Ghosts and he can use the Pac-amplifier (It's a little light that allows he to go faster than normal, the good thing is that you don't have to unlock it and it doesn't run out and you can turn it on/off but you have to remember to activate in the options menu before starting) which is a good thing. This game is Highly Recommended by me, JGCD!
