EDI­TOR’S CHOICE

Munchkin

Retro Gamer - - HARDWARE HEAVEN -

This is fa­mously the game that Atari sued Philips over, claim­ing that it was sub­stan­tially sim­i­lar to Pac-man – for which Atari held the ex­clu­sive con­ver­sion rights.

The game ac­tu­ally fea­tures a good few things which make it more en­joy­able than Atari’s of­fi­cial port – apart from the shapeshift­ing maze, the

Munchies be­gin to wan­der as you come close to com­plet­ing the maze. It gets tense when you’re try­ing to in­ter­cept the last Munchie, while the Munch­ers try to munch Munchkin.
