Five homebrew versions
The best from the new wave of Pac-man conversions
Pac-man 4k ■
Programmer Dennis Debro sought to create a version of Pac-man for the Atari 2600 that was more faithful to the arcade game while still remaining within the same 4K memory limit as Tod Frye’s original game. The results are nothing short of impressive.
8k Pac-man ■
Daniel _____ (DINTAR816) took 2600 Pac-man one step further and designed a Pac-man game that utilises 8K of ROM and includes all the bells and whistles of the original arcade game, like animated cutscenes, improved sound and incredibly faithful ghost AI.
Pac-man collection For colecovision ■
A version of Pac-man was planned for the Colecovision, but was never completed. Eduardo Mello of Opcode Games took it upon himself to remedy that with the homebrew Pac-man Collection containing versions of Pac-man, Ms Pacman and another hidden game.
Jr Pac-man For atari 7800 ■
The side-scrolling mazes of this overlooked Pac-man sequel are challenging on any platform, and Bob Decrescenzo brings a faithful rendition of the game to the Atari 7800 with a variety of player-friendly difficulty settings.
crazy otto For 7800 homebrew Pac-man ■
Crazy Otto was an unlicensed enhancement kit for Pac-man arcade machines developed by General Computer Corporation. GCC worked with Pac-man licensee Midway to turn the game into the beloved sequel,
Ms Pac-man. Programmer Bob Decrescenzo hacked Atari’s 7800 Ms Pac-man game to better match GCC’S original game.
