About The Game
PAC-MAN was originally released in the arcades in 1980. It has been ported a billion times to many consoles, and I’ve played a few different versions of it! The version I played for this little mini review thing was on the NES Classic, which was released in 2016.
What I Liked
To me, PAC-MAN is one of those games that’s fun to play in short bursts when you have a few minutes to spare. The whole point of the game is to see how long you can last in the maze and possibly beat your high score, so it’s fun without being stressful. Well, the ghosts chasing you constantly can be a bit stressful, but you get what I’m saying. I just like to pick this game up every now and then and spend a few minutes seeing how long I can play before I die!
What I Didn’t Like
The ghosts don’t leave you alone for one damn second! Can’t I just gobble up my little yellow dots and pieces of fruit in peace?!
I called it quits when I got a game over. I beat my high score, which now sits at 9490. That is probably a shitty score, but I’m not very good at this game, so I don’t care! I died really stupidly too- right as I was eating one of the ghosts, it stopped flashing and turned back to a normal ghost, then killed me. Such is life.
