Pac-Man (Neo Geo Pocket Color review)

Developer: Namco
Publisher: Namco, SNK
Released: 1999

Pac-Man is a maze game that was first released in the Arcades in 1980.

+ Sound effects are very faithful to the Arcade original.

+ Intermission cut-scenes are included to entertain and give the player a short break.

- Doesn't save your high scores despite this being the main gameplay objective.

- The analog stick isn't very accurate for four-way directional movement and many times you lose a life it's not your fault.

- The full screen option allows you to see more of the playfield, but you'll have to squint due to the small LCD.

- The Scroll option zooms in the action, but incoming enemies are hard to spot when they gain speed in higher levels.

- Offers nothing over the original 1980 release and the lack of extras or new modes make it poor value for money.
