K.C.'s Krazy Chase! (Philips Videopac G7000 / Magnavox Odyssey 2 review)

Developer: Magnavox
Publisher: Magnavox
Released: 1982

K.C.'s Krazy Chase! is a maze game and the sequel to K.C. Munchkin! (1981, Philips Videopac G7000).

+ Differentiates itself from Pac-Man (1980, Arcade) by affording you the option of being the constant aggressor.

+ Forcefully munching the Dratapillar's body is a neat contrast to simultaneously playing defensively to avoid other enemies.

+ Managing to cut the Dratapillar close to its head results in dispersed parts which adds to the multitasking fun.

+ Option to eat trees scattered around the playfield for extra points adds a terrific risk-reward system for high score chasers.

+ Sprite animation is outstanding and K.C.'s smiley face and flopping ears brings oodles of personality to the game.

- Like its predecessor, it still only provides you with a single life, so improving your skills in higher levels takes real patience.

- Despite having five included maze types, there's no option to randomise them during a singular high score run.
