GB Games with Pac-Man
First Impression Hmm, "file not found" errors, better fix those bugs up. Ok, fixed all the errors! Hmm, not bad, when you forget about those file errors. :) Whoa, could this have been the best Pac-Man clone from two years ago? This is really neat! Hmm, nice Pac-Man clone, I wish I knew about it two years ago. =/
What It's Like Mostly, I play Pac-Man clones, when I'm really bored. I would have to say it's almost like the original. The graphics are ok, and design is what makes this different. It's about two years old, and it's not too bad. It's better than my old Hack-Man game for sure. :P This Pac-Man almost plays like Ms. Pac-Man, because it has red-cherries coming out of the transporters bouncing around.
Other things you should know Even if you unzip this in a C:\GBGAMES directory, it still has errors reading the sub-directories of the game, like "\PAC\PAC". I fixed the errors that were located in the game, so no one will run into these errors. This is just a reminder, this is a game that's about two years old.

 Pac-Man game!

The rating
Graphics They could be better, but they work well. It's using SCREEN 12 graphics, and it's really flickery. The bad thing about SCREEN 12, is it uses 16 colors, and GET and PUT draw directly to screen. :(
Sound No Sound.
Flexibility/Features The features are quite nice, It comes with Tic-Tac-Toe you can play against the computer. It comes with Guess That Number, hehe, it's primitive, but ok, for an add-on for a Pac-Man game. :)
Gameplay/Control The game itself, uses INKEY$ for movement, which is ok, but it's a little irritating how you control a character with INKEY$ having a delay effect because INKEY$ was made for typing. INP(&H60) would have been better as the user imput, to control Pac-Man.
Overall Impression It's not bad at all for being two years old! This must be the first Pac-Man clone to have ghosts retrieving, and cherries jumping around the game. I really enjoyed this game, Then again, I'm a big fan of Pac-Man Clones. :)
14/20 * 5 =

Tic-Tac-Toe screen.
