Downloaded this today on the e-shop in the U.S. and am liking it, just wish obviously it was in color and that the screen playing area was larger. They have a small part of the screen on the right dedicated to a score and bonus item listing and it's really cumbersome. I will always love Pac-Man though, and this version isn't bad, it's just... why not have a color version (perhaps from the NES console not the GameBoy console) featured instead? I do love the retro feel of it, though, so I don't mind playing the grayscale version. Any other Pac-Man fans out there download this too?

I'm a Pac Man fan, but I was offended that Namco felt they could release this and then charge $6 (Australian) for it.

I downloaded it just because I didn't have a portable pac-man to play.
It's nothing spectacular but hey it's Pac-man. You kinda know what you're getting.
The restore points helps too since you can save before each map. If you mess up just re load your save and try again.

btw You can tap the D pad right or left on the title screen to make the whole map appear.
That way part of the screen won't be cut off by the score and stuff.
Nintendolifes review failed to mention this.

Ah! Thanks man! I had no idea. ;) I just glanced at the manual (something I should do more often.) Thanks for the info. Yeah, in the same boat as you, but hey, it's Pac-Man, and I love me some Pac-Man ;)

Wow! That's crazy. I have to admit I do love the greyscale retro feel of it now, I guess I do have this game in like 10 other versions all in color, why not another different (vintage) version? lol ;)

No problem. Seems alot of people don't know about that full screen setting in this version of the game.
It's not the arcade version obviously but you can't go wrong with Pac-man.

I like Pac-Man, but I'm not sure if I'll buy the Game Boy version. I already own the original in all its glory in Pac-Man World 2.

I'm back (for the moment)!

Okay maybe you can go wrong. LOL.
Is that on Atari? Something went horribly wrong with that version.

@Link79: Yep, that's the Atari version and it was really rushed, they never actually finished the game.

The Atari version of Ms. PacMan more than made up for that disaster of a game though.

Dude! I waited in line for 3 hours to buy this with my parents when I was a little kid... it was $30-40 at the time if I recall. Early to mid 80's. ;) It was state of the art back then! :D

They had a version for the 7800, too. I think I have it ;)

Agreed! I actually like the zoomed in version now I've played both on this release, but I do love Pac Man any way I can get it ;) So I'm glad I got this. ;)

There's a "safe zone" right above the Ghost Box to the left. After reading the manual. I had no clue! LOL. Got to level 7 like always and died, seems that I can only get that far ;)

What's the difference between Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man on Game Boy? Different mazes?

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Different mazes (ad Ms. Pac-Man has 4 different mazes, while Pac-Man only has one), the ghosts have different movement patterns (that now involve more randomness), and the fruit travels around the maze instead of sitting still.
