For those who really don't know what Pac-Man is, you've most likely gotten onto this webpage by hitting keys at random. Please back away from the thing in front of you that looks like a TV and get an adult to help you. It's also possible you're looking for the guy selling his Three Dog Night and Bay City Rollers LPs and got to the AGH website by mistake. To get back to that website, type in the following address:

For the rest of us, the 5200 version of Pac-Man would have been virtually indistinguishable from the original if they would have just given the ghosts some eyes! Sound effects, music, and gameplay are really close to the original (I'm shying away from saying exactly only because it's been so long since I've played the original). If they would have put the eyes on the ghosts, I'd say they couldn't have done a better job. One more thing. Either I suck at Pac-Man, or the 5200 version is a bit more difficult than the original. Now go read a review that's actually going to tell you something you don't already know.
