Product Description

Product Description

Re-released in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo entertainment system console, Pac-Man lets you munch your way through the maze gobbling up dots to your heart's content. But watch out for Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde, the wandering ghost who hope to make a meal of you as you enjoy this great classic from the early days of Nintendo. Comes in a standard Game Boy Advance box featuring the classic artwork of the original game.

From the Manufacturer

What made Pac-Man an icon of the 1980s and an icon of video game culture? Highly addictive gameplay and shrewd marketing deals of the sort that Mary-Kate and Ashley must lie awake at night wishing they could dream of. Although he's often imitated, it's impossible to replace the original Pac-Man, now part of the NES Classics series for Game Boy Advance.

Pac-Man's brilliant maze-based action made Namco a major player in video games. Not only did this quarter-guzzling yellow dynamo capture the attention of gamers everywhere, it spawned game sequels, cartoons and snappy T-shirt designs. In true American fashion, Pac-Man's cultural immortality was assured by the emergence of a hit single, "Pac-Man Fever."

In the NES Classics game, Pac-Man gets to do what he does best: chomp pellets and ghosts. You maneuver the mouth-man through a maze filled with pellets, fruit, power pellets and ghosts. Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Inky aren't real smart, but they sure move fast as the game progresses. Two players can take turns mastering the maze, either on the same Game Pak or through the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable.

1.0 out of 5 stars The absolute WORST of the Classic NES Series June 16, 2004
PACMAN is the game that basically defined the Arcade. But this isn't the "Classic Arcade Series" its the "Classic NES Series" which means we get the NES version. This is NOT a good thing and while PACMAN is one of the games that will NEVER be forgotten the "Classic NES Series" doesn't capture it in all its glory. PACMAN was a nice classic Arcade game. I wouldn't consider the NES version to be a classic in anyway. There are a few things that stand out as to why.
The gameplay isn't bad. You're PACMAN in a maze eating up little yellow pelts. The Big Pelts give you the chance to capture the ghost.
But as I said some things are just wrong. For example, the Arcade version was a stretched out screen with the score at the top. This version shows the score off to the far right and tries to hard to fit it into the screen. You'll notice that PACMAN, the fruit and the ghost are all bigger than the corridor of the maze.
PACMAN also suffers from what many other Classic NES games suffer from and this one has it bad. For one ITS BEEN RE-RELEASED SEVERAL TIMES! If you have the Namco Museum you're fine (and that's even out on the GBA). Don't buy the classic NES series of PACMAN. Instead buy the Namco Museum package. Not only is it better but its also the Arcade version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chomping Level 1 June 10, 2004
I look at older video games as a way of going back to my days in childhood. Nevertheless, they always brought some basic memories of my days feeling the rhythm of the arcade. That was there with Pac Man. The arcade classic still seems to amaze me from time to time. But, when too much nostalgia seems to simmer around, it is just so difficult to decide. Especially, whether there is the system you own, or the quantity and quality oddly enough, it always comes down to the simplicity of the yellow chomp, and the ghoulish spooks that haunt him. The downside is that there is ultimately too many different ways to get Pac Man.
The 2004, Pac Man for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance, is a consistent enterance, as it was a few years ago with the Pac Man Collection. This version of the game, was made in response to the Classic NES series lineup, a collection series to the 20th anniversary of the original Nintendo Entertainment System, the original super-system, of all video game systems. There really isn't anything new here, as you've played Pac Man here, but the game itself, and its reissuing again. The game features Pac Man, trying to gobble the power pellets, and evading away from the ghouls, that strike at will. The downside is that it really isn't useful, when too many reissuings of Pac Man are all at one, only one should be chosen, and stuck with.
Although Pac Man is great, this isn't the best version of the chomper that is yellow. Instead, I suggest you get the Pac Man Collection edition for the Game Boy Advance. You get this version of Pac Man, as well as three extra games of Pac Man: Pac-Mania, the Tetris-like Pac-Attack, and Pac-Man Arrangement. All in all, I don't suggest this one, for all the nostaglic ones out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can You Say "Perfect Port" ? August 23, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pac-Man has had his fair-share of Ports. Including:
Atari 2600
Atari 5200
NES
Game Boy
Game Gear
Game Boy Color
Game Boy Advance (Pac-Man Collection)
SNES (Pac-Man 2 Arcade)
SEGA Genesis (Pac-Man 2 Arcade)
and on older and Modern Systems in Compilations.

The NES Series for GBA showed us what certain Games were like on the NES , which was likely where you would get the best Ports for that time. The "problem" people have with this is the fact that the NES Port of Pac-Man wasn't explosively different from the Port already available on Pac-Man Collection.

But , seriously , you guys are starting to sound like IGN.

You complain if a Port of Pac-Man is too different (Atari 2600) , but then you ALSO complain the Port is too similar , claiming it's already available! So this Game is already doomed , even though it is amazing.

I personally own a Front-Loading NES and Pac-Man for it (the one Published by Tengen) and , I must say , for once , a Game on the Game Boy Advance has been perfectly Ported.

The only differences are that the Tengen Logos have been replaced with Namco Logos , but the NES Cartridge published by Namco likely had this. Also , the part that explains who the Ghosts are and there character , there is a small difference from the Port released by Tengen. But , it also could have been that way on the Namco-released Cartridge.

Everything has been perfectly Ported , more-or-less , but there's also 2 Extra Menus that can be accessed by holding L and R Bumpers/Triggers (one at the Main Menu , and one when the Game is Paused , displaying "Player [1/2] Ready!" , or when a Cutscene is showing). Even the Ghost Patterns seem to be exact.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's called Classic NES Series! June 17, 2005
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game plays as if you are putting the Pac-Man NES cartridge in the NES. It's supposed to be that way. Of course no "extra features". It's the same as the NES version. I'm getting ticked off now. I DO recommend this. It's a good spend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pac in the day... January 29, 2014
Ok, ok, I know. Pac-Man has been ported onto EVERY system imaginable, including the superior Pac-Man collection. So why bother with this one? Well, for the casual pac-player I would say don't. Get Pac-Man Collection instead, or Pac-Man Galaga Dimensions for the 3DS, both great games. But for the true Pac-Fans out there (you know who you are) you owe it to yourselves to pick this rough jewel up today.
See, this isn't the arcade Pac-Man we're so used to, it's the NES version of the game. The differences are subtle but there. Take a close look at the artwork on the box. Notice the unique shape given to the ghost pictured. Study Pac-Man himself and take in the odd yellow hue he's depicted in, just oh-so darker than we're usually shown. The cherries with the red stems instead of brown. Do you see these examples? Can you tell the difference? If not, then this cart is not for you. Move along. But if you're saying "Oh, yeah, look at that!" then perhaps you should give it a go. Think of the other subtle surprises that await, both in sight and sound. Still, the changes in art and gameplay are not drastic enough to warrent a purchase from any but the die hard fan, and technicaly there are better versions of this classic out there, hence the four stars instead of five.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was fun when it didn't cost $25
Pac-Man, before Donkey Kong, was an even bigger smash hit in the arcades.

The NES port of the game does pretty well. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Um..What? Excuse me?
This is "Classic NES Series". I'm sure Pacman was released on the NES,but why the heck is it in this series?

Still,it's a great game,if you like Pacman.
