Pac-Man is one of the few video game characters that truly needs no introduction. The little yellow gobbler dominated the arcades in the 80s, and now Namco has unleashed him to a new generation of players with the introduction of Pac-Man Special Color Edition. You don't need a Game Boy Color to play this one, but it sure loses a lot of its appeal when played in black and white.

While this isn't an exact translation of the original arcade game, it's still a lot of fun to play. Your job remains the same: guide Pac-Man around a maze, gathering pellets and avoiding ghosts. When the level is cleared you just do the same thing all over again, only faster. We were disappointed that the playing field never changes, but Namco can be forgiven since they also threw the bonus game Pac-Attack on the cartridge. It's an addictive little Tetris-like game that also has a challenging puzzle mode, and it serves as a nice break when maze-running gets a little stale. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Classic arcade gameplay
  • Bonus Pac-Attack game is fairly fun
Cons:
  • Maze doesn't change

I found this game very difficult to play on GameBoy due to the setup of the GameBoy controller, and the size of the screen. The pac-man does not maneuver very easily with the X-style controller. Also, the screen does not show the entire maze, and must pan as you maneuver. This becomes confusing, especially when trying to plan a strategy. I would not recommend this game for GameBoy.

A great classic game, but for those Old-School Pacman players please note that this game does not change the maze, EVER. It just continually increases the speed of the game untill the gosts are a blur and you cant possibly win. There IS an option to make the Game FULL screen if you read the game manual.

I remember being absolutely fascinated with Pac-Man when it first came out. It was truly groundbreaking and I had to get it when I bought my Game Boy Color. As others have said, it is a little hard to control with the Game Boy pad thing and not the joystick and I have lost several lives because of that difficulty. Also, others here have complained that the maze doesn't change at all but I'm 99.9-100% sure that it never changed at all in the original arcade version. It was Ms. Pac-Man that introduced changing mazes.

Pacman is always a fun game, I was surprised however that no one mentioned how hard it is to see the blue lines that make up the maze. Unless you have a very strong light on the screen, you may waste some time missing a turn because the blue maze boundaries are so hard to view. LOVED the additional tetris-like game, now I dont have to buy the original!

I'm an old timer who remembers the original PacMan. This is quite enjoyable, but as another reviewer has said, it is quite difficult to play on the game boy. Fun for idle moments, though.
I much prefer the PacMan world game on PlayStation - far more challenging and very simple to play. END

The iconic yellow muncher has made a second leap to Game Boy, but with a lesser-known great by its side: Pac-Attack.

Pac-Man is that fun and addicting arcade game you'd play at your local video arcade.

Eat the dots, munch the ghosts, finish the mazes, you know the drill!

Pac-Attack is a Tetris-inspired puzzle game where, after certain blocks, you must guide Pac-Man to where there's a line of ghosts to eat up. You can also clear lines like in Tetris. There's also a Puzzle Mode where you HAVE to eat all the ghosts. If Pac-Man misses, one Pac-Man is docked off. You would normally start with 3 per level (Or is it 5?).

Overall, I recommend you get this portable classic.

I have always played Pac Man with two hands. One hand for movements to the right, and the other hand for movements to the left. Either hand for up or down.
On the Game Boy, you can only navigate with one hand (the thumb) in all directions. It is very difficult, especially for players who are used to the arcade, joystick, or even computer version. Like a person above stated, I miss a lot of moves because of this. I'm getting better though.
