Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pac-Man Collection (Video Game)
I grew up in the 80s playing Atari and arcade games. So when I purchased my new Gameboy Advance SP, I immediately wanted to buy Pac-Man. I definitely was not disappointed. The cartridge contains 4 different games. The basic Pac-Man game is a good replica of the arcade version, replete with Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. It can be played in full-screen or scroll version. The full-screen version is a bit small, but I find the scroll version difficult to play as you cannot see what the characters are doing on other parts of the board.
PacMania 3D and Pac-Man Arrangement are variations on the classic Pac-Man. Pac-Man Arrangement is my least favorite of the 4 games. Although the board is colorful, the floating dots add nothing. I also find it somewhat confusing, and it's difficult to control. PacMania 3D is enjoyable and includes several 3D worlds. You can make your Pac-man jump, and the ghosts have great menacing glares.
However, Pac-Attack is definitely my favorite game here - a brilliant variation on Tetris. Like Tetris, the falling blocks must be arranged. Some of the blocks contain ghosts and some contain a Pac-Man, and the goal is to arrange the ghosts so that you can eat them. It's pretty addicting. Overall, I'm really enjoying this collection. Most highly recommended.

Would you recommend this to me, even though I have "Pacman World?"
