5.0 out of 5 stars "Pac Man" Lives!
For those of you old enough to remember, this is a classic early 80's "Pac Man" style games console replete with gameplay involving power pellets that you eat and those pesky ghosts that you have to run away from! Although the individual characters graphics (such as the "Pac Man" style character or the Ghosts) are a little on the small side, this is due to the size of the...

This review is from: Arcade Classic Handheld Electronic Maze Game (Toy)
For those of you old enough to remember, this is a classic early 80's "Pac Man" style games console replete with gameplay involving power pellets that you eat and those pesky ghosts that you have to run away from! Although the individual characters graphics (such as the "Pac Man" style character or the Ghosts) are a little on the small side, this is due to the size of the maze that they run around in and their colourful look makes up for this. In fact, gameplay is more advanced than on an old Munchman ("Pac Man" style) games console that I've kept from the 1980s, as this Arcade Classic Pac Man has 4 linked mazes that you enter when you move off-screen from an exit point. This means that on this Arcade Classic game you enter a different maze when moving off-screen rather than just re-entering the same maze from the other side of the screen as with the old 1980's Munchman. This makes gameplay on this Arcade Classic console more developed than I expected and was a welcome surprise to have a 4-maze/multi-level game. The console itself, although smaller in size than I anticipated, has a quality feel to it and is styled in period-accurate yellow and black and comes with a help-line telephone number if there are any problems; the company that makes it is headquartered in England. It is just the right size for a kid to slip into his schoolbag so that he can impress his mates in class! Sound quality from the console is also very good. It has direction buttons rather than a joystick but this is fine as my old original 1980's Munchman also had the same and the gameplay on this Arcade Classic console helps in that "Pac Man" will keep moving in the direction you press until you press another button to direct him otherwise. The "Pac Man" and Ghost characters on this Arcade Classic game are all Wild-West styled with cow-boy hats to differentiate them from the original trademarked Pac Man, the trademark owners of whom don't seem to want to bother to produce any stand alone consoles, so I'm glad that Arcade Classic have stepped in and done a version of their own. Even though this Arcade Classic console is quite small and the corresponding graphics are quite small, they are authentic looking and rely upon a light source to come though the back of the unit, so sit under a light or by a window; I remember this type of console from the '80s. This is literally a real blast from the past and bought to "educate" my 6 year old nephew in old school "Pac Man" and so that he can keep this as a momento of his childhood i.e. a stand-alone traditional arcade games console; a rarity indeed. Well worth the money, recommended. Fun!
