Arcade 1984 Dos F.Bataille Single screen Epic Item collection

Another pill gobbling clone

If you've ever felt the need to play the arcade hit Pacman in French, then this is the game for you. Like other clones such as PC Man and Pac-Maine, it's a complete ripoff of the classic original and brings absolutely nothing new to the table, thus making it a questionable addition to the world of gaming. Just in case you've been living under a rock in a mountain in a far away land for the last thirty or so years and don't actually know who Pacman is, he's the little yellow blob that is the star of one of the most enduring franchises in gaming history. This take on his first game is basically a maze game where you have to run around gobbling little pills (no one is quite sure why this is necessary but in gaming, some questions don't need to be asked). There are of course some enemies running around, in this case the memorable lineup of ghosts, while you can also grab the infamous power pill (one of the most well known powerups in gaming legend) in order to turn the tables on those infuriating devils. Nothing has really changed here in this version and you can either consider that a good or bad thing. If you enjoy the classic gameplay and fancy playing yet another version, then you're likely to get a kick out of this. It's no better or worse than most other clones, with controls that are as responsive as you could hope for, although the visuals are lacking a little something. The gameplay remains as enthralling as ever, and although it's little more than a high score chaser, there is no denying that it stands the test of time. However, at the end of the day, you're better off sticking with the original for the purest experience, so unless you're a collector, dig out the real classic.
