Did you know that the original name for Pac-Man was Puck-Man? You'd think it was because he looks like a hockey puck but it actually comes from the Japanese phrase 'Paku-Paku,' which means to flap one's mouth open and closed. They changed it because they thought Puck-Man would be too easy to vandalize, you know, like people could just scratch off the P and turn it into an F or whatever.


Lol @ the reference

How is Ms. Pacman better than the original, exactly? Isn't it the same thing except Pacman has a red bow and lipstick?


Hell no.

My, how informative.


Ms Pacman's maze's change.

Pacman only has 1 maze

Ms Pacman's fruit floats around the maze

Pacman's fruit stays in place under the ghost hangout

Ms Pacman's got better AI

Pacman's ghost travel on preset paths

and so on, and to the one dude who posted above. Yea it was a hack originally man :)

but bah, my favorite is Jr. Pacman and i just wish someday they would get over that one and release it on a newer console.

^Thanks for filling me in. Honestly, all this time I thought they just changed the sprite and slapped a new name on it.

I'd love one of the new pac man games from the xbl/psn being converted.


Pacman, PacmanCE , Pacman Tilt, Galaga, Galaga Legions and Galaga 3D Impact are all on the retail pac & galaga dimensions.


I didn't know that, but still a lil expensive :(


I just picked it up for $20 at GameStop.

I tried out Aero Porter, and I did not like it. It is a deceptively difficult game, and it requires exceptional timing and patience to do well, something I generally lack in. While it's a neat concept, I did not have fun playing it. At least it's only $4.99.

Invasion of the Alien Blobs!, however, is quite fun. It's a tap-mashing game, but you need some strategy to go far in the later levels, since it's easy to get overwhelmed with blobs in just 10 sec. Definitely worth the $1.99 to me.
