Review by Psycho Penguin

"Basically, its Pac Man in 3D"

Pac Man was a pretty cool game, I have to admit. But did the "sequel" fare as well? Well, yeah, although there are some problems with the game, including that dang 3d View.

GRAPHICS 8/10
The graphics were pretty good, but is a system like NES really capable at handling a game like this? Slowdown is prevailiant, and there is a lot of graphical breakup. The variety of stages is cool though, and the graphics are kinda nice.

CONTROL 7/10
You know there's a flaw when the computer decides to take over control for a little while. At least the game didn't have sensistive control.

GAMEPLAY 9/10
Umm, remember the original Pac Man? Pac Mania is just like it. Basically, you're this yellow...thing, and you have to go around eating power pellets. Special pellets temproarily turn the ghosts to blue, which allow you to eat them for more points. The object of each stage is to eat all the power pellets. Simple right? But then theres also a jumping factor. Some enemies can jump when you try to jump, so be careful!

FUN FACTOR 8/10
This is pretty much like the original Pac Man, but the jumping factor is a cool addition. While not as fun as the first, it still is a very decent and somewhat fun game!
