Pac-Man has become an icon of both the video game industry and the 80's. Though certainly one of the most popular arcade games of all times, the initial leap to the home system was rather pathetic. The sounds are bad, the maze is simple, and the yellow mouthed dude just doesn't look right. Still, the public ate it up, making Pac-Man one of the best sellers for the 2600. It was later included with some new 2600 systems. As for game play, you know the story - eat the dots, don't eat the ghosts unless you turn them blue by eating an energy pill, yada yada yada.
