A decent collection, with a few bumps.
This cartridge is a good bargain bin deal; 4 games in one for a cheap, cheap price. It contains the Original Pac-Man, Pac-Man Arrangement, Pac-Attack, and Pac-Mania.
The Original Pac-Man is exactly what you expect, just Pac-Man, no more, no less. You have the ability to select screen sizes like the old Game Boy version.
Pac-Man Arrangement is taken from the Namco Classic Collection Vol, 2 from the arcades. Graphics-wise, it's slightly watered down, but the gameplay is mostly intact. This is the most fun out of the entire bunch.
Pac-Attack is that puzzler they made for the SNES/Sega Genesis in the 90's where ghosts are arranged by the player in way that Pac-Man (as a sort-of Tetris piece) can gobble them up in a line. This one can become addicting for a short while, but there not a whole lot to do aside from a puzzle mode and the two-player mode is sadly omitted.
Pac-Mania is ported from the arcade version, and is basically the same exact thing, except the music has been watered down severly.
The bad news is that you can't save your high scores at all, and some of your favorite Pac-Man games didn't make it to this collection. Seriously, they couldn't fit in Ms. Pac-Man? That one was particularly successful, so I don't see how it could NOT be in the collection.
Overall, it's okay as a time-passer, but I think you can do better to get your fix of portable Pac-Man these days. However, if you want to buy, at least buy it used.
