Gobble gobble. Wacka wacka wacka. Inky, Blinky, et. al.
Replay Value: 4
Notes: 1- or 2-player game; ROM variant exists
I think Pac‑Man is one of the best arcade adaptations for
the Intellivision. Some people complain vocally about the control of Pac-Man,
but I must say that I haven't found it too annoying. The sound effects are
excellent, and the graphics are pretty faithful to the arcade game. Even the
prizes are well-rendered. I was especially happy to see the intermissions. I
haven't gotten too far into the game yet to see how many there are.
Best Score: 66790
So far, I've gotten the following prizes:
|Two ROM variations exist.
|So far, four variations have been found.

|Has 'FOR 1 OR 2 PLAYERS' on front of box; UPC bar code, but no game title on bottom flap
The two box variants by INTV for Pac-Man vary not only in the presence of the
'FOR 1 OR 2 PLAYERS' text on the front of the box, but also
by what's displayed on the bottom flap of the box. Some copies of the
'FOR 1 OR 2 PLAYERS' version have the UPC symbol on the
bottom flap. Otherwise, the boxes just have 'PAC-MAN' on the bottom.
Game title appears on bottom flap of box
The UPC barcode appears on the bottom flap of the box, game title has been removed
As described on the official site, the INTV Corporation re-release of
Pac-Man also included a change to the ROM. The change just removed the
Atarisoft logo from the game - and hence removed the bug / Easter egg, too.
Atarisoft Title Screen
The result of the tinkered ROM is this title screen:
