Super Pacman
When you have a very, very popular game, what do you do?  Make as many sequels as you can!  This is one of the those sequels to Pacman, possibly the most popular game of all-time.  While the game is maze oriented and 2D like the original, there is much more to it.  This time the maze is closed off to you.  You cannot just move around anywhere you want, you have to unlock areas by eating keys.  Eating keys?  Maybe it is me, but I always thought people swallowed keys to keep something locked, not the opposite.  Leave it to Paccy to get things backwards.  Who knows, maybe he is storing them in his mouth and has a prehensile tongue.  

(Now that's a big pacman!)

Back to the review, this game has you moving through the maze, clearing it and having to unlock sections to get access to them.  There is the typical energizers which give you the ability to eat the ghosts and something new, the ability to turn into Super Pacman!  This is a huge Pacman who can run through the locked sections of the maze and cause all kinds of damage!  But like the energizers, this is a temporary power, so don't waste it.  

There are some nice touches in this game.  First, instead of just eating dots, you move around the maze eating hamburgers and other items, yummy!  Plus, the locked sections force you to pay attention.  If you don't, you may find yourself at a dead end (like the tunnel, make sure both sides are unlocked) and this can be a big problem.  All in all, it is a fun variation on the Pacman theme and one that I do recommend.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
