Title
I think this game is a lot better than the Pacman port. The problem with the Pac man port is that it tries really hard to look like Pacman while giving up the gameplay of pacman due to the limitations of the console. With this on the other hand they go for a very minimalist design and concept to make it a more convincing experience than any other pacman rip off games. It also visually runs smoother since there isn't any sprite flashing.

A thing I really like about the gameplay of this one as compared to pacman and other pacman rip off games is that with the press of the main button you can lock the doors behind you and sidetrack the guards chasing you. It makes the entire dynamic and idea of the game feel a lot different than playing a lot of other games like it.

Overall it isn't nearly as bad as everyone on the site is making it out to be. Solid game and I've had a lot of fun with it.
