Pac-Man has been on more systems than I can count. I thought it might be fun to review Pac-Man on the Neo Geo Pocket. This little hand held title contains a full screen mode, and a scroll mode. Players can in essence play seeing the entire field, or zoom in on Pac-Man. I like how the zoomed in feature looks, but not being able to see where the ghosts are led to multiple game over screens.

The lighting is not the greatest on the Neo Geo Pocket. I struggled to see what was going on in Pac-Man. I can see where this could lead to a headache, especially family members prone to migraines. When I could see the graphics they looked like arcade quality Pac-Man visuals.

The sounds in Pac-Man also match the arcade quality sounds of the original game. It is funny that I played a retro game on a retro system, that was based on an even older, more retro game. One of the reasons the Neo Geo Pocket failed is it did not give gamers many new experiences. If you played Pac-Man on other systems there was little reason to purchase this version.

The controls in Pac-Man are generally okay. The little joystick on the Neo Geo Pocket usually responded as expected. There were a few irritating misses.
