Have you ever used the bridge to get what we called the dot? Once you have the dot you can break through the solid line wall and see credits. Exciting stuff back in 1984.
It's funny, when this came out I had to have it. I even knew it was bad in many ways, but I had played it at my friend's house and I guess I bought into the hype because I had my mom drive me around until we found a copy. 3 stores later, I finally found a store that wasn't sold out and I paid $37.95 for it (a record for me at the time) at a store ironically called Pay & Save.
This game must be something like a prelude to Road Race. The programmer is different, but the sounds, graphics, control, changing of seasons, and daytime is just like it was in TGACCRR. As for A2600 it's great!

I was the original programmer & also did all the graphics, before being laid off and then Mike finished it. I also have chips from before Mike worked on it. The dungeon layouts were my friend's intials. See http://www.intellivisionlives.com/bluesky/games/credits/atari3.shtml
Sorry Paul, but the other guys are right. This PacMan sucks, and even at 14 years of age, I knew it sucked then. It seems like it was hastily put together; not a lot of effort or thought. Ms and Jr are WAY better using the same hardware.
I'm surprised to find this so high in the Top 100. Ms PacMan and Jr are far far better. Even in "the day" when video games were crazy exciting, I knew I got ripped off with this poorly programmed Pac Man. It's pretty bad.
I wonder if CSK is an abbreviation for CONY SOFT of KOREA. According to BootlegGames wiki [verbatim], "In Taiwan the trademarks for both "Yokosoft" and "Conysoft" are registered to the Hong Kong based "Wonderful Trading Company" (??????)". Only problem with this theory is it says they were located in Taiwan/Hong Kong. Food for thought.
So many of the Activision games were beautifully rendered...but just not all that involved. Its a wonder I owned as many as I did, back in the day.
