Attention span: 8/10 The addictive gameplay of the original mixed with a fair variety of levels. No fruit, though.
Controls: 7/10 So it's hard to stop him accurately enough to get into narrow passages. It's tradition!
Implementation: 7/10 Pretty good, but not really true to the original.
Overall: 8/10 Starring... INKY!! PINKY!! BLINKY!! CLYDE!! And..... PAC-MAN!!!! The Nintendo Borg shall not be permitted to erase him from our memories.

Before there was Mario, before there was Sonic, before there was Crash Bandicoot, there was Pac-Man. He was the poster child of a new industry that defined a generation, and even today, in the Video Game Star Retirement Home with forgotten faces like Luigi, Captain Keen, and the White Paddle from Pong, he continues to be a part of today's culture.

Pac-Man 99 is one of thousands of clones for every gaming system imaginable. The little yellow guy, although not yellow, is as hungry as ever here, and the Pacicidal nature of Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde remains unchanged. However, little else does. The maze of lines and dots contained in the scrolling viewscreen is not the same one that lit up on arcade screens across America, and where there were once only four power pills for Pac-Man to eat at the corners of the mazes, they are everywhere here. Fortunately, they don't last very long, and it's harder to catch and eat the ghosts here than in the original.

Graphics are fairly true to the original, although someone did see fit to poke a hole in poor Pac-Man's head for an eye, whereas the faithful know that his only true facial feature is a large mouth. The ghosts are rather difficult to see when you've eaten a power pill.

If not as true to the original as it could be, this is probably the best calculator Pac-Man clone I've seen to date.
