If anyone here has actually played the original Pac Man, they will know that it starts out very slow and gets faster. They will also know that the board doesn't change during the run of the game. If you want it to be faster or to change, go play Ms. Pac Man. But, if you just wait one round, the game starts speeding up and then maybe you will be satisfied. I love this game and I think Namco did an awesome job putting this on mac. I don't car if you have a 6gb ram 4.2 processor. NOBODY CARES!!! The game is fine and is supposed to be that way. If you can't handle it, then go ask your mom to drive you down to the local Gamestop and buy you a Call of Duty. A+ Namco.
Despite the complaints about this version of Pac-Man running too slow, I tried it out for myself, and found that it's an excellent version of the game. Anyone who enjoyed the original arcade version of Pac-Man will be more than satisfied with this app! My only complaint, and it's a minor one, is that I wish you could change the borders to something that resembles the original arcade screen bezel artwork (similar to what they've done with the Xbox Live versions). Otherwise, this game is pretty much perfect. I especially love how the names of the ghosts in the attract mode are the original Japanese names!
needs some adjustment
It has what it says it has, PAC-MAN, and thats about it.
The screen size options are very limited and you have to go back to the app page if you forget them, because it is not listed anywhere in the app itself (you het the number keys 1-5 to change the screen size for those who dont know).
There is also no option to change the volume within the app, which is a big problem when it comes to PAC-MAN, because it means I have to listen to WACAWACAWACAWACA whenever I have this running in the background and tab out to do something else, I also like to listen to music when I play games, which is impossible with the loud and constant sounds coming for this game.
Other than that, the game works, you use the arrow keys to play and it has some pretty decent instructions/rules on the side of the screen for those who have not played PAC-MAN before, and all the original machanics and sounds as the arcade version of PAC-MAN.
