Sunday Screening: Retro Gaming – Plug & Play Ms Pac-Man

40 years ago, for my birthday in 1982, my parents got me Ms. Pac-Man for the Atari 2600.  Those of us who had a 2600 were well aware of the compromises made in consideration to graphics.  Even so, Ms. Pac-Man was one of the best Atari adaptations.

Last weekend, on what turned out to be my birthday celebration for 2022, I turned back the clock and played Ms. Pac-Man again.  The arcade version, thanks to these excellent plug & play games.  I didn’t have the greatest game – I’m out of practice – but you can see my old high score on the screen.  I made it to level three this time at least!

  1. I really like playing the old-style simple games where you can have a great time getting to level three. I’m not a huge fan of having to spend 60+ hours to get through a game.
