Given we've been playing Super Pacman in the most recent MGL (MGL 41) I decided to finally check out the C64 port. It plays surprisingly well and smoothly; getting quite fast and challenging as early as level 2. It becomes super tough to eat all of the ghosts as they are vulnerable for far less time I think than in the original arcade. I got 28 k first game but managed to inch out a little more in the second and make round 6. A fun conversion!

My technique was clumsy with the ghosts though, so a more astute player will definitely improve on this. 

I included a snap of my C64 setup including the trusty WICO BOSS. An SD2IEC was used to boot Super Pacman.

I had one or two of those back in the day for my Atari 2600 laugh
