It's Space Invaders, basically, but with a few changes. The enemies don't wobble down in rows, but instead individually swoop at you. The enemies not getting closer takes some of the tension away, but it's a more sophisticated game for it. You also don't get any bases to defend you from enemy fire, but then again there's more room to blast the buggers. This VCS version is a lot better than the clones I've played on the ST, and is a well deserved winner.

Everyone's heard the amusing story of how Pac-Man was originally called Puck-Man in Japan. In the west Puck-Man had to have a name change due to the fact Puck could be easily altered into something rather rude. The 2600 version is undeniably average, and bloody hard, and is a easy one to add to your collection, mainly due to it being one of those over produced games like ET, which everyone seemed to own. The ghosts are particularly nasty, and are always coming after you en-masse. There are a few control problems, but nothing that you can't get used to, and you imagine that it could be a little prettier looking, but, it's Pac-Man alright...
