Review by Tom Allen
4 Stars out of 4

The minor programming problems that existed in the Game Boy Color version of Pac-Man have been fixed for the release of Ms. Pac-Man. I am not a die-hard fan of old-school games, but this cartridge entertained me a great deal.

Ms. Pac-Man includes a bonus game that is just as meaty as the marquee title. Super Pac-Man adds the concept of gates and keys to the Pac-Man format. At first, the game seems odd, but if you try collecting all the keys first (to open the gates), you will quickly find the game to be just as well-designed as traditional mazes.

This portable version of Ms. Pac-Man offers something that no previous version contained. The instruction manual will tell you how to play the game with the entire maze in view at all times. No more scrolling! Plus, this feature is instantly available from the start of the game. Namco thankfully doesn't force you to "earn" the feature.

Giving this game an "A" may seem foolish, but few games sustain interest levels as long as this one. The Game Boy is the perfect format for a game like this; you will play Ms. Pac-Man more on Game Boy than you did for any other system. Lastly, I just have to say: Ms. Pac-Man is also the perfect game to play on the crapper, and yes, I speak from experience.
