A multi-layered translation of the 1982 Arcade classic, Ms. Pac-Man for the Super NES brings the eternally hungry Pac-Man's significant other to the 16-bit world of home videogames. The original version of Ms. Pac-Man introduced four mazes instead of one, bouncing fruit and seemingly random ghost movement to the Pac-Man formula. No longer could Arcade rats memorize patterns and play for hours on the same quarter.
Instead of a mere four different game screens like in the Arcade game, the Super NES version features 36 mazes, including strange, big and miniature. Munch all the dots in a maze and it's on to the next level. Eat one of the big dots (energizer pills) and you can turn the tables on the ever-present, always pesky ghosts, devouring them for extra points.
You can play Ms. Pac-Man by yourself or take turns with a friend. Pac-Man himself shows up in two-player cooperative and competitive modes. Difficulty levels include normal, easy, hard and crazy. To kick the game into high gear, play with the Pac Booster option on and watch Ms. Pac-Man really fly. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
