Pac-Man is arguably the most recognizable video game character of all time. He has made an appearance in some form or another on almost every system — from the Atari 2600 to the Sony Playstation — so it should come as no surprise that he is also available in portable form with Pac-Man for the Nintendo Game Boy.
As Pac-Man, a hungry, chomping creature, your goal is to clear a maze of dots while avoiding ghosts. Power pills are eaten to make the ghosts turn blue, which is a signal that they are susceptible to your voracious appetite.
The game has necessarily changed a bit from the original arcade version in order to squeeze it into the confines of the Game Boy's small, gray-scale screen. The entire maze doesn't fit on the screen and instead scrolls as you move through it. And unlike the arcade version, where each ghost was a different color and Pac-Man was yellow, here everyone is all the same shade of gray. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
