I don't own the game, but I have beaten it.

Review

Good

  • The cartoon graphics are cute and quirky, especially during the cut-scenes.
  • The jazzy music is decent and fitting for the game.
  • Because the game is so easily understood, pretty much anyone can pick it up and play it.
  • "Extra" mode is a nice way to get a little more life out of the game.

Bad

  • The small display window makes it very difficult to see where the police are. Most of the time I died it was because I trapped myself between a chasing cop and an unseen cop.
  • The game is pretty repetitive. Enemies are pretty much all the same, and there are only a handful of map objects to interact with.
  • Although I generally like hard mode, it's just all the same maps, but with more cops. Kind of dull.
  • Having unlimited continues pretty much guarantees you'll beat the game, even if you're not that good, with enough persistence.

Ugly

  • The games doesn't really add all that much to the formula of Pac-Man released ten years earlier.
