Man oh MAN I wanted to love this game so so damn much! I am an absolute sucker for platform games with cute graphics and bold colours, and Pac-Land had this in spades. The movement of Pac always seemed a bit off and stiff, and there was this little delay when you tried to slow down. Jumping was a bit of a hit and miss affair, but those things I could look over if it wasn’t for the pool sections. Every now and then there would be this diving board that you were meant to use to jump over this big pool and apparently you had to wiggle the stick a lot and I never got it right and just remembering it makes me angry damn it.

Does anyone remember the Pac-Man cartoon that Pac-Land was based on? Yikes!
