Gameplay: 4/5

No power pellets, only three ghosts, non-traditional map, and it runs a bit slow, but it is Pac-Man on the TI-84+ with no game-breaking flaws.

Controls: 4/5

Not perfect, but good for Pac-Man

Graphics: 3/5

Satisfactory. No greyscale, but I think after seeing too many ultra-light games I'm in the mood for some black and white. I like how Pac-Man is animated.

Interface: 2/5

I'm giving it such a low score because the MirageOS one was apparently incompatible with my (fully updated) TI-84+ and I had to send over the ion program. It's a good size though and has high scores.

Replayability: 4/5

Hey, it's Pac-Man and there's high scores. Not as fun as the real thing but can get you through those boring days in math class.

Average: 3.4/5

Overall: 3/5

Average game and probably the better Pac-Man game out there. I wrote this review because Pac-Man 99 was bothering me. Pac-Man 99 has so many more features (scrolling map, 4 ghosts, faster, power pellets) but yet missed what makes a good game. This one lacks in features but is far more fun to play. If thee two designers would work together to make a Pac-Man game that's just like the original that would amazing but I don't see that happening. As for now, this is the Pac-Man game of choice.

This is a very nice Pacman clone... It has everything Pacman can have! (except the powerup at allows you to eat the ghosts) I had a lot of fun playing this game and i still love it! It has the best graphics for pacman on the TI-83/84 calcs at the moment, but the gameplay does get boring after some plays, since it is extremely difficult to get over level 5 lol... i always run out my last life there... The difficulty is quite even through out, very challenging and addicting! (DOWNLOAD NOW! ITS WORTH IT!)

gameplay 8/10

(very challenging and addicting, needs powerup though)

graphics 9/10

(really nice for pacman!)

Controls 10/10

(nothing else can be added)

Memory 7/10

(the programs size is small and really nice.. but the highscore variable doesn't archive itself...)

replay 10/10

(it just keeps going. it has a highscore list too)

One of the best Ti-84 games I've played, utilizes graphics, game play same as regular pac-man, Pretty good. Although it lacks most of the features in all pacman such as the tunnels tele-porting you from side to side. Also the full dots allowing you to eat enimies, no cherrys bonus fruits enemy re-spawn.



Almost perfect except... they didn't get god to come down from the heavens and bless it!



Nearly the same as pac-man, good to pass the time. Like I said lacks many features.



5000b is good, great for its game play.

A very good version of pacman for your calc.

graphics 10/10

It look great especially the screen you get when you're dead looks good.

Gameplay 9/10

It's a very addicting game, because it's not easy and not to hard and it's just as fun as the real version.

Controls 10/10


The Mirageos version of the game doesn't work, but the Ion version does.

Overall 10/10

A great game to play.
