Pac Man on Atari 2600 VCS
This is a short video clip of me playing Pac-Man on the Atari 2600 VCS retro video games console.
Pac-Man, released by Namco in Japan in 1980, is the definitive arcade maze game. I'd be very surprised if anyone at all was unaware of this game, so I won't bother describing it here.
The Atari 2600 version is a very poor conversion, featuring blocky, flickering graphics that bear little resemblance to the arcade original, and mazes that don't change after each level.
The game buying public became sick of shoddy games being sold for ridiculous prices, and so simply stopped buying games.
This and the other retro gaming clips on this site aren't intended as full game reviews, but are simply to give viewers who weren't around when these games were popular, an idea of what video games used to be like.
