National Game Registry 1983: Jr. Pac-Man

Jr. Pac-Man is the most ambitious of Midway’s semi-legal Pac-Man sequels.  Although the game engine and graphics are identical to the original, the mazes are now three screens wide.  The ghosts are very fast and aggressive, which is offset by a large number of power pellets distributed throughout the maze.  Even so, clearing a single screen is an accomplishment.

Jr. Pac-Man was inducted on April 11th, 2009.
