Here is another great video from Vestron’s “How to Beat Video Games” series, explaining how to beat “Pac-Man” for the Atari 5200:
Great Pac-Man advice for *actual* pacplay – none of that ‘pattern’ nonsense.
Though I dunno if the 5200 version had locked-down patterns.
Always wanted to play the attractive 5200 games.
Is this beat Pac-Man with the crappy original non centering controllers or the later they actually go back to center controllers?
I was going to buy an Atari 5200 in my wayward youth until I went to Sears (when they had games out to try in the old days) and tried this very game. Said “Screw this!” and grabbed a Colecovision.
The controller is really the undoing of the 5200. Not that I found Colecovision’s controllers to be more comfortable, but at least they worked.
