    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.
    Maybe someday.

    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.
