Ms Pac-Man on Atari 2600 VCS

This is a short video clip of me playing Ms Pac-Man on the Atari 2600 VCS retro video games console.

Ms Pac-Man originally came into being as a bootleg hack of Pac-Man, programmed by a bunch of students working for General Computer Corporation (GCC). It is largely similar to the original Pac-Man, with a few tweaks, such as bonus fruits, a little pink bow on the Pac character, and higher difficulty level.
Following a legal battle between GCC and Midway (the US distributor), the game was handed over to Namco, who owned the rights to Pac-Man.
Though the game was in arcades as an unofficial Midway/Namco release, there is no mention of it in any of Namco's archives.

The Atari 2600 version of the game, though obviously inferior to the arcade original, is a massive improvement over their previous Pac-Man release, and is in truth, what Pac-Man really should have turned out like.

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.
