1D Pac-Man

Post by Juan F. Ramirez »

Just noticed about it and I think it's interesting enough to make a Spectrum version:

Yeah I'd been looking at the same. It's fun and definitely doable on the spectrum.

Yes, I thought it would be interesting to take the concept but apply the gameplay and feel of Pacman more closely, especially as I already had the assets. It's coming along quite well.

Game could be more fun, if you could also go up and down. :mrgreen:

Agreed. Maybe walls that constrain where you can go, like a maze, and more ghosts.

I quite like the idea of a Jumping Jack remake but now with Pacman and Ghosts.

One of my favourite Atari 2600 games "Jawbreaker" was a bit like that.

Would love to see a Speccy or even a Next remake of that. 🤔
