YOU need a copy of Ms. Pac-Man for Intellivision from Intelligentvision

Ms. Pac-Man for Intellivision Mattel's Intellivision wasn't known for arcade ports. As an Atari-kid, my 2600 let me unlock tons of arcade classics at home. I loved visiting arcades, but there was something grand about playing Space Invaders... at home!

I played Intellivision with a friend who owned one, but he was really into the sports games, which really weren't my thing. I much preferred Asteroids over Mattel's Astrosmash. A notable exception to this was Pac-Man! While Atari released an awful version with just as much flicker as Defender, Mattel's Pac-Man was quite the gem.

If you didn't buy Pac-Man for your Intellivision in 1983, then you certainly should buy Intelligentvision's Ms. Pac-Man in 2015!

Ms. Pac-Man for Intellivision Ms. Pac-Man is much more than an arcade port. While faithful to the original, it boasts several features that take it to a new level.

  • You can play the game with 3 different characters each having their own unique characteristic.
  • There are 2 different difficulty levels of ghost.
  • The game can be played with different rules for ghost movement.
  • You can play one of 4 different maze themes or have the mazes randomly selected.
  • Option to use high speed movement
  • Intermission screens are included

Check out Intelligentvision's website for more info and ordering instructions. And look into Pac-Man on the Intellivision, if you don't already own it. :)
