Title: Famicom Pac-Man Championship Edition!!
Post by: Profeta Yoshitake on February 26, 2009, 10:02:55 am
Hi there, people!

I've been ages away, sadly, and I'm coming back with a great question.
I bet everybody saw this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJ4mTeFK2cs), but my question is: is this ROM available???
Do anyone have this ROM already???
Is this for real? Or too much for the 6502 and his friends to deal with?

Help me, please!

Looks like an 8 bit recreation made for PC etc.  If it does exist - we'll see it sooner or later:

Oh yeah, it seems to be an all new game, obviously based
on the XBOX Live version.

Well, let me know if you guys discover something about this
great new Famicom game!

;)

Oh I def will, I'd love to have this on the go.  Same as a Pac Man vs!

It seems to run much quicker than I'd expect the little famicom to handle, I hope it is a real possibility to make a repro of this.

I messaged him and asked him about it and if he could send me the ROM.
I hope he speaks English, because his comments thingy was in Japanese. :-\

vgthing, maybe if you ask him nicely, manuel might be willing to translate what you want to know. He's fluent in English AND Japanese you know.

Isnt this the Famicom rerelease version for the Gameboy Advance? I thought they did a version of all the classic gaes Metroid, Zelda etc with Famicom labels, boxes etc

They did, but this isn't that.  That was just a GBA port of the famicom version of pac man, nothing more.  They had to adjust the game slightly as the famicom has higher native resolution than the GBA, but other than that it's the oldie bang on, I have all those and they're really great!

If anyone buys Retro Gamer magazine theres a full article about the history of Pacman in there including a detailed interview with the games creator.

I saw that, I skipped straight to the Mega CD (or 32X) section though!

I'd love to buy it, but the cost to send it to Brazil is a hard drawback to me.
By the way, Corisco [another brazillian FW member] asked the same thing, in japanese and politely, too.
The response from the Pac-Man CE's creator?
None.  :'(
