Pac-Man NES - GFX Restoration

Hack of Pac-Man

Description:

Pac-Man NES - GFX Restoration is a hack that aims to address everything that may have been visually inaccurate in Pac-Man NES compared to its arcade source material.

Many, if not the majority of sprites and color palettes seen in-game have been updated from their original NES appearances to resemble those of the arcade game as closely as possible, given the limitations of the NES hardware.

A new title screen graphic and some minor text fixes were also implemented.

The Best Improvement Ever!

Reviewed By: SuperStarFox on 23 May 2020

I Like This Rom-Hack Because…

1. Pac-Man’s Sprites Are Now Improved! 2. The Ghosts Sprites Are Improved! 3. The Fruits Now Resemble The Arcade Version! 4. The Mazes Are Now Closer To The Arcade Version! 5. The Colors Aren’t So Dark Anymore! 6. Pac-Man’s Butt Doesn’t Wiggle Anymore! (That part was a little disturbing)

This Is Totally Worth Playing If You’re Looking For A Proper NES Port Of Pac-Man!

Now If Only Ms. Pac-Man On The NES Had A GFX Restoration Too…
