Pac Man Coleco Tabletop Arcade
(Coleco - 1981)
When Coleco came out with a line of miniaturized versions of popular arcade hits, PacMan was the most obvious game to make as it was one of the most popular arcade hits ever. So they shrank down the action and stuffed it into one of these stylish tabletop arcade cabinets.
Even though the VFD screen is small, it is clear and bright bright and the sounds were crisp... the joystick is durable and responsive and a limited set of instructions were glued to the battery cover in case you lost the instruction manual. Quite a ironic thing as the battery cover is the most commonly lost or broken thing on these little arcade games.
It was a nice surprise to find that the game play isn't bad and the game is fairly faithful to the original arcade game. I know that you will have fun with this great electronic game for hours. But even back then, these dedicated games were more of a novelty than a replacement for real home video game systems like the Atari 2600, the Colecovision or the Vectrex.
Design wise, I give this slick little system an approving nod and for playability I'd say it was passable. So if you want a great vintage conversation piece that can be a little fun, this Coleco Pac Man will fill the need.
