Rom Player: Virtual Colecovision
Reviewer: Randy Johnson
Synopsis: This game was obviously inspired by Pac-man. The arcade version was made by Exidy. This version was made by Coleco. Instead of pac-man, you control a mouse. Instead of dots, you eat pieces of cheese. Instead of four power pellets, there are four dog bones. Instead of dodging and eating ghosts, you dodge and eat cats.
Pressing 5 on your Colecovision controller makes you eat a dog bone and temporarily changes you into a dog and lets you eat the cats. I'm not certain how many dog bones you can carry at a time but I'd say it's at least a hundred.
You open and close doors in this maze game. It even has prizes to eat like Pac-man.
There is also a hawk on this game and you'd better watch out. If you collide with the hawk as a dog or mouse, you die. But don't worry. If you choose the easiest skill level on Colecovision's Mouse trap, there is no hawk.
This is one of the easiest games for the Colecovision. I've played it for two hours straight. I could've played it for hours longer, but I quit because I got bored.
I'm almost positive that Pac-man was never made for the Colecovision, but Colecovision and Pac-man fans shouldn't despair. Buy Mousetrap. You can find Mousetrap and other Colecovision games at EColeco or Ebay.
