I read an article a few months back saying that the port was lousy not souly because of time constraints but hardware constraints. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the 2600 isn't even powerful enough to run pacman!!! Seriously... the animation issues were due to a lousy draw rate and limited palette, and the crappy ai and sound effects were due to limited memory space.

It's actually quite amazing that it turned out that good.

I've also been experiencing pacman nostalgia btw. I used to be rather (in)famous over at byoac, but I haven't done anything related to that in quite a while. I think it's time to build the ultimate pacman cab from scratch!
