Cool Handheld Pacman Game

Posted by Big Boo on June 8th, 2009

arcade classicOne of my favourite arcade games as a kid was Pacman, and when Santa brought me the handheld Grandstand Munchman game I was over the moon.  It may have been an incredibly simple version of Pacman but I played it for hours on end, attempting to beat my highscore.

Anyway, the good people at Hawkin’s Bazaar have just let me know about their new Arcade Classic handheld game, which though badly named in my opinion (Arcade Classic could mean anything – Space Invaders, Asteroids, Frogger, Donkey Kong, etc.) looks as though it’s incredibly close in style to my old Munchman game.

You’re still chased by ghosts but for some reason you play as a smiley face in a cowboy hat, and instead of collecting cherries you collect pieces of jewellery.  It looks like it has a very clear display, and has a little joystick instead of the four directional buttons that Munchman had, so would appear to be a bargain at £14.99.  Now, Father’s Day is just around the corner, and this year will be the first time I get to celebrate it, so maybe I should drop some hints…
