Pacman for the ZX Next

Postby Alcoholics Anonymous » Tue Jan 14, 2020 11:59 pm

Another done for fun by Rusty Pixels. It's similar to Simon Owen's pacman emulator for the spectrum and sam some years ago in that it runs the original Pacman roms so it is an arcade perfect version. However because of the Namco copyright, the pacman roms will not be made available with the game.



The pacman screen is too tall for the next (288 pixels iirc) so they chose to run the game in one of two modes. One mode is sideways so that the full pacman screen can fit -- all you need to do is turn your monitor sideways. The second, shown in the video, scrolls the playfield as pacman runs around.

Another video with pacman operating in full size mode on a monitor turned sideways.

It looks very smooth and a nice touch with the full size mode :)
