Playlist has posted a new review of Ms. Pac-Man for iPod, one of several games available for Apple's portable multimedia device. Ms. Pac Man recreates the pellet gobbling action of the original arcade title, but awkward controls and a tiny visual footprint resulted in a score of 2.5 out of 5 from Playlist.
the iPod screen is a lot smaller than the CRTs that originally showed off this game, and while theyíre clear and the graphics are crisp, itís easy to suffer some eye strain while youíre playing. Whatís more, because youíre sacrificing iPod screen real estate for embellishments like cabinet art and a heads up display, the maze is even smaller than it really has to be...For the full review head over to the site below.
Playlist: Ms. Pac Man Review
Just like with Pac-Man before it, you maneuver Ms. Pac-Man around the maze by simply touching the iPodís click wheel in the direction you want to go. A miniature joystick on the screen will show you what direction youíve pressedóup, down, left and right. I found the controls to be a little problematic. I donít know whether itís bad hand/eye coordination on my end or sloppy input, but Iíd often move my thumb in a certain direction and not see Ms. Pac-Man follow, even though she had a clear path in front of her. This got particularly maddening at higher levels, where the action is a lot faster and those quick decisions can mean escape or certain doom at the hands of the ever hungry ghost quartet.
