Pac-Man once in a generation game

The perfect balance of retro and classic of early game days. The high pixelated graphics gives a perfect feeling of what classic arcade games are about. Getting the highest score possible was always a challenge but one I always got. Having more features that would make the game challenging such as predictability of the ghosts and changing of the elements of the map.

The best game in a generation

An old classic that few remember going to the arcade to play and compete to beat each other's high score. The simplicity of the game was always getting down the patterns of the game. Having an element of greater difficulty would give it a greater challenge.
