This port of the 1981 arcade classic features 36 different mazes, including the original four, and allows two players to play simultaneously.


First port of Ms. Pac-Man for the NES, released in 1990 (exact date unknown) in North America.

This port allows two players to play either alternately or simultaneously. If they choose to play simultaneously, they can choose to play either competitively or cooperatively, and Player 2 plays as the original Pac-Man.

The 36 mazes are divided into four sets : the original four mazes from the arcade version, as well as smaller mazes, bigger mazes, and "strange" mazes.

A "Pac-Booster" allows the players to move faster.

The game ends at Level 32, after which a cutscene not featured in the original arcade game plays, in which the Pac couple wave good-bye to the player(s), and then disappear into the distance.
