Jr. Pac-Man - Bally Midway's Arcade game is coming to the Intellivision

Lots of gaming news to get through today and the first one is a well known classic Arcade game called ' Jr.Pac-Man ', which is coming to the Intellivision this year by the publishers Intellivision Revolution. This game was first released by Bally Midway way back in 1983 and is based on a child like version of Pac-Man that also has to eat dots in a maze style gaming screen while also avoiding the ghosts. The similarities end there however, as the game features side-scrolling mazes, a lack of exits, and moving prizes that not only destroy energisers but also create large dots that slow the players' movement.

According to multiple sources Jr. Pac-Man also appeared on the Atari 2600, Commodore 64 and DOS and was based on the original Pac-Man game but was created without the permission of Namco. Just like Ms. Pac-Man, Baby Pac-Man, and Pac-Man Plus. These unauthorized sequels ultimately led to the termination of the licensing agreement between Namco and Bally Midway.

In regards to this port for the Intellivision it includes all 7 arcade levels, plus bonus levels, 2 player mode, and intermissions!
