Baby Pac-Man - Bally Midway's Arcade game gets an Atari 7800 port update

Even more retro gaming news to get through today and the first one is a well known Arcade game called ' Baby Pac-Man ', which is still at a work in progress stage and is coming to the Atari 7800 by the developer Bob Decrescenzo at some point next year. This game was first released by Bally Midway way back in 1982 and is based on a baby 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 also contains a pinball mode in which the player must hit a target with a metal ball for extra bonuses, when the player fails to keep the ball in play it's back to the Baby Pac-Man mode!

We've mentioned this game previously and it looks as if it has come along in leaps and bounds compared the older version, as not only are the pinball tables and Pac maze levels now combined, but energizers and pinball lights should all work, drop down targets should now function as expected, and Pacscalator is implemented. As for future updates the developer is looking to re-write the collision detection for the maze portion, spinners, bonus baby after 3rd maze, pinball sounds and even tilting!

And that's just a small update to this eagerly awaited Arcade port, which is looking like it will be exclusive to the Atari 7800!
