Don't know, but I love Ms. Pac-Man. I'm not sure I need both games, though.

FYI, Ms. Pac-Man is also on sale for the same price.

Ha, glad to see I'm not the only one. I've always preferred Ms Pac Man over the original Pac Man

I'm begining to think I bought the wrong one. I bought Pac-Man ages ago when it was full price, and haven't played it in ages. You're not the only one who I've heard prefers Ms over the original. Can you tell me what makes it better?

Hmm dunno what it is really... I've played both versions on various platforms and I just prefer Ms Pac Man. I never tried the original Pac Man on the iPhone though

I guess it's just a preference. I know Ms Pac Man is a newer game than the original Pac Man though, so maybe it's just a better game

I would have to play Pac Man again to be able to tell you exactly why I think it's better

The central differences (at least in the originals, besides the lipstick & bow) is that Ms. Pac-Man is faster and has a second maze design. Faster is more fun in my book.

Thanks. If those are the only differences then I'll pass. It's nice to know now though.

I guess I really just like the first maze set up better in Ms Pac Man

Also, aren't there more than 2 maze designs in Ms Pac Man... I've played different versions that have like 5 or 6 different mazes

Pacman for 8$ is daylight robbery, especially seeing as it is the standard version and I can't believe how they could even comprehend charging that amount for it.
