i don't know why I keep coming back to this game, its just very addicting for some reason.

This was an interesting sequel in the Pac man world. It added keys and power ups and a little more strategy. I like the simple Pac-Man format better. One new feature was the ability to become giant and super powered. It's fun but not memorable.

Hard to improve on perfection (although Ms. Pac-Man did just that). Super Pac-Man falls flat for me. It retains the gameplay of its predecessors, but not their charm. I guess it has better graphics (shoes instead of dots?), but the original Pac-Man isn't about graphics anyway. His design couldn't be any simpler, but it is iconic, and in a way the presentation here seems like a step backward. They slapped a bow on him and called it Ms. Pac-Man and it was great, making him bigger wasn't super.

discovered this one a few years ago,and found myself playing it more than even the original pac mac which i loved the the late 80's

from the planet kripton. he can leep tall buildings in a single jump. its super pac-man.

Super Pac Man!...It's okay. Not the best Pac Man game, but it's fun. Just eat your way through plenty of levels, although it looses some of it's charm from the original, super pac man is worth a game. So try it and see if you enjoy it. It's really personal preference.

 Super Mario World - Super Nintendo
"This was the game that got me into Mario. This was the game that got me interested in retro video games and game collecting. It was one of the first games I downloaded from the Wii Virtual Console. It was the reason why I bought the Hyperkin SupaBoy so I could take my Super Nintendo cartridge on the go. I adore this game! It is perfect! Just Perfect!" - theretrorenegade

 Sega Genesis Model 1 Console - Sega Genesis
"Sega got it right the first time with the Genesis Model 1! What an incredibly cool-looking and well-built system that plays games beautifully, unlike the NES which was unreliable and looked like a toaster oven. While I still love the NES, the Genesis is another must-have for collectors with awesome games like Alien Storm, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Robocop vs. The Terminator! The Model 1 will not work as easily as the Model 2 with the 32X, but you still have a massive library of awesome games!" - theretrorenegade

 NES Console - NES
"I say everyone who enjoys retro games should own an original Nintendo! It's the first system that you should invest in if you want to begin collecting retro games. However, the NES has some reliability issues and can be a real pain to operate. Buy one refurbished with a new 72-pin connector installed if you can and clean all your games thoroughly before playing, and pray that the graphics don't start tearing or your game freezes altogether." - theretrorenegade

 Atari 2600 Jr. Console - Atari 2600
"I used to own one of these until I pawned it off to buy a 7800 for my game room instead. It was a good system to own, but it wasn't perfect. My only issue with the Jr. is that the game select and reset buttons have way too much resistance, and they don't even feel responsive when you push them. That might have been just my unit in particular, but still those buttons cannot compare to the stylish metal switches on the original Atari. Still, the Jr. is a great system for novice Atari collectors." - theretrorenegade

 Xenon 2 Megablast - Game Boy
"Quite inferior and slow compared to the Amiga version, but it's not a bad choice for the scrolling shooter library for the Game Boy." - fasttquick
