It’s Pac-Man!

June 6, 2007 at 4:32 pm (Uncategorized)

Hey, who remembers Pac-Man? I am going to have to convince my partner he loves this game so he can get it…
I’d thought things like this died out. I’m not really a big game fan but there are a few I could spend some time with. This is one of it – it’s a childhood game. Same like Mario Brothers and Mappy (yes Mrs M, I played it too) and Tetris.
Thankfully we won’t have to do the leg-on-the-bed-hold-my-back-so-I-don’t-fall pulling out of cartridges anymore but the games are still the same. Oe lekker!

    Do you know what was really hilarious about these games? The way you “moved” when the Islander guy faced the big monster- like you’re actually him. We used to call those pink little mannetjies “Bigoted”- I had discovered the word at an early age, not knowing what it meant, but thought it suited the pink little mannetjies.

    Ja, ja! Ha, ha, I remember. Do you remember the name of the game where the mannetjies had to break the ice and the penguins could kill you. You had to jump on the cloud and get carrots (carrots in space for ice people…ai). I can’t remember the name but I kicked ass in that game. And circus charlie.
