Pac-Mania arcade style tiles/sprites/colors

Hack of Pac-Mania

Description:

Pac-Mania was ported to many systems. Early ports like the one to the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive where visually quite different from the original version. This hack aims to change that:

  • arcade sprites have been converted to fit into the systems colorspace
  • backgrounds have been redrawn to looks closer to the arcade version
  • colors have been improved, giving the game a brighter, more saturated and friendlier look

Please note: the PAl release is the same NTSC-U ROM file with just different labeling. The IPS patch works thus works with both region versions.

Pacmania on Genesis now looks just like the original arcade version!

Reviewed By: thepatrickinator on 05 Dec 2016

Genesis arcade games originally looked arcade-like, but their colors looks a bit brighter or darker than their arcade counterparts. This is when you came in and used the arcade original as a reference and fixed it to make Genesis Arcade games which is now possible thanks to HivePAL, GIMP, and TileLayer. Great job with Pac-Mania and Well done making the Genesis version look just like the arcade version!
