Ms. Pac-Man 32 Maze Crush!

Hack of Ms. Pac-Man (Namco)

Description:

Ms. Pac-Man 32 Maze Crush! is an extensive hack of Namco’s version of Ms. Pac-Man for the NES. This features 32 unique mazes from a variety of sources:

  • The original 8 mazes in the game
  • 8 unused mazes found within the game
  • 8 mazes from other games that used similar maze dimensions (Pac-Man for NES, Jr. Pac in Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures for Genesis, Ms. Pac-Man for Game Boy Color, Pac-Man VS…)
  • 8 completely new mazes from scratch!

This was achieved through hand-editing the ROM and hand-compressing maze data, as the only available visual editor for this game (Blinky) does not completely understand how to work with the existing data in the game… this is why ROMs corrupt if you try to make too many custom mazes. However, this hack is proof that it IS possible to have one unique maze per level slot!

The graphics have also been improved, with a new font and tileset, along with an attempt to make the visuals more closely match the arcade original.

Will you crush all 32 mazes, or will the mazes crush you?
