Pac-Man GB - Redux

Hack of Pac-Man

Description:

Pac-Man GB - Redux is a graphics hack of Pac-Man’s port on Game Boy, providing a complete facelift of the entire game. The hack consists of two patches under the Pac-Man GB - Redux banner both with unique visual styles, dubbed ‘Anniv. Redux’ and ‘Classic Redux.’

Anniv. Redux:

  • Anniv. Redux features a brand new aesthetic and all-original graphics, taking full advantage of the Game Boy’s limited palette and the original game’s limitations. Every detail has been touched-up and redrawn, giving the game a fresh look while staying true to how Pac-Man is depicted in his series’ official releases.

Classic Redux:

  • New to the 1.5 release is the Classic Redux patch. Based off how the original 1990 Game Boy release looked, this alternate version of the hack aims to do a more faithful job translating the original arcade game’s colorful graphics to four monochrome shades.

Makes a Poor Port a Great One!

Reviewed By: Ziko on 17 Sep 2018

Let’s get this out of the way: This port of Pac-Man isn’t ideal for longtime players or new players or so I thought before playing this hack. The graphics are top-notch despite the limitations of the Game Boy. A lot of the gripes were dealt with such as the draw distance, sprite size, etc. Thank goodness because this looks even better if you use the GBC bios alongside an emulator and the game comes even more to life with the color settings. In my opinion, it makes this port even more enticing in comparison to what it was before.
