Carl Williams writes, "Okay, messing with the classics can be a tough thing to do right. Just look at what happened in the late 90’s with Battlezone by Activision. What a mess that was. There have been a few other attempts over the years to update classics such as Asteroids, Battlezone, Missile Command and more but those were mostly simply graphical upgrades and not much else. Pac-Man 256 is an upgrade of a classic title that doesn’t stray from the original formula too much, rather it is expanded and that simply works."
