The legendary Pac-Man is known for his eating of dots inside the maze. However, he had that yellow guy and adventures of a slightly more open type. Some of them are Pack Land, Pack-Man 2: The New Adventures, Pac-Man World, and Pac-In-Time. It was the latter that appeared on this day 27 years ago for Super Nintendo and Game Boy consoles.
Pac-in-Time was a 2D platformer in which Yellow traveled through time. The evil witch brought him back to his youth in 1975, before he became famous for his first Pac-Man game. The young Pac-Man thus had to cross five different worlds and return to his present in 1995. In these worlds, Pac-Man ate his points and outwitted his enemies. He could pick up four different aids: a rope for swinging and climbing, a hammer for hitting, shoes for swimming, and a fireball to destroy opponents.
Pac-in-Time wasn’t a brand new game but a repackaged Fury of the Furries platformer. That's how it used to be - French developer Kalisto first released an unknown platformer for the Amiga, Macintosh, and DOS and then reached an agreement with Namco to license Pac-Man. Then they just changed the characters, and the levels came up with a new story, and here are the other games.
