you'll need at least EGA to play it, but if you turn the speed up it's TOO FAST on an 8088 @ 4.77! it's called CD-Man i've been playing it for an hour now. this link is legal, since it's shareware... i doubt the company is still around because it was made in 1989, but here you go.

lol! I used to play that all the time. I remember the sharks lol. Didn't know it ran on that old of a system though, I think I ran it on our 386 but good graphics at the time.

I'm still upset at my inability to program a working pac-man clone in qbasic in highschool. lol pissed me off so much trying to use a circle, two lines (mouth) and a paint command to fill him and animate it. I've vented several times here about it I think but he'd always do something stupid and trip on his jaw or eat himself, etc. It was moving the circle that threw everything off. Staying put his mouth would open and close fine. I think I finally decided the original version used sprites lol

My favorite pac-man clone for 8088 is Pacmania. Works great, good sound, works with CGA.

I've got PC-Man here and I love it! It has sounds, color, and works well on my 8086 AT&T PC 6300. Fun stuff, nice and simple. For my TRS-80 III, I use...ahh...I forgot the name of it!

I love that game, I think it was the best ever, but now I don't have a machine to run it, I wish they would make it to run on new computers, the graphics were awesome.
