I feel a little weird criticizing Pac Land for what other games did better given how this is such important landmark in platformers, but I can't deny that the game is hard to play now. The controls don't feel right, with Pac Man taking huge steps with even the slightest tap of a direction, and it feels awkward to move between platforms of different heights. Most of the levels have unfair instant kill death traps that you really have to memorize to avoid, And it doesn't feel like there's much new to see after the first couple of worlds. I wouldn't quite call it a bad game, but if it wasn't such a big piece of gaming history, I know I would never recommend it to anyone now.

To be honest, I´ve never been too much into Pacman. Since it came with my Turbo Express, I gave it a try thru 2 levels, but couldn´t get the hang of it. I find the graphics boring and plain simple and the gameplay also isn´t the most entertaining.
