Munch Man is a Pac-Man clone that does some things right and others wrong. The basic gameplay is the same, gobble the dots and avoid the ghosts; grab a power pellet and turn the tables on them. The main playing area is zoomed in so you can't see the entire board. There is also a mini map in the bottom corner, but it's difficult to look at it and also pay attention to the main area. There are different level layouts (eight in total) and color schemes as well. However the gameplay itself feels a little ... jerky? Hard to describe. There are a bunch of options though, including having player 2 play as one of the ghosts?! Which doesn't work too well since player 2 can't see where they are if they're off the screen. Also the game requires a batch file to run (GO.BAT) which seems to not be set up properly and spits out errors even though the game seems to run properly. I'm also not sure exactly how fast this is supposed to run, so the cycles may be set incorrectly for DOSBox. In any case, this is the full version, released for free by the game's authors.
