The title image looks like it's monochrome and also the level select screen. These two screens could have been much better since they have nothing to do with the ingame performance.
The resolution on the game field is 176x200 compared to the arcade version which had 224x288, so not even the aspect ratio is correct. A smaller screen on an ST game could be ok but since other games with bigger screens run at 25fps in 16 colors there is no real reason why this couldn't have done that to.
I really don't agree, then i'm honest. I think that the ST version is much nicer done if we forget all the technical talk. I just love the big status panel containing Namco, Pac Man and all the Ghosts when playing the game. Remove it and you remove very much of the great atmosphere in Pac Mania. It makes the game much nicer to play. The feel of the game is better in the ST version too me think.
Sometimes it's more the complete feeling and the atmosphere of a game then about technical bits, and ST version of Pac Mania got me hooked from the first time i played it. I still love ST Pac Mania.
Here's the Falcon version of Pac Mania. Perhaps is moves smooth and is technical great, but, where's the atmosphere?
Then look at this. Human warmth, great atmosphere, and a great conversion me think.
