Did I ever post this? (Pac-Man Plus 320)


Recommended Posts

One of the things I was working on a while back when I was doing the Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man 320 mode games, was Pac-Man Plus 320.  I don't think I ever posted it, so here it is. 


Some things to note:

- Inky is teal/green because he shares the maze color

- When the monsters turn 'invisible' you can still 'see' them when they are over dots, because transparency is turned off.

- The difficulty switch still changes the maze (Pac-Man / Puck-Man)


If I did already post this, I apologize.

320 modes are the Atari's high resolution modes, which are 320 pixels across.  There are 4:


320A, which are 8 palettes, each palette has one color plus BG/Transparency

320B, 2 palettes, each one 3 colors plus BG/Transparency

320C, which allows 4 colors plus BG, every two pixels has to be from the same palette

320D, 4 palettes ... even columns get a color plus BG/Transparency, odd ones get two other colors.


I actually did an interlace experiment in an attempt to get 320B mode using the lower DMA cost 320D.  The jury is still out on how well it works.
