Coleco Pac Man (1981, VFD, 4 C Batteries, Model# 2390)
CPU: Hitachi HD38820-A28 or HD38820-A29
One of the cool (and I believe the most common), arcade game shaped handhelds (or tabletops, they aren't easy to hold...), based on Bally/Midway's Pac Man arcade game. These are much-desired collectibles, and aren't always easy to find in really good condition. They each (Frogger, Donkey Kong, Galaxian, Pac Man, Ms Pac Man) have a sticker on the top of the game, front, left side and right side, as well as a plastic sticker on the control panel. One or more of these is frequently damaged or missing. There is also an instruction sticker on the bottom of each of them. They should also have an egg-shaped knob on the end of each joystick (this was only held on with a screw, and was also subject to disappearing.) An original price: $59.97 at Toys R Us.
Do I have this? Yes, US and Canadian versions with boxes. (These are mine pictured.)
This is Canadian version, the extra overlay on the table is
the French overlay, sent with the game as a seperate sticker.
Pac Man can be seen in Warner Bros' 1983 movie National Lampoon's
