It could do with a power pill or two

Having arrived in arcades in the '80s, Namco's circular pill-muncher Pac-Man made his way over to Nintendo's NES home console in '84.
He's changed over the years. He's gone up against ghosts in platforming titles, starred in a multi-screened multiplayer game, and even turned into a car for Ridge Racer. But Namco's yellow spherical fellow is still primarily known for just two things: eating pills and chasing ghosts.
Now, thanks to this latest 3DS Virtual Console release, you can play Pac-Man in its original, pill-eating, ghost-chasing NES form all over again - except now you can do it on the move.
For Pac-Man enthusiasts who really must have this on every device they own only. As far as everyone else is concerned, there are far better things to play when you're out and about
