Haunted Hedges, ZX Spectrum

Haunted Hedges is Derek Brewster‘s early ZX Spectrum ‘adaptation’ of Pac-Man, released by Micromega in 1983.

Brewster uses an isometric viewpoint of a maze of hedges to differentiate his game from all the other clones. He uses regular Pac-Man style ghosts, though.

Movement and animation are a little sluggish, but the controls work well enough. Haunted Hedges is a reasonable attempt at Pac-Man on the Spectrum, but isn’t smooth enough or precise enough to be taken seriously. I don’t think the maze changes either. Very basic stuff, but still playable.
