Were two versions of Pac-Mania released? One from Krisalis and another from Domark.

Essentially the same game, but in different packaging.

AFAIK domark published a Krisalis conversion or something. Krisalis later re-released it on a games compendium. I believe something similar occurred with Pipemania.

Wasn't the original release by Grandslam (along with Terramex, back when Krisalis were Teque)? There's a news piece in a late-80s issue of The Games Machine where Grandslam comment on how poor sales are.

I think there were 3 different releases - one for Arthur, a second updated for RISC OS 2, and finally the Krisalis re-release.

Thanks for the info chaps, I'll add three versions to be tracked down. I managed to get one off eBay, no idea which though until it arrives.

I've tracked down two copies:

Pac-mania (Learning Curve version) (1991) (Domark)
Pac-mania (1988) (Grandslam Entertainments)

Did Krisalis released it as an individual release, or only as part of a compilation? If it was part of a compilation, what was the name of it?

Ah, I think I was slightly confused - it is Pipemania that is on the Krisalis Collection (1992). I'll check further, but you probably have the two versions.

I've seen Pacmania both as an individually boxed title, and as part of the "Games Hyperpack" (which also included Terramex, Jinxter, Corruption, Word-up-word-down, and others - nine in total, I think).
