Manufacturer: Atarisoft
 
The Atarisoft port of Ms. Pac-Man plays a tad sluggishly as the programmers seemed to emphasize animation ("gobbled" ghosts turn into numbers, the bonus fruit bounces around the maze, etc.) at the expense of CPU cycles. The animation, along with the sound (incidentally, the classic Pac-Man theme plays at the beginning) is impressive - especially when the limitations of the hardware are considered.

Atarisoft was a division of Atari that produced software for a variety of non-atari hardware.
