Pac-Man Bootleg (Make Trax Pinout)

Seems close, resets, out of sync

Aftermarket Pac-Man arcade game circuit boardset from 1980 that appears to be running on a Make Trax board (or clone board). We tested this board with a Make Trax adapter and it resets and is out of sync.  Make Trax typically uses positive sync, but we couldn't get it to lock sync by changing the wiring. Not sure if we missed something or there is a sync issue.

The board is fairly clean, sold as-is, likely needing some repair. See photos for more details on its condition.

Year 1980
Genre Labyrinth/Maze
Related Game Title Pac-Man
Quick Game Facts

Not much description needed here, Pac-Man was and still is among the most popular games ever. Pac-Man’s goal is simple: devour all of the pellets in each maze while avoiding the enemy ghosts: Pinky, Blinky, Inky and Clyde. Pac-Man went on to spawn nine sequels include Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Jr. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man (a video/pinball hybrid), among others. New games are still being released today featuring the game’s characters for home consoles.

Among its other accomplishments, the game had its own animated TV show, its own song, “Pac-Man Fever” and a ton of memorabilia.
