Apparently somebody at SNK spent a lot of time playing Pac-Man, because Marvin's Maze is about as close as you can get without being sued. Instead of being controlling a pizza-shaped hero, you are a weird alien dude who looks a lot like Q*bert. You roam around a maze picking up red dots and power pellets, all while avoiding robot-like enemies who are after the poor alien. What sets this game apart from other maze games is the use of two-story levels. Instead of just one maze to worry about, players are forced to contend with an upper and lower section. The game also adds a projectile weapon (which can kill multiple robots in one shot), one-way bridges and tubes that connect the two floors.

Unfortunately the game suffers from a lot of the same problems that plagued the original Pac-Man. For starters, the gameplay can be a little sluggish. You don't have to hold a direction to move Marvin, but changing directions isn't always as smooth as I would have liked. It's also extremely slow. I love that there are so many different mazes to conquer, but it would have been nice if things sped up as you went along. Still, don't let these minor gripes keep you from enjoying this addictive maze game. You're definitely getting your money's worth with this PSP Mini, even if you already own Pac-Man Championship Edition.
