Lock 'N' Chase is another Pac-Man-type game that allows players to manipulate the maze area (see also Lady Bug and Mouse Trap), this time through the use of closeable doorways.

Pay no attention to the name of the red cop.

Version Differences

There are a few (mostly minor) differences between Data East's DECO Cassette game and Taito's more traditional arcade cabinet.

  • The cassette version has a default high score of $500. The cabinet version has no default high score.
  • The cabinet versions adds three test mode dip switch options that weren't present on the cassette.
  • There's an added dip switch option in the cabinet port that doubles the walking speed of both Lupin and the cops.
Cassette Cabinet


The audio engine was downgraded slightly in Taito's release. This is most noticeable with the game's music.
