This page details one or more prototype versions of Ms. Pac-Man: Maze Madness (PlayStation).

A demo version of Ms. Pac-Man Maze Madness from an unknown source, possibly a demo disc. Its build date is unknown.

General

Camera

Demo Final

In the demo version, the camera seems to focus around the exact center of Ms. Pac-Man. In the final version, the camera was fixed up in some areas (notice the example above, where the camera was pushed to the left).

Other Notes

  • The text that appears above Ms. Pac-Man when all dots in an area are eaten is not yet present.

Graphical Differences

Demo Final

The Ms. Pac-Man on the title screen was remodeled, and the camera angle was fixed to be more straight-on.

Professor Pac-Man's holograms are a little smaller in the demo, and a bit off-model.

Sound Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload the music and sound effect files, alongside their final counterparts for comparison.
  • Cleopactra uses a completely different music track (known as "Cleopactra 2" on the official soundtrack). This theme was completely cut from the final PlayStation release, but it was eventually used in the Sega Dreamcast port of the game.
  • Numerous sound effects are either slightly different or are missing entirely.

Multiplayer

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: It is possible that Jr. is somehow unlockable in the final game, but I could not find any evidence of it. If anyone knows if he is actually in the final, please correct the information.

Jr. Pac-Man (top-left) appears in the demo's multiplayer mode, who seemingly was cut out in the final release. Additionally, Pooka (bottom-right) is available by default, rather than being unlockable like in the final game.
