Wakka-wakka-wakka indeed! Almost a quarter of a century since it first hit the arcades and one of the most influential games in history is set for yet another release on yet another platform. This time it's the Game Boy Advance, courtesy of Nintendo's nostalgia-ridden Classic NES range.

For those of you who don't know (and, by George, you should be hanged for such ignorance), the game features the eponymous pizza-shaped yellow dude trundling around a series of mazes, collecting dots and avoiding a gang of rather dorky ghosts by the names of Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. Sparsely scattered around each level are a few 'Power Pellets' that, once consumed, turn the tables somewhat and give you the temporary power to eat/kill the ghosts. It's all about how long you can last (isn't it always?) and, as was generally the case back in the '80s, high score is the aim of the game.
