Newpuc1 (c) 1981 Unibox.


Main CPU : Zilog Z80 (@ 3.072 Mhz)
Sound Chips : Namco (@ 96 Khz)

Players : 2
Control : 4-way Joystick
Buttons : 1


This game is a French hack of "PuckMan". Newpuc1 uses the same maze format as "New Puck-X", including the extra sets of tunnels. All of the dots have been changed into the shape of hearts.

When the hero eats a power pill, rather than turning blue, the ghosts all change into the shape that appears in the second part of the third intermission of "PuckMan", when the ghost runs away with his cape dragging behind him (except that they are not dragging any capes behind them here). They are the same color as the hearts, and they flash red when the energizer is about to wear off.


The ghosts have their original Japanese name/nickname combinations.

The copyright message at the bottom of the title screen reads 'NEWPUC1'. The coin-up screen adds the year of release to the copyright message.

All messages in the coin-up screen, as well as the 'READY!' and 'GAME OVER' messages beneath the ghost pen, are in French.

At the top of the game screen, instead of 'HIGH SCORE', it says 'UNIBOX'


The scoring format for this hack is identical to that of "New Puck-X".
