Bally Astrocade Muncher
Published 22 July 2018
Ever since the first release of Pac-Man by Nintendo in 1980,
there has been a plethora of licensed and unoffical clones of the game.
Even the Bally Astrocade has got in on the act by releasing their
interpretation called Muncher. We look into this particular version.
Pacman arcade game
was released in the United States in 1980 by Midway games, and went on
to be a social phenomenon.
No home arcade machine in the 1980s was comlete without a Pacman
clone in their collection, from the Atari 2600,
Commodore C64 to the IBM PC. There is a
published in 1998 that blissfully describes the various Pac-Man styles available.
There are claims posted on atariage.com
that Munchie was released under various names such as Pacmen and No-Die.
This was attributed to litigation actions at that time.
Needless to say, hardcore Astrocade collectors look to assemble all variations of this game to complete their round out their inventory.

Muncher Magazine Advertisment
We were lucky enough to find a partial advertisement that is claimed to be
a magazine advertisment for Astrocade Munch. Our problem is that this image
looks too good, even arcade quality. The Astrocade Muncher version looks
good but the machine lacks the resolution required to drawer the little munchers.
As the source of the advertisment is not known, we can not verify if this
an advertisment for Muncher or some other Pac-Man edition.
