Refresh with Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5.

Ah, that worked! I can see them now.

Despite today's date, no joke, all of Britannia and the Gargoyle World of Ultima VI: The False Prophet is now completely mapped!  The PC version is a personal favourite of mine, it's nice to now have every pixel here.  Confession: I don't think I've ever finished this legitimately, I'm always tempted to say "spam" x3 and "humbug" to Iolo...  We have FlyingArmor to thank for all these area maps, which must have been a lot of work, especially listing all those items!  Zerker contributed the world map of Britannia way back in 2012 which is awesome too.  Thanks again!

George s, who loves arcade games, mapped my recent request of the Namco arcade classic The Tower Of Druaga.  Thanks so much!

Coincidentally, Pac-Man 99 was just announced the other day and released yesterday for the Switch.  At 2:01 in the trailer, you can see there is even a The Tower Of Druaga theme for it!

Speaking of Pac-Man, George s has once again indulged another arcade request, this time of Pac-Land.  Thanks so much!


Did you know that the music is from the Hanna-Barbera Pac-Man cartoon, as are the character designs, and that this game - a platformer - was actually released before Super Mario Bros.?

George s is keeping the Pac-Train going by fulfilling my requests for Baby Pac-Man, Jr PacMan, Ms Pac-Man, and Super Pac-Man.  Okay, I didn't request Baby Pac-Man specifically, but sure, I'm not going to say no to more of the Pac-Family!  Though there is a physical pinball element to that one, so it is certainly a unique game.

Thanks yet again, George s!

George s fulfills some more classic arcade requests, including Frogger, Q*bert, and the original Pac-Man, which we didn't have until now, believe it or not!  Yes, the original arcade version!  Isn't it, like, one of the most iconic video games ever?  Also, though I didn't specifically request it, he also mapped Pac & Pal for good measure, because why not get some more "Pac" games packed away?  Thanks as always, George s!

(I'll be publishing a review of "Coin-Op: The Arcade Guide" on my YouTube channel, most likely later today.  One of my concerns is the lack of coverage of classic games such as Pac-Man, Frogger, and Q*bert.  Then I realized how bad it looks saying that but not having maps of those games here on VGMaps.com...)

While most Pac-Man stages look identically to the mapped stage 1, it also has the infamous final level 256 which looks half different. If it needs an extra map though is debatable because it is unbeatable, even with a map. :)

I would certainly accept a map of that.  Perhaps there could be a raw one and one that highlights the areas that Pac-Man can actually traverse.

Is the proper name "Maze 256" or "Level 256" or "Round 256" or "Stage 256"?  I always like to use the in-game terminology, but if there isn't any, I would prefer to use something more accurate, like "Maze" in this particular case.  I would also use "Level" if that is indeed the accepted term for something like this that I imagine must be talked about a lot, I just usually avoid "Level" unless it is explicitly said somewhere within the game, as I feel the word is overused.
