K.C. Munchkin is a game released for the Magnavox Odyssey 2. Its gameplay is very similar to that of Pac-Man. In fact, so similar that it generated a lawsuit from Atari, the company that held the home game rights to Pac-Man, which brought an end to this game being sold around the time Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 made its debut. The game later received a sequel, K.C.'s Krazy Chase.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

K.C. Munchkin is a blue furry antennaed critter who's hungry for Munchies that float around in a maze. However, there are three antennaed Munchers who are hungry for K.C., so K.C. must avoid running into them unless he eats the special blinking Munchies that give him power to eat the Munchers. Once K.C. eats all the Munchies, he enters a new maze where the Munchies (and the Munchers) get faster. The player can select from several different mazes, including ones that turn invisible when K.C. moves around, and can even edit mazes.
