Just tried it and this is _seriously_ cool - great work! I think the 
scrolling works very well and takes nothing away from the gameplay!

For some weird reason I get red dots/pills under MESS (RGB) but haven't 
tried it on a real machine yet.

I _think_ there's a few off-by-one bugs on some of the sprite placements 
due to the oddities of the original hardware - but perhaps it's actually 
accurate but more obvious due to the game running slower?!?

It's a testament to the Coco that it has, complete or WIP, perfect 
arcade ports of Space Invaders, Donkey Kong & now Pacman, not to mention 
a few other micro-based ports! I've also started work on another arcade 
port, but not ready to reveal yet what that is!

Coco rulez! :)
