Well two differences really. This is not something I've really noted mentioned before :unsure:

 

Left is Bug Byte version , right is Software Projects version. Bear in mind the re-releases by VentaMatic and M.A.D were almost exclusively based on the Software Projects version as that was the later edition as such and as such will be identical to that version.

I've got to admit though it was the not the "most obvious difference" that I spotted first...

I think Norman Sword drew my attention to this a while back, when he did his project that combines both versions into one file.

It is a notable absence from John Elliott's list of differences between the two versions:

Yes they are not listed that I see.

 

Do you see both 'differences' ? :)

Yes, the 'ghost' Fire cells and the 'bunch of grapes' items - both fitting in with the Pac-Man theme.

:) It was actually the fire cell that first drew my attention to it, 'Pac-Man' vs ' Plant' cell, then I saw the item graphics.

Wondering if there are any other miner (pun intentional) differences that were not previously noted :unsure: but I do not see anything else that has not been mentioned already. :)

After more study, I'm not able to find any other differences, at least nothing that has not already been covered... :)
