MAME Info:

0.37b14 [Zsolt Vasvari]

0.33b7 [Mike Balfour]


- Clone theglobp: [possible] Speedup per each new level seems excessive. Bugfinder (ID 01194)


- 0.104u2: Chaneman and David Widel added clone Super Glob (Pac-Man hardware) German bootleg - This set is from a modified Pengo board. Pengo and Pacman are functionally the same. The bad sound is probably correct as the sound data is part of the protection.

- 0.90u4: Dave Widel added clone Super Glob (Pac-Man hardware). Not sure if this is the official set, or an accidental merged set with 'The Glob'.

- 0.61: Added missing cpu1 rom ($1000) to clone (set 3).

- 26th June 2002: Zsolt Vasvari added a missing ROM to The Glob driver.

- 0.37b14: Zsolt Vasvari added Super Glob (Epos 1983) and clones The Glob, The Glob (earlier) and (set 3). Changed description to of 'The Glob' to clone 'The Glob (Pac-Man hardware)'. Renamed (theglob) to (theglobp). TODO: During the color test, Super Blob uses a busy loop to split the screen between the two palettes. This effect is not emulated. See $039c. The Glob has a different color test, not using the busy loop. Super Glob seems like a later revision of The Glob, the most obvious difference being an updated service mode.

- 7th April 2001: Zsolt Vasvari sent in an EPOS driver for The Glob, Super Glob and IGMO.

- 0.36b14: Added sound1 rom ($100 - timing).

- 0.35b12: Changed description to 'The Glob' and clone to 'Beastie Feastie'.

- 0.34b3: Juan Carlos Lorente added high score saving to Beastie Feastie.

- 0.34b2: Clay Cowgill and Mike Balfour added clone Beastie Feastie (Pac Man hardware).

- 0.34b1: Added sound prom.

- 0.33b7: Mike Balfour added 'The Glob (Pac Man hardware)' (Epos 1983).

- 27th June 1998: Eagle dumped The Glob (Pac-Man hardware).
