Official description

Ms. Pac-Man's here, and she's totally liberated! She gets to run around in 36 unique, mind-boggling mazes - some small enough to fit on one screen; some so big you'll have to scroll around; and some are straight out of the arcades!
Even the fruits bounce around, making it that much tougher to get bonus points.
Choose Easy, Normal, Hard or Crazy speeds. Whether you're a beginner or expert, Ms. Pac-Man will have you running ragged. There's even a Pac Booster button to really let her shake those pesky ghosts.
Play Ms. Pac-Man by yourself or take turns with a friend. Better yet, two can play at the same time - one as the divine Ms. Pac-Man; the other, as the original Pac-Man!

Editor notes (2)

I know there is a Japanese Famicom version of Ms. Pac-Man. And it was released prior to this Namco version developed by Now Productions. AND it was developed directly by Namco (Namcot). I've seen it in those X-in-1 TV consoles (Famicom clone systems). Both legitimate versions that take advantage of some irregularities in Japanese copyright filing and illegal versions. There are also Brazilian and Australian releases that are probably based on the Tengen version but could also be yet another version of Ms. Pac-Man. And there's Hong Kong, Chinese, and Korean version that may be legitimate and based on one of these. However, there is a Famicom Disk System version that may be the basis for all of these

This is Tengen's implementation of Ms.Pac-Man released in the USA. Namco would later release another implementation that differers from this one and was developed by a different company. Tengen's version was not licensed by Nintendo and did not carry the 'Nintendo's seal of $10 has been added to the price of this cart'. However, Atari Games (which is also Tengen), did hold the rights to produce Pac-Man games for home systems in the USA at the time; This is a perfectly legitimate cart as far as Tengen's preexisting legal agreement with Namco. Tengen's version has many game variations. 1 Player, 2 Player Alternating, 2 Player Simultaneous Competitive, 2 Player Simultaneous Cooperative (Pac-Man & Ms. Pac-Man). Arcade, mini, big, or strange maze sets. Optional pac-boost (super fast Pac-Man). Large scrolling mazes. 4 levels of difficulty. Namco's version did not have these features, did have Nintendo's seal, cost more, and was release over 3 years later.
