Which was the first game to use slow-mo - do you know? I can't seem to find a definitive answer. Some people claim it's Pac-Man, because the pills slow ghosts down, but does it really count if Pac-Man doesn't slow down too? I'm not sure. Other people, meanwhile, reckon it's Atari 2600 game Threshold, but I don't know it well enough to say.
