It is.
As any other game designed for MSX1, unless it's programmed with the butt Smile And that was NAMCOT, so won't have any problem.
Won't use any MSX2 enhancement tho, if it's that what you are asking.

Some games by Namcot do not work on MSXs with RAM into extended slot. This is the case for Galaxian but I do not think that's the case for Pac-man.

So that's why Galaxian doesn't work on any of my MSX2's!
I have that pac-man game, I've had no problem with it on my MSX2's... in fact, Galaxian is the only game I've had problem with so far.

One other Namco game that doesn't work on MSX2s is King & Balloon. Discovered that the hard way.

Rally-X also has some weird graphics corruption after you get a Game Over, but otherwise works fine.
