Not sure there is a PAL version, I don't know how many of the Atarisoft games were sold in Europe. You do see the multi language box versions which are the European release (as opposed to just the English only) but I've not seen all 12 games in that format in my travels.

The CPU of a PAL VIC-20 runs at 17.7344MHz divided by 16. That's 1.1084 MHz.
On the other hand, the CPU of a NTSC VIC-20 runs at 14.31818MHz divided by 14. That's 1.02 MHz.
This makes a PAL VIC-20 8.6% faster than it's NTSC counterpart.
However, I do remember, back around 2007, I installed a small counter circuit which slows down a VIC to 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 or 1/16 its normal speed.
Let's just say this made it considerably easier to visit all levels of Shamus.
