Default PAC-MAN for iPad Sale (U$0.99)

Strange that there was no previous thread for this game favourite (I used Search, and other Pac-Man apps showed up, but not this specific one).

Just a heads up, Namco have put this at U$0.99 from its regular U$4.99 price!

Thanks! I've been eyeing this one in the App Store for the past fortnight since I got my iPad but found the AUD$6 price a bit too steep. $1.20 is much better!

I was in the same boat! I knew this would go down, and 99 cents is absolutely the right "money".

I daresay we'll see lots of these 99 centers this weekend. Woohoo! COME ON GAMELOFT.

But for an iPad title that dpad looks ugly Anyone have impressions? I'm not particularly a Pac Man fan but for 99 cents I might get it since its a classic.

three control modes:

swipe: swipe in the direction you want to hold the joystick. you've got to move before you reach the corner, but it's how you play pacman if you're pro works great, i've just hit 20,000 points.

joystick: move the joystick in the direction you want to move. for a 4 direction arcade game i'm not a big fan.

accelerometer: tilt the ipad in the direction you want to move. again, i'm not a fan for a 4 direction arcade game.

Cheers

I've been lurking for the past two weeks and you guys seem to be on the ball when it comes to price drops and the best games on the iPad.

[EDIT] I take it almost all back! check a few posts down

As a big Pac-Fan (yes I own a arcade game of Pac-Man) I have to say...

I HATE THIS VERSION!

The frame rate is pretty bad... The controls aren't so hot... You can't change any options (Why does it start you with five guys?)... The whole thing just feels sluggish!

I always try to look for a positive so.... The audio is good

Save your four quarters
