Oh, another PAC-MAN game? How original.

But since it is a match-3, I might take a closer look at it for a buck.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

What is the difference between this game and PAC-Chain and also PAC-Match Party?

Asides from being cheaper and universal, I couldn't tell what is different.

Cheers,

Bruno

Pac n Jump was an instabuy, but this... is probably an instabuy for me too O_O

But seriously I have craploads of match 3s.. Why am I instabuying this?

you know what would be really nice? if they'd fix the match 3 pacman game they have out already that broke when ios4 came out.. but I guess once they have your money they stop development and move on to the next game.. bad form namco, bad form.

I'll TOFTT. I'm kind of a sucker for Bejeweled type games if they're either polished or themed with some character I recognize.

So far the game seems pretty decent, but doesn't really bring anything wildly new to the genre (then again, I can't think of any that do). The unique part of this game is the pac man that's on the board. If you can bring him next to an item, you can eat it and trigger different effects. Power pellets are especially good for racking up points. The graphics for some of Namco's newer Pac-Man spinoffs (including this one) are a lot more polished than some of their other crappy ports. The controls could use a little adjustment, though. They don't seem to be as accurate as the ones in Bejeweled, but they're not horrendous. The swiping in pellet mode is pretty bad though. For the price, it's decent purchase if you're a fan of Bejeweled and/or Pac-Man (I'm pretty happy with it), but if you're the type who wants top-end games for $1, then I'd suggest passing on this one.

How does this compare to PAC-match party and PAC-chain? I don't have any of the three, am a huge match-3 an PAC-man fan, and want to pick up the best of the bunch? From screenshots of them all it is very difficult to differentiate between variances of gameplay. Thanks!

Now playing: Working my way through the best retro games recently re-relased including Sonic, Raiden Legacy, Blazing Star and more. Keep them coming! And revisiting all Orange Pixel titles...
