Pac-Man, like you’ve never seen him before. At first glance Pac-Man 256 looks like the original, but soon you’ll realize that it’s full of features!
The endless gameplay in Pac-Man 256 keeps you on your toes as you guide your little yellow friend around an ever changing maze.
The pac-man franchise has been around since the 1980s, and this is a revitalizing of the iconic Namco title in a modern, free-to-play mobile game. The arcade game was developed as a celebration of the 35 year anniversary of our favorite ghost munching ball of “waka waka." Bandai Namco Entertainmen teamed up with the developers of Crossy Road to bring you Pac-Man 256.
Some things never change, and that’s clear in this mobile game. Pac-Man is still the iconic yellow ball that has a taste for ghosts. If you are a fan of the original title, you will feel right at home with this mobile version.You have to guide the round protagonist through the maze exactly like in the first arcade game, munching those little yellow dots on the way. This time around, however, the maze is never ending! You have to plan your route, because if you’re too slow, you’ll get caught by “the glitch.” Aside from that, the biggest change is that you don't have to play the game in an arcade center, but can take it with you wherever you go. Some things do change after all!
One of the new game mechanics is the Glitch. This is a constantly moving wall that will put a stop to the ghostly fun. You have to keep moving through the maze to avoid getting caught! Use all of your skills to find the fastest way to keep moving while gathering as many points as possible.
Every dot that Pac-Man gobbles up contributes to the combo. Whenever you hit a milestone, starting at 16, you get a power boost. If you reach 256, you’ll get a super special surprise. There are over 15 new power-ups, including lasers, tornados, a giant Pac-Man, and many more.
This puzzle game naturally includes all the members of the ghost gang, so you’ll be facing familiar enemies as you traverse the endless maze and try to beat your high score.
Pac-Man 256 is available for free on iOS and Android devices!
