Reviews for PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures (NA)
Interesting Pac-Man game.Kokuei | March 26, 2014 | See all Kokuei's reviews »
Finally released on PC; the game was released on consoles near the end of 2013. It was definitely a pleasant surprise and majority of 3D platformers get released on consoles and stay on consoles without a though on PC.
The basic mechanics you remember from the old Pac-Man are there. Power pills, fruit, ghosts and etc. Every level is pretty short but entertaining. There's a weird mechanic that isn't really explained but you can eat ghosts without using a power pill. The controls are great especially with a controller and the game runs pretty well for a console port. The game is very short.
The story is strange. I guess it's based or loosely based on the new Pac-Man TV show that I have never seen. The game has a similar issue as a very different game "Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine" which has limited amount of enemies. You'll constantly hear enemies screaming very few lines every time they're coming after you. They get very repetitive.
All in all; this is a decent 3D platformer in a platform that has very few of them.
