Always Wanted to Be a Ghost Instead of PAC-MAN?

Pac-Man today returns to the mobile in an multi-player format thanks to Namco Bandai Networks Europe, a leading publisher of mobile games. Optimised for a new generation of handsets to provide a superb gameplay experience, mobile users will, for the first time ever, be able to wirelessly challenge up to three of their friends in a re-mastered version of the arcade classic. Players will also be able to compare their abilities with other fans across Europe thanks to an online  Pac-Man  hi-score ranking system.

Using Bluetooth-enabled handsets to simultaneously connect up to four players, friends will be able to challenge each other directly as they take turns to play the role of  Pac-Man  himself or one of the ghosts chasing him. When playing as  Pac-Man, mobile users will have to tackle a -˜fog of war’, limiting their vision of the entire maze as they manoeuvre around a choice of four mazes and avoid their friends as the roaming enemy ghosts.

Mobile gamers who prefer to go it alone will also be able to enjoy this faithful reproduction of the original  Pac-Man  game, which continues to capture the public imagination almost thirty years following its arcade debut in 1980. As an important consideration for those gaming on the move PAC-MAN for mobile also features pause and resume functions, allowing gamers to exit  Pac-Man  mid-game and resume play from the same point hours or days later making the experience much more flexible while pursuing the ultimate score. One of the most popular titles for mobile,  Pac-Man  has maintained its consistent position within the top ten highest selling mobile games for the past five years selling millions of copies around the world.

The new game is available immediately across all major UK operators.
