I didn't care much for old arcade pac-man but this is fun! The graphics are really good, too. I want to build an arcade cabinet and get a pro joystick for this little game.

Wish it was 2-player somehow but it's definitely fun to compete with scores.

I'd got this game for years and out of all the games I have on my Steam library, this is the only game that I kept going back to because the controls are intuitive, the music is catchy and I'm enjoying all the DLCs and stages I can finish. It's repetitive in a good way that you'll have to redo all the missions and only have slight variations between each stages, but if you want to play a game that you can always come back to on lazy days, bombing ghosts and gamepad support, this is the perfect game to pick.


Pros
  • Intuitive gameplay
  • High replayability value
  • Bombs
  • Catchy tunes and cute sound effects
  • Compare scores
  • Mindless fun
Cons
  • Boring and better played every once in awhile
  • Repetitive missions
  • Music gets stale if just the base game

Get the game, it's worth every penny!

I have played very few other games that look this great, play this tight, and clench your butt cheeks as hard as this game does. This is game design perfection, and an absolute must buy for any fan of the twitch gameplay that made the arcades so great!

This is by far the best game of Pac-Man since the original and one of the best remakes in video game history. This game is much faster and more insane than the original. This will push hardcore Pac-Man fans to the limit. You ever think you'd play a game of Pac-Man being chased by dozens of ghosts and the game speeding up by about 50%? The correct button input is critical here.

It's 2016 and I'm addicted to PAC-MAN??

I love the mad speed and the skins. I feel like there should be more music, though, a lot more. That said, the music was a big surprise for me. I wasn't expecting such an excellent soundtrack with large detailed songs that helped keep my heart-rate somewhere in orbit while singing "Doooo, doooo, doo, doo, do, dooo, doooo!!!".

The most butt-clenchingly intense version of Pac-Man I've ever played. I sh*t you not.

The best PAC-MAN game I've ever played.

The current price with all the DLCs is probably the best offer i've ever bought,

Great time killer, great visuals, awesome gameplay for every gamer (casual or hardcore), many different modes, great soundtrack,

There's absolutely nothing bad about this game. GO GET IT NOW!

This is Pac-Man on steroids. But seriously, this game is a great twist on the Pac-Man game formula. It has a few different modes to see how high you can get your score in a set time limit. Another mode being how many ghosts can you eat in a row before they return to normal and start hunting you down.

Lots of fun for anyone who enjoys Pac-Man.

It's a great implementation of the classic arcade game. The only minor annoyance being that "special" levels must be purchased seperately. The levels are not worth the extra $$ in my opinion.

It's Pac-Man, only on steroids and LSD. Everything about this game was made with love to celebrate the big yellow ball. This is the definitive version of Pac-Man, and I easily recommend this game. If you like comboing and fast-paced games, or if you're just a fan of Pac-Man, then you owe it to yourself to play it.

This is the best PAC-MAN version I have played since the original, although it has a bit of a twist. All the game modes are time based so you could have a 5 or 10min run at a score, or have a specific challenge like how many ghosts you can eat in one go or how quickly you can collect a certain number of fruits. There is a ton of maps and PAC-MAN themes you can unlock too, although I wish the classic theme was unlocked by default.

It feels like an authentic PAC-MAN game; it has all the sound effects you would expect, good soundtrack and responsive controls. You need those responsive controls as it gets really fast when you survive longer! To make it more forgiving, you do have bombs and a slow motion "bullet time" effect giving you an extra split-second to make the right move. Even with these tools at your disposal there still an excellent challenge for your reflexes; Online leaderboards as well to challenge your friends :)

One thing that could definitely have been left out is the Facebook medals to earn in-game; this should not be part of the games' achievements! At most it should be an option for those who want to use FB, not required to get all the in-game achievements nor plaster the icons with a 'Share' tag till you do share it!

Facebook farce aside, the game itself is a great trip down memory lane introducing a modern twist to the PAC-MAN legacy.
