Professional Review


PAC-MAN 256 is an endless runner game by the creators of the famous mobile runner Crossy Road, Hipster Whale studio and Bandai Namco. In the game, you have to play for the original PAC-MAN that became 2,5D, complete various objectives, and try to score as many points as you can. Download PAC-MAN 256 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac OS, Linux, Android, or iOS and start the endless run.

Graphics: 5

PAC-MAN 256 game is a full-scale remake of the legendary 1980 arcade machine franchise by Bandai Namco. Developers changed the camera view to the isometry, so you can see everything under 45° angle. They also created multiple new locations that present different color schemes and visual effects.

Gameplay: 5

As in the original game, PAC-MAN 256 gameplay allows you to control PAC-MAN, collect yellow dots and different power-ups. You always have to avoid deadly ghosts and try to kill them with power-ups. The new feature is that you can eat 256 dots in a row to kill all visible enemies in a moment. There are also such perks as a tornado, laser, cloning, and score doubling.

Besides from being eaten by ghosts, you can also fall off the endless maze. The unstoppable glitch destroys the maze from the bottom, so you shouldn’t turn back if you want to continue moving on. Typically for runners, you can revive the character once a game by paying with coins or watching advertisements.

You can always change the look of the game in the main menu. Console and desktop versions enable robust multiplayer for up to 4 users. There are no free-to-play mobile features as well as the game is paid for these platforms. In the co-op mode, you can choose various characters, such as the robot, the square chicken from Crossy Road, and many others.

Controls: 5

We tested desktop, mobile, and console versions for this PAC-MAN 256 review and figured out that they have similarly convenient controls. You can make PAC-MAN turn only left and right, so you need only two buttons on a keyboard or a gamepad. In the touchscreen version, you have to swipe in the right direction to turn PAC-MAN.

Replay Value: 5

It’s impossible to complete PAC-MAN 256 full game as it’s endless! Procedural generation keeps the maze growing until you fail and lose. The world record score becomes bigger every day, but you may try to beat it. Remember, that it took as many as 10 years for the first human to beat PAC-MAN arcade machine.

Conclusion

PAC-MAN 256 is a surprisingly quality remake of the legendary arcade game. Developers managed to preserve the original style and gameplay features and flavored them with many new power-ups, characters, multiplayer, and maze themes. It’s probably the best game in the series since the original release 39 years ago!

Conclusion

Download PAC-MAN 256 to experience one of the best remakes of one of the most recognizable titles in history.
