PAC-MAN

Namco Bandai has put two of its Xbox for Windows Phone titles on sale, PAC-MAN and PAC-MAN CE DX. As the name suggests, they're faithful ports of the vintage arcade game from the 80s where players control a character who enjoys eating yellow dots. The famous ghosts Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde attempt to prevent the dots from being gobbled up. The gameplay is both addictive and humorous and has been tried and tested as a definite purchase.

Both titles have been available on Windows Phone for some time now, but it's good to see them made more affordable.

We previously reviewed both PAC-MAN and PAC-MAN CE DX, but what's the difference between the two? The Championship Edition DX is an evolved version of the classic title, sporting the same gameplay but spicing up the formula slightly. The maze does not start out entirely filled with dots – each of its sides contains a smaller matching set. Eat all of the dots on either side and a fruit appears on the opposite side.

Chomping the fruit triggers the formation of a new, different pattern of dots. The game goes back and forth like that, with new paths constantly being created as Pac-Man clears sides of the screen. Instead of going on forever, each of DX’s game play modes is timed. It’s all about getting as many points as possible by finding the best paths between the dots.

Should you be an avid fan of the old games and wish to pick up a bargain, these two titles are well worth checking out. What's more is players also have the added bonus of collecting gamerscore through achievements. You can download PAC-MAN (was $4.99, now $2.99) and PAC-MAN CE DX (was $6.99, now $4.99) from the Windows Phone Store. Available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. via: WindowsPhoneItaly
