We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that are fans of the classic Pac-Man arcade game, as Namco Bandai Games has just released a brand new Doodle Jump-style Pac-Man game for iOS devices. What’s even better is the fact that it’s just 59p/99c to download.
As Anthony Usher over at pocketgamer.co.uk recently noted, players are tasked with controlling Pac-Man as he travels up the screen by bouncing and jumping on platforms without falling. He will of course have to collect different items and avoid enemy characters along the way.
The Pac ‘N-Jump vertical platformer game features all the familiar elements from past Pac-Man titles, including Power Pellets, yellow Pac-Dots and fruit, which give Pac-Man a speed boost, renders him temporarily invincible and enables him to defeat his enemies.
It also features Game Center support, which provides players with leaderboards and achievements. According to the itunes.apple.com website, users can either control Pac-Man by tilting the device, by using an analog-style virtual control pad or by using a digital-style virtual control pad.
The Pac ‘N-Jump app is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, but does require the device to be running iOS 3.0 or later. Do you like the sound of the Pac ‘N-Jump game?
