Pac-Man Gets an iOS Platformer

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 7, 2011 in Videogames |


With its simplistic controls and straight-forward gameplay, the original Pac-Man has cemented itself in many of our hearts. We’ve seen several attempts at Pac-Man platformers in the past, most recently with the Pac-Man World series, and so far none have really captured the charm of the arcade classic. Namco is looking to give it one more try with their latest Pac-Man title, Pac’N-Jump for the iOS. 

Like the original, the game uses a simple control scheme, taking advantage of the accelerometer present in the various iDevices. By tilting the screen left and right, you’ll navigate a seemingly endless series of platforms while avoiding enemies — or eating them, depending on if you’ve snagged a large pill — and collecting fruit. The higher you make it, the higher your score. Sounds great, right? The app is being offered at the introductory price of $0.99 for a limited time, so snag it while it’s cheap.
