Mix up your maze

Presentation

Mix up your maze

Over the last 30 years PAC-MAN has undergone a few makeovers, while staying true to the original maze-based gameplay. PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX allows you to experience a little bit of the yellow guy's earlier years with loads of extensive customisation options. Play with retro-style pixelated characters from yesteryear, or go for a more modern twist and give PAC-MAN and the fiendish Ghosts a neon update - there are lots of variations to experiment with.

You can also have some fun with the mazes themselves and give them different textures, colours and looks to make your PAC-MAN experience a little more personal. Colourful bricks, fluorescent lights and traditional grids are all available for you to chomp your way through.

As you gain more points and build up speed, the musical score of electronic beats will provide the perfect backdrop to your frantic arcade experience. Pick your favourite from a wide selection and carve your path strategically around each maze.

With nine different mazes, loads of game modes and plenty of customisation, this arcade classic has the potential to become more addictive than ever before.

Gameplay

I ain't afraid of no ghosts

PAC-MAN has been fairly consistent in his 30 years of life, making his way round various mazes, munching on Pac-Dots and evading waves of angry Ghosts, hell-bent on ending his virtual feast. PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX, however, introduces some new twists to make the PAC-MAN experience even more frantic, exciting and addictive than ever.

As PAC-MAN, you chomp your way through nine mazes filled with irresistible Pac-Dots and delicious fruits which earn you points, unlock new levels and give you a great sense of satisfaction. As you tear around the different mazes you'll be confronted by angry Ghosts who will end your food rampage, and your life, if they touch you. Also lurking within the mazes are sleeping Ghosts, who are harmless until you get too close and wake them from their gentle slumber. Once awake, they will join their angry comrades and hurtle after you.

There are of course, ways to outsmart these colourful spirits - one of which is to eat Power Pellets. These magical little treats will pop up in mazes for you to devour and, once swallowed, will turn your enemies into blue, vulnerable beings that not only make a great snack, but also earn you loads of points, especially when gobbled in bulk. Build up huge chains of Ghosts, and when you've got plenty on your trail, strategically munch a Power Pellet and rack up loads of points by changing direction and scoffing all of your pursuers.

Along with the sleeping Ghosts, bombs have also been introduced to help you out if you get into some sticky situations. If you're being chased by too many Ghosts or you're stuck in a corner with no way out, simply set off a bomb and see your foes blown back to their Ghost Hideout.

Try your hand at various game modes across the different mazes, including loads of Time Trials and Score Attacks and unlock even more arcade mayhem.
