This game was released in 1980. Player has to move a virtual creature left and right, up and down following the maze avoiding ghosts and other obstacles. To find out more about this character download Pac-Man.


This game is so popular that you hardly could miss it. It consists of several levels, which differ from each other meaning that graphics are different too a little bit – just in slight details which give the impression. In general, the design of maze is extremely simple but stylish and distinctive. The main character is cute, running fast on his way to a lovely soundtrack. There are comments with clues. This strange voice indicates where PacMan should be careful to avoid danger or attentive to collect the fruits. Sounding can be tuned out.


Rules are primitive, but the game is not easy at all. Player navigates Pac Man which is to get to the end of the maze alive picking up Power Dots and eating Fruits as many as possible. The difficulty is that fruits should be eaten at the exact moment. So, you should pull it off. Four multicolored ghosts wait when a walker makes mistakes in order to kill him. Points are provided when a Pac Man manages to perform all tasks. When the maze competes successfully, a player is transferred to the next level. It is not as simple as it may seem.

Though ghosts are fun, still they are dangerous. If Pac Man contacts one of them, he will lose one of three lives he gets at the beginning. You can change 3 up to 5 in the settings. Besides, you can get additional life when 10 000 points are received. This amount is also can be changed.


Controls are simple. The game is intended for Xbox One so a player can use a stick and control pad. Variants of moves allow directing Pac Man to the needed side, to make him do things which gain points: to collect items for instance. You can pause the game and restart from that very moment. It is also possible to make ghosts moving slower to make the game easier.

Replay Value

Levels are of a different grade of complicity and full with various choices, so you can repeat every stage in order to discover all existing secrets which you have not noticed before or just to master your skills and become even faster twisty. Get to the depth of the environment where you are at the moment - you will see that even a simple route is much more complicated as it seems.

And even more, possibilities are available. As you know in this game family there are various releases with peculiarities. You may enjoy a female version or cartoon stories.


It is not possible to describe all the details of the game in PAC-MAN review. Only your personal experience will be telling. So try and watch out: the game is addictive.
