BANDAI NAMCO is back with another Pac-Man game, another game to while your time away. In a surprising move, the Japanese game developers didn’t go with a typical Pac-Man setup where there’s a maze and our beloved yellow hero goes around chomping on stuff and ghosts. PAC-MAN Puzzle Tour is a match-3 game, closer to Candy Crush than the original Pac-Man.
Players will have to play through levels of puzzles, matching 3 or more of the same fruit together in order to eliminate them from the playing area. The simple storyline says that our beloved ghosts from the original Pac-Man game (Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde) have brought along a bunch of ghost friends and stole all the fruit. The game will then ask you to collect all the fruit back and catch the ghosts.
The game gives Pac-Man new power-ups to help him finish level after level of match-3 games. Players will discover that Pac-Man has gained new special moves that he can use to collect more fruit and deal with the ghosts. As these games go, there are over 100 levels for gamers to work their way through. The earlier ones mimic the look of the Pac-Man classic game, just to give your eyes something familiar to work with, but eventually the game will break out into different locations around the world.
The developers have also put in some new characters to unlock, so that you have goals to shoot for in the game. Once you unlock them, you can use characters like Mappy, and Katamari Damacy. The game is now available free to download via the Google Play Store, with the usual IAPs. If you want a new puzzle game to check out, try this one. Pick it up at the link below.
