The remasterings and remakes of the classic PAC-MAN games continues with this next release. Following on from the compilation of PAC-MAN Museum+ is a game that was arguably missing. The classic 3D platformer PAC-MAN WORLD is remade for modern consoles in PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC, out today on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The PAC-FAM have arranged a surprise birthday for PAC-MAN. However, when he returns home, he notices that no-one is there. They have all been kidnapped by the evil TOC-MAN and his ghost minions. TOC-MAN has this strange obsession with PAC-MAN, even right down to wanting to look like him. As iconic as PAC-MAN is, I don’t think there are many people out there that would choose to look like him, but each to their own.
PAC-MAN must then travel to Ghost Island to rescue his family. Each member is hidden away in one of the six themed worlds: Pirate Ship, Ruins, Space, Funhouse, Factory and Boss Mansion. Each area is full of platforming goodness and a bevvy of secrets to uncover. PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC also features:
- With improved UI, fine-tuned mechanics and updated visuals, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is a modernized classic!
- Dodge Ghosts, solve environmental puzzles, rescue the PAC-FAM, and more in this platforming adventure!
- Butt-bounce, rev-roll, PAC-DOT attack, and hover-jump to the final face-off against TOC-MAN!
- Play a collection of 3D mazes in MAZE MODE! Clear QUEST MODE to unlock the original PAC-MAN game in ORIGINAL MODE!
PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is out now on the Xbox Store, priced at £34.99. The original is arguably one of the best PAC-MAN spinoffs so hopes are high for this remake. Our review will have everything you need to know coming very soon. Let us know in the comments if you will be picking this one up.
