PAC-MAN App User Reviews & Comments
Turn buffering sets this Pac-Man apartOne thing I’ve begun to look for in a Pac-Man release, and I have this and 256 on my phone and CE 1&2 as well as Arcade Game Series Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man on Steam, is the ability to register a turn in advance on any straight away. The Arcade Series lack this. In Pac-Mans with buffering, I feel like my deaths were entirely my fault. In games without, I often find myself shouting to myself that I turned that way- why didn’t it turn how I pressed. Not a problem here. Some of the best Pac controls around right here. In a Pac-Man review that’s all that matters..Version: 6.5.5
Top Retro Game Of MobileTo be honest there is not much to say. This game takes us all back into the past where gaming started out. But this version of the game of awesome it has all kinds of mazes and difficulties as well witch to me gives mobile gamers like me to get a look at the game your about to play. The game itself is awesome and I believe this game can make Editors Choice on App Store. To be honest I play Fortnite and PUBG mobile and they are boring compared to what game this is. I mean who hates good old retro gaming it brings memories back. For people who give this game a 1 star ya better think again or are you a real retro gamer. For all adults or kids who knows about retro gaming and history of gaming ya know what I’m talking about. We have all have had some history with PAC Man before this game but this is probably as far as a modern PAC Man can go. Once again it’s not one of those pay to win games. For instance Roblox is a big pay to win game and it’s stealing people’s money but this game is the opposite of that and that’s why this game and Bandai Namco deserve awesome awards for this game. Thank you for your attention and PAC Man lovers continue with this game it is an awesome and mostly all around best retro game. Thank You:).Version: 9.0.2
Bought it and now they wont let me play itBought this game several years ago and it was awesome. Today my kids wanted to play and it came up with a “select your age” box and when my kid said he was 11 it locked him out of the game and suggested he download some Wreck it Ralph BS. First, I already paid for this game and expect to be able to keep playing without having any ad ware or other garbage. And telling me to get another game that has nothing to do with this game is just slimey. If they do not restore my original purchase and fix the age garbage I will make a formal complaint to Apple and demand my money back. Developers need to be taught that, when I buy it, I own it. They cant just “decide” to “upgrade” me to a version that has ads and expects me to pay to play every game. What is this new “energy” crap! Fix this or give me my money back. BAD DEVELOPER! No cookie!.Version: 7.1.0
Love it a lotHi my name is Jade and I love this game a lot you can like choose mazes or something and there’s a PAC-MAN and I like the ghost it’s like you have five lives or something and then you eat all the pellets and me and my brother just played it and we like to have a competition to see who finishes the maze first and you also get to choose skins of the PAC-MAN but there’s another version of PAC-MAN called Mrs. Pac-Man I love it and it’s like so cool right now and you have to download it and we have Mrs. Pac-Man on the PS4 and also The game is like Mrs. Pac-Man except on the mrs. Pac-Man version when you complete all the levels on Mrs. Pac-Man miss Pac-Man and Pac-Man kiss together that’s kind of disgusting but I love the PAC-MAN game it is so cool really cool and there’s also a people who says it’s bad you should download the game Love it a lot you should download it and also Jalen loves it besides Jalen’s my brother I just saw my brother playing PAC-MAN now he’s playing a different game and every time he sees my iPad he takes it and plays Pac-Man and download this game please please please please please download it I know you are about to download it and don’t forget read my comment bye-bye.Version: 9.2.7
Love the GameAs like many reviewers here I am one of those old school gamers that actually remembers and loves the classic arcade version, I’m sure that is precisely why we keep purchasing this game over every single mobile phone! I personally have had this game on every mobile since my first flip phone. This version is great regarding replicating original graphics and gameplay (swipe control only) however and I’m sure that I’m not alone on this I want to be able to purchase a version that only focuses on the classic portal version I really don’t care for all the extra “bloatware” unnecessary mazes for just ruin the experience all I want is what I had in 1980 That would be One maze not countless mazes 1 maze that increased difficulty level each time the mazes are cleared, I’m sure there is some sort of marketing reasons but for folks like myself I only want the original game nothing else. Bandai Namco.Version: 6.6.3
Random right turns...This game is awesome but Pac-Man randomly makes right turns when he feels like it. I’ve messed with the sensitivity option with no luck Pac-Man still turns right when I want to keep going straight. If you can overcome this really annoying feature than this is the game for you. Also what are all these redbull codes good for anyway? I’m not understanding the concept behind the codes or why on earth anyone would by these credits to play a few maps that don’t get you anywhere or do anything special. Fix the glitches on this game please..Version: 7.0.9
Stopped workingMarch 28, 2020.....stopped working. Loads forever and eventually tells me to update. Removed the app (several times) and reloaded. No change. What did you all break? Also, like someone else mentioned, the newest version is not as user friendly than the previous version. Looks nicer but much harder to navigate May 13, 2020. Still no real fixing of the game. I’ve been collecting coins for the Chocolate tournament for weeks. Half the time I come into the game it just goes to a window for me to claim those Chocolate coins and is in a constant loop with that window with no way out but kill the game. On the times that I can actually get in to play, eventually the Chocolate window is back up and the fun times are quickly over. Right now there’s only one tournament to select from and that’s been for weeks. So totally frustrating for a game that used to run smooth with no problems..Version: 8.0.3
Do Not Like Game After New UpdateI have been a big fan of pac man, since forever. My son got me hooked on this game. I used to take him to the arcades & we played till it closed. We always went home broke. I have a lot of health issues & stay home, very boring. My son added this game for me & I loved playing it. But after this new update about 1 month or so ago, it’s terrible !!!! Now they don’t give you any chance of extra plays like the other one. Some friends & I feel like this updated system is forcing you to buy if you want to continue playing. That’s Very Sad, because I know myself & others do not have money for that. But I do want to say ; “Thank You So Very Much” for letting me enjoy a little bit of time playing before the new update......Version: 6.5.6
Wading through ads & offersAll I want to do is play PAC-Man. You know the classic game people spent billions of quarters playing. Within this app, there is a pretty good copy of the original game. The problem is they infected this app with so many “offers” and ads and alternate game versions that you can play for money. It makes those looking for the original PAC-Man game wade through a river of crap to get to the game. I’d rather have them just charge a couple of bucks for the classic game so I can get rid of all of the other crap. The Ms. PAC-Man app is exactly what it should be. A more faithful representation of the original without all of the unneeded bloat added for a few dollars..Version: 7.2.6
Fun but not flawlessIt is a fun game, but it is not near as hard as the original. You move at about a third of the speed you would be moving at an arcade machine, therefore making the game kind of easy. I hope you can add a mode where you move at the original speed, because I love PAC-MAN and I would really like to have a more authentic gameplay. There is another bug on the IPod Touch where the joystick glitches out and leads you in random directions. The ghosts also can sometimes, but rarely, go through walls. I was trying to get to a power pellet, like most usually do, when a ghost pulled a very “Interesting” move. That was on the first level. Unacceptable. It is still fun and I love it though..Version: 6.6.3
We need more!Pac-Man was my very first video game I ever played so I obviously think thank you all for putting it on the App Store. But don’t you think we need more than just Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man? And I’m not saying we need more Pac-Man games, I’m saying we need more games like Galaga, Dragon Buster, The Tower Of Druaga, Sky Kid, Rally-X, and many more. A lot of people would possibly love to see them up on the App Store. I’m saying we need the games that actually made Bandai Namco possible. Now for the Pac-Man app. The app is great, I love it. Please read this in consideration that you might wanna upload some of the games I suggested. That’s all I’ll say and I hope this reaches out to the developers. I’m outta here..Version: 8.0.3
40th Anniversary changesWhat a mess! Now two of the tournaments are missing, but you will get bonus coins if you play one of them. Good luck on that one. Having to go through each maze individually is ridiculous. Please either fix your 40th anniversary rollout or bring back the last version. So disappointing, especially now that we are all looking for diversions until life gets back to normal again. I’m playing in tournaments and am ranked in gold, silver or bronze, but another feature says I’m not ranked because I didn’t play. You can’t have it both ways. Please fix this. I’m playing the same way I did when everything was working properly..Version: 9.0.4
Very poor control of movementThe game and the boards themselves are great, but unfortunately, it’s impossible to simulate proper arcade joystick control of PAC-MAN by using swipe screen or button control. If you’re an expert Pac-Man player, you need to be able to move Pac-Man quickly and accurately. Without a manual joystick, on the harder levels, where you must move quickly, it becomes impossible to do that. In other words, when you swipe left, sometimes Pac-Man moves down or in another direction instead, and then you die. This happens every time the game doesn’t record your intended move correctly.... which for me is SEVERAL Times EVERY game. And swiping to make quick turns just does not work with the high degree of accuracy that you need to clear the expert (Elite) levels. If you try switching to button control, it’s not much better. Nothing can simulate a manual joystick..Version: 6.5.0
Coin droughtThe game is very fun, but coins are little hard to come across. They are without a doubt the most important aspect of the game considering you need many of them to buy new levels. Of course you get a few by beating new levels that you just bought but that is a very slow process. The missions barely help either because some missions will require you to eat ghosts or pellets from mazes that you haven’t even unlocked yet. The app apparently says that you can watch videos to change to new missions but they never work as the app always says that there are currently no offers available. It displays the same statement whenever you try to multiply your earned coin count. Please make your app experience better by making coins more easily accessible. Thank you..Version: 7.3.1
A very dissatisfied customerI purchased app for the pac man classic game a few years ago. A months ago, after updating my iPhone, I somehow lost the original game. Later, I found it at the app store and repurchased it. The original game worked as advertised for months, but then the pac man 40th anniversary was announced and my access to the original pac man classic game disappeared. In its place came a strange version of the classic game. It deviated from the classic in very limiting ways. I find the current version of the pac man game to be quite limited and VERY BORING. I would like my original classic pac man game which I originally paid for returned to me. I’m sure many others have been disappointed by the newest version. Please honor my original purchase. Many thanks in advance. A very dissatisfied customer..Version: 9.0.2
Great! but retirement pop-up adds are annoyingThis game is GREAT. I mean, who doesn’t love pac man? You can play classic, colorful mazes, do tournaments, and complete daily challenges. However, I’ve only had it for a few days and I’ve started to notice that some of the adds that pop up after you’ve finished a game can’t be exited out of. I’ve had to close the app, reopen, and be forced to lose progress. If the developer sees this PLEASE FIX if you can it’s REALLY annoying and makes me not want to play at all. It’s really a shame it’s literally the most classic arcade game of all time. Also please don’t send a bot and say “Thank you for reporting this...” I get that adds create revenue for the business but could you at least give us the ones you can get out of?.Version: 9.0.4
An Enjoyable Cashgrab, to say the least.This game has not been as fun as it looks. Pac-Man is not the game for me, but I have still had some fun playing it. And just because the game isn’t for me doesn’t mean I’ll dock stars. The mechanic of playing stages, and getting coins to spend on more stages or whatnot is inspired and I really enjoyed that idea. The problem arises when that’s not the only way to get coins. They make it very clear and pretty much cram down your throat how much they want to make money off of this. Ads are everywhere, and you can pretty much just win with no skill involved if you were willing to pull out your wallet. It’s kind of sad, to be honest. You can see how much effort was put into this game and how passionate the developers probably were until some businessmen had to barge in and gave it microtransactions and ads galore. A solid game, but disappointing to see how much people are willing to ruin a game for some money..Version: 7.1.9
Great game, only one flawI’ve been enjoying this version of Pac-Man a lot, but I do have one issue, which is the tokens. I would rank this a five star game if tokens weren’t used to unlock levels. I think it should just be the traditional you beat a level you unlock the next level, but you have to earn tokens to unlock the next level which takes some of the fun out of the game. I paid the dollar to get rid of the ads, but I’m constantly feeling pressured to spend more money to get tokens so I can play more levels of the game..Version: 6.4.7
MEMORIES!!I can remember going to the laundry place with my parents an they let me play PAC-Man while they work, but I would always either stop too soon or get scared to play because of those monsters coming after me lol 😂 the mazes are Confusing but I love it. Makes you wanna scream from a close call. I miss doing it on the box (don’t know how to call it) it seems easier than having to swipe it on the iPad cuz I don’t know if I’ll do it in time but other than that it feels Extremely good to play it again 💘.Version: 6.6.3
Why update map selection screen?I’ve put up with having to scroll through a few pages of maps in mission mode but why did the developer decide that it was a good idea to change that in v8 so that you have to swipe through every map rather than an array of maps. And if you didn’t know if the map was in each of its skill level, you have to go through it again for each skill level. Is it so hard to implement this like in tournament mode so when you select the tournament, it automatically goes to the map? No more hunting down maps and just go directly to the mission. The fact this has been the behavior since the beginning is a big oversight and still not corrected. Fix this and I don’t care if you have to swipe multiple times before it moves on the next map..Version: 8.0.1
Nausea or Nostalgia ?I purchased the Premium/original PacMan for just that; I understand the drive (profit) to sell mazes and ‘tokens’ as well as the drive to have a unified app.... how about this.. 1. Don’t ask me to open a ticket (seems that this is your reply to any negative feedback and you know it is just to make most go away) 2. Give us an option in settings to turn everything but ‘classic’ Pac-Man off... while in classic mode, give us the option to turn it (the ‘new’ content) back on.... telling me my premium features are now free doesn’t undo the mess you have made of an iconic game. Developer suggests taking it outside of this forum... while I am complaining, swipe control... brings out the OS swipe from bottom menu a bit too much, maybe an option to disable this during play?.Version: 6.6.3
Great game!I love this game. I love the fact that it never gets boring like traditional pac man can because there are constant challenges and new levels to play all the time. My only complaint is that it takes quite a while before you have enough coins to buy a new difficult level. One suggestion also is to be able to “skip” a challenge for a time/coin fee. I currently have a quest to earn 100,000 points in one game and Im no where near getting that. Also, if anyone can provide me with some info on how the “Don’t Eat Ghosts” challenges work, that would be great. I’ve got a quest to beat level 5 in the I Know maze without eating ghosts and I have several times without the quest being checked off. I can’t figure out if you need to not eat ghosts through the whole game (which is nearly impossible) or maybe do you need to beat the whole maze and not eat the ghosts on that level. Either way, I can’t get rid of it. Help would be appreciated 😊.Version: 6.5.6
More LevalsHello I absolutely love this game. I would like it if there was more free levels as I just started playing. I love PacMan so more levels would be nice. I also wish there were some free elite levels and free challenging levels. If you could add this that would be nice. I personally think you should make a big update adding more levels and get rid of some of the classic stages. Just more levels would do good for the game. And more people might play. Other than that this is a good game so if this review gets posted when people browse seeing if they should get this game I think you should and this is overall a great game. Thanks P.S The original review was posted by my son..Version: 7.0.9
FULL OF STUPIDITY AND CORRUPT ERRORSFirst of all, the in app purchase of full mazes in the Lite version does not in turn register on other devices where they want you to pay the same $4.99 again! Secondly, their design of the joystick is so pathetic and inauthentic, monkeys could have done better with no effort. Idiots, a joystick should always spring back to neutral (as with the original arcade game and all such)! Also it should be simple and an exact replication of the original without all the gaudy GOOFY romper room red arrows and such which NOBODY is looking at anyway as the game is played! If you are going to offer an authentic simulation of the original classic then GO ALL THE WAY MORONS! Don't screw it up on the joystick! You can add whatever newer innovations you want as OPTIONS! You stupid monkeys got it right on your Galaxian 30th, so why screw up here with the most popular arcade hit of all time?! Sloppy no taste Morons!.Version: 6.5.6
Give me stressless Pac-Man!I have so many glitches in the new version, that eventually, THIS 62 year ole gal may have to decide NOT to reinstall the game, in my MANY attempts to reset the game (I have to uninstall and reinstall ), when it gets stuck in the chocolate challenge reward and allowed me to collect as many points as my heart desired, as long as I want to sit there and tap on my screen. Crazy thing is, it pops up randomly.... I don’t play the chocolate challenge to prompt the rewards for it!!!!Some challenge😒 FYI: the points are still waiting in my bank for you to take. And where the heck are my crowns???? Come on guys.... it’s covid season. I work on the front lines. You don’t owe me an thing, however my pac man is a huge part of my downtime/decompress time!! I love my Pac-Man, and would settle for the old version if you can’t fix my game, make my challenges work, and tell me if there are new guidelines to collecting the darn crowns!!!! Please don’t harm my Pac-Man spirit!!!.Version: 8.0.3
AmazingI really like how they were able to put all the Pac-Man levels into 1 app, along with all the additional custom levels too. This app lets me be able to bring Pac-Man on the go! Yes, the controls can be a little weird, but overall the game is pretty good. I just hope you guys can make the controls respond faster. Some people complained about the tokens, but in my opinion I think the tokens work pretty well. I mean you can use the them to buy level packs, to survive in levels, and other things. So yes, I believe that this game is amazing and should keep up the good work!.Version: 7.2.6
Having a hard time with this one lately.It’s been about a week now since I received push notifications for Pac Man missions. So I have tried to open the app a few times and at the bottom of the opening screen I see the spinning gray wheel and the app never opens. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app, refreshing the app, and of course powering down the phone. Nothing seems to be working. Please help. [Edit] Back to good now! Thank you..Version: 6.5.6
TokensI just downloaded this game two days ago and already see that the tokens are going to be an issue. It stops you from advancing even in the game itself. Once you stop the game, it gives you a time limit to earn one token at a time completing tasks before you can unlock the next level which is frustrating when you have an allotted amount of time to play. (Like during your lunch or a break in the day). Especially because you can’t complete these tasks until time has elapsed. For example you cannot complete task #1 until 15 hours has passed. Or you cannot try this task again for another two hours. So frustrating will probably have to delete this game because I cannot play it out will. #Sad.Version: 6.5.6
Great game but needs better attention to bugs from the developers!I don’t usually write reviews but I am this time because I’m fed up with this game crashing on me every time I go to play a tournament!!! It happened directly after the last update for the game (a week and a half ago). I’ve tried contacting support with a claim but I’ve yet to hear back from anyone! I used to play this game every day but I can’t now because it wants to stay stuck when I select a tournament to play in. It’s aggravating to not be able to play at all! I’m not sure what happened during the update and I wish I could fix it. If they would contact me back and let me know how to, I’d really appreciate it. I just want my app to work correctly! I gave it 3 stars until it gets resolved..Version: 9.2.5
Used to be good but they ruined it. No mfi controller support anymore.So I used to play this game daily. I loved it. It was near perfect and a 5 star game for me. Now it’s a one star. Why? Read on: When this game first came out, I found the on screen sliding controls were just horrible but that was okay as I bought a mfi Nimbus game controller to work with both my ipad and Apple TV. But mainly bought for this game. It worked great that way. Then for some strange reason in late summer/early fall 2018 they decided to rewrite the app in some way and strangely removed mfi controller support even though such support is still listed in the app description. Why? Who knows...they never answer that question. I got excited when I saw an update with “joystick” support, but that was merely a horrible on screen joystick, not support for a hardware controller they once had. So now the game is once again horrible to me and their customer support is equally horrible. They literally do not respond to my support tickets asking why this was removed and when will it be back considering it is still listed on app description. So I am done with this game until they put back hardware controller support that never should have been removed in the first place. RE: that developer response: why would support respond to me now when they didn’t the first two times? That is a DEAD END that goes nowhere..Version: 7.0.6
Was a great game, but...I have always loved playing this game, from the time I had it on Atari when I was younger, to having it on my Kindle, To now having it on my iPad. However, there are some major issues going on with this game. I have recently lost about 85 tokens I had left from a recent in-app purchase. I have tried restoring my purchases, but nothing happens. I have tried restarting my iPad, and that doesn’t work. I have also tried deleting and reinstalling the app, and still nothing. All of my crowns for completing mazes are still there, but not the tokens I have purchased or earned. And when I complete a challenge or a maze, it says I have earned tokens, but the token counter still reads zero. I recently let the ghosts eat me, so I could try the resurrect feature, which would normally cost tokens, and it said an unexpected error occurred. What gives?.Version: 6.6.3
Good, quite buggy right now thoughI’ve had the app before and it’s worked fine, the issue now is that with the 40th anniversary event gone. I finished it, and I see that I have the pac album complete, but the pac-trail doesn’t load up, it’s acting like it’s locked, but the account memory is supposed to be saved right? I did and completed the adventure mode within the limited time event on one IPad, but I won’t load up my rewards like the pac-trail on the other. I fear that I’ll loose the pac-trail if I try to remove the app from the other iPad for space. Could you guys please have a look and maybe make a patch for getting the pac trail and pac album across safely from one device to another for a single account on two devices please?.Version: 9.2.2
Ads don’t always work - prevents coin collection or game continuationThe majority of the time, ads do not load. This is a problem if you are trying to save up coins. If you get game over, you can chose to pay with coins or watch an ad for a “free” continue. You will end up spending coins to continue because the reward almost never functions, and don’t want to risk loading an ad that doesn’t function (if you do, you won’t have the option of paying after a failed attempt). The regular and double coin reward payouts don’t work..Version: 7.3.1
Great game but issues with swipingThis was my favorite game when I was a kid. And playing it now is fun....but also frustrating!! Swiping is not the same as having a joystick but if it worked right, it would be better! When I swipe down, the whole screen moves down so only 1/2 is shown. Can’t you make it so it stays locked in place when you’re playing? And like other players wrote, sometimes Pacman goes in a different direction than where I am trying to get him to go. I’d give it 4-5 stars if that were fixed. Otherwise, I love that there are multiple screens and difficulty levels..Version: 9.2.4
New updates nerf progressionUpdated review from a daily player: In this game, you can complete in tournaments to earn more coins to buy new mazes. Tournaments refreshed, traditionally, every 1-5 days, so there was always a different tourney you could compete in to earn coins. The tourneys are now stuck at a refresh rate of “15+ days.” So forget about even enjoying a new tourney, let alone get your coins. In order to even buy into a tourney, you use “stamina”, of which you could have up to 5 at any given time. Stamina refills over time. I notice today that the max stamina you can have is now set to 3. This game is now essentially locked behind a paywall and the fun is completely gone..Version: 7.3.1
No more free retry no reward for next winThere are no longer rewards for completing old mazes. No free retries. No video rewards. You have to pay coins for PAC-MAN classic when there used to be free videos for it. To do a classic PAC-MAN task you have to actually pay coins to do it which either cancels the reward or puts you in the negative. On top of that, there are sometimes no registration of your progress when you complete a task then you have to redo the task multiple times until it registers. And of course I've literally swiped up and watched PAC-MAN not react many times. And there are many freezes. The game used to be better months ago..Version: 6.6.3
“Give me more money for my 40 year old game you already bought from me”Paid $4.99 each for iPhone and iPad versions of PAC-MAN Premium. Now they don’t work because PAC-MAN “needs to update his mazes”. It’s been the same maze since 1980, buddy. This new version promises I will continue to enjoy the “same PAC-MAN Premium experience” but now with ads, apparently. “Why did Pac-Man Premium close and why? The reason the game closed is because we wanted to create a better and more engaging experience for all our PAC-MANiacs, as such, we decided it was time to focus our efforts on a single, unified PAC-MAN version. This was not an easy decision, but with your continued support, we hope to build the best PAC-MAN game. As you might expect, these new and exciting plans came with a downside and unfortunately, the PAC-MAN Premium version was removed from the Apple App Store on January 15th, 2018. On the same date, January 15th, the game servers were shut down. After this date, players only had access to limited features that were available for offline play. We strongly recommend (if you haven't done so already) that you transfer your Premium account to the other PAC-MAN version, which can be downloaded for free here: Download PAC-MAN, as soon as possible. As a Premium user, you will continue to enjoy the same PAC-MAN Premium experience once you transfer your account to the unified, free version of PAC-MAN.”.Version: 6.5.4
Worked great on iPhone... not so much on iPadI cannot even get the game to load on my iPad. Keeps spinning... telling me it needs to update mazes so connect to WiFi. I AM ON WIFI! Plus, I have made purchases and played many mazes on the iPhone, why can’t it transfer to my iPad.? It’s a new iPad. My iPhone was damaged over the weekend and won’t power on. I was hoping I could use it on iPad, but it’s not successful... Update: Thank you to the developers and their team. I appreciate the fix and the response. I am changing my stars!.Version: 6.5.6
The swipe & joystick feature 👎🏽I’m an OG when it comes to classic arcade games. I’m using this app on my iPhone 12 Max Pro. Every time I swipe or use the joystick it moves the screen to where it hides it and brings the top of the screen of the game down or up having us leave the game as if we are toggling from the active screen to another screen. Please fix this issue. Have us use a Bluetooth enabled gaming controller device so we can avoid it. Have the screen accommodate shifting the screen from portrait to landscape mode as if we are seated at a table arcade game. We could use our wireless controllers that have a joystick on it. All the rest is great as it’s a favorite of ours! TIA for your time and assistance..Version: 9.2.7
Worst Pac-Man EverYou think the Atari 2600 Pac-Man was bad? Then you haven’t played this abomination. The touch screen controls are abysmally imprecise and Pac-Man often goes in a different direction from the way you swipe. The maze designs are not only terrible, violating every tenet of good Pac-Man level design (full of dead ends, gimmicky levels themed around shapes and words that don’t allow for any natural flow of movement), but several of the level sets recycle mazes from others. And since the game is a micro transaction-filled nightmare like nearly everything on the App Store these days, it’s pushing you to bypass the very slow grind for coins and pay real money to unlock these dismal mazes... so they should at least all be original, right? Not in this game! There have been some improvements from previous versions, especially making all of arcade Pac-Man free and introducing the checkpoint system for it, but the game is still a broken, twitchy mess and a disgrace to the franchise..Version: 7.0.5
PAC manI like PAC Man a lot!! It is super fun to play with but there are 3 downs to it. The mazes are super fun but they cost coins and you run out pretty quickly so I think the mazes should be free to play. The swipe or joy stick is super delayed, which makes you lose much of the time. Some times when I swipe to the right it goes up and I die, so that should DEFINITELY be upgraded. Lastly, the ghosts should turn red when they are about to turn back after you eat a big pellet because when they are blinking sometimes I go to eat them and they turn back to a ghost but I never know when it’s gonna happen because although they are blinking there is no clear sign that they are going to turn back to normal at the exact moment. 💗💗💗.Version: 6.6.3
Good but.....So i started playing the game and i saw that i had to buy levels but you only get three coins in return for easy so maybe the value of what it gives you back should get bigger and bigger each level and maybe drop the value of the levels so that i dont take two days to buy one level(that was not a joke)and also plz fix the thing that helps you get a free coin in the shop because i tried using it and wasted 30 or more seconds on a video that shows you something you dont want to play and forces you to,and what i got in return is a message saying”sorry but this doesnt work wait for a further update!So PLZ fix that and my other issue!.Version: 9.2.0
Some frustrations since updateI had some issues with the previous version but they were quick to fix the problems when they happened. I feel as though this version frustrates me more, I was so excited thinking that some of the things would be fixed but now it’s annoying to play since the toggle disappeared and you only get one way to direct Pac-Man. When I slide my finger up or down it goes right or left. :( and the ghost eats me. I like that you can pick and choose your tournaments based on how much energy you have. But the “toggle” needs work and it’s one reason I don’t play as much. :( Will change review once things have been adjusted..Version: 7.0.3
So many glitches in the new versionThe newest update has so many things wrong with the app: For Pac-Missions, it shows "claim" button next to missions that haven't been completed, then when you click on "claim", it says "unexpected error!" Then the app freezes and the only way to get it to stop is to close it and restart. For My Mazes, the high score changes to whatever the score was from the most recent completed level, no matter if it past the previous high score or not. Before, the high score was shown as the same for all levels. But I think it should be each level shows its own high score. And the gameplay controls have gone on the fritz. So many times, Pac-Man just changes direction without me swiping or doesn't change when I do swipe..Version: 9.0.2
Pac-man for you pocket!I mean, let’s face it, this is pure unadulterated pac-man! It’s the good old pac-man we all love from the arcade, plus new mazes for players to try out some of which offer quite the challenge(as far as pac-man goes at least). If I had to give some complaints though it’s the fact that the touch controls are not ideal compared to a joystick. However I will say that’s one minor problem that’s somewhat easy to overlook(until it messes up a good run) for a fun,classic game of pac-man!.Version: 7.1.9
Go PAC-MAN!My mom said she grew up with PAC-MAN being her favorite game when she was younger. Ever since then, at the arcades like “Dave and Busters” PAC-MAN has been my favorite too. This online digital game is a perfect make over of the old-style popular game we all used to love. The different levels make it even more special, with cool titles like “Sushi” “Sugar Rush” and “Dino”. You get coins all the time, so it’s easy to get the payed levels. I love this game! My only question is, though it’s not a complaint, why do you have to be an adult to play? My daughter loves PAC-MAN and wants this game on her iPad. I know you can get the younger one, but Regis one seems kid friendly. No complaints here, but just wondering. My daughter has already downloaded the other one, but why not this one too? Anyway, this game is amazing. Can’t wait for more cool levels to come out! 😄❤️.Version: 7.0.3
PAC-MAN is awesome!!!I love Pac-Man because it is just an awesome game it is fair and competitive. I makes you very frustrated and very very focused. And the way you unlock stuff makes you want to do it not just need to. You can maybe make another game where you need to eat more pac-dots than the ghost and there is a rare chance for the ghost to not kill you and also make where you can unlock different skins like Pac-Girl or Pac-Pet and for Pac-Man he can have different clothes and Pac-Girl can have different clothes to so Pac-Pet can have different animal types and clothes to and please include a Turtle 🐢 it’s just my favorite animal:). I just think PAC-Man is a whole new world 🌎 for everyone:)..Version: 7.1.0
Great, but not perfectThis game is great! It has many features other than the original Pac-Man but it still has the classic! There are ways to earn coins, different modes, and all sorts of other things! I do wish it wasn’t so advanced though. All I wanted was the classical Pac-Man but instead I got all kinds of different kinds, which I don’t mind at all. Some of them are fun. Some of it is laggy but maybe that’s just my phone. There’s special deals and events which adds some fun too. Don’t forget the tournaments too! Those seem like fun. This game is good, I would recommend it if you want some Pac-Man but also want to play different things..Version: 7.1.2
Could be betterI would have rated higher, except it is time consuming to get coins. The challenges can be fun, unless you get 4 that all take place on mazes you do not have yet, which is where I am usually every day these days. This game is fun, but they push the coin aspect hoping to get people to buy coins to keep playing. I only play a few times a day, just to get a few coins and then done u til the next, where I would love to play constantly, except I refuse to buy coins. Update: game doesn’t let me play now. I get a box asking to agree to EULA, and then nothing. Been this way since the update. Oh well, guess I’ll uninstall it now, since it’s unplayable.Version: 9.0.2
Fun gameOK, when I first downloaded this game, it was so much fun! There are so many stages, levels and challenges. It’s pretty good. But I now have to rate this a game about 3 1/2 stars because the ads aren’t working. I have lost out on so many potential coins that it’s ridiculous. Being able to watch those ads enabled me to double the amount of coins that I could get. But now every single time the opportunity to watch an ad comes up, it tells me that ads aren’t available and being able to use those ads in the beginning was really awesome to increase the amount of coins that I could rack up. Now that that option is not working, I have not been able to get coins like I used to. Please fix this! Other than that this game is really fun and I highly recommend it..Version: 7.3.1
Free International Money Transfer 💸Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!Version: 9.3.0
JudgeI played the iPhone version of pac man 8 years ago, I decided to redownload it today because I was bored and oh BOY has it changed. For starters they have added new levels, which is good! But they have also added IAPS, which isn’t great. Even still, it’s defiantly pac man, the original level is free and there are high scores and everything. Though this app had changed, it’s still pac man..Version: 6.6.3
...I was so annoyed that I was able to play it just because I was under the age limit you shouldn’t even put a 2 to 12 age limit on there it’s ridiculous if it’s under the age limit and don’t put it if people to click because it is and if people have downloaded it that means they want to play the game it doesn’t matter if they fake their age..Version: 7.0.3
WonderfulMy mum loves this game a lot and so do I it’s great and challenging and that’s why it so fun it did not take long for me to learn the rules I say them because I think they are the rules 1 try not to get eaten by the monster things 2 eat all the dots 3 stay away from the monster things 4 get big dots as a power up to make the monster things not hurt you I think these are the rules but I’m not really sure but there defiantly are monsters that try to eat you.Version: 8.0.3
Was my favourite gameBefore the recent update this was easily my favourite game!! Now it’s full of ads!! I know you need to have advertisements to make $$ but this is ridiculous!!!.Version: 7.0.3
Worth the app to downloadIt doesn't have the classic maze version, it has different versions of maze. But if you wan't to unlock different maze version you have to get PAC coins to unlock different maze version..Version: 6.4.5
It’s not letting me in the gameIt’s letting me in the game but not in any mazes all that comes up is a loading screen.Version: 9.2.5
Love itThese are one of my favourite games ever. I love there classic mode they have it really gives it a realistic picture of what it was like in the 80s ( apart from no joy stick ).Version: 7.1.5
Wow!This is the best arcade game in the world! Although I still have another game at the top BUT THAT IS NOT THE POINT! This game blew my mind off when I first played it. Namico team, great effort. I would also like to give you an idea for pac-man. A new skin. I was thinking, maybe put red outlining the outside of pac-man then blue in the inside of pac-man then yellow outlining Pac-Man’s mouth. This is just an idea. I was also thinking that maybe you could create a city maze. And people could be added. Really, GREAT EFFORT SO FAR! Your sincerely, William Miller.Version: 7.0.6
Can you please make it work with iOS 9I have this iPod touch 5th gen and its on iOS 9 can you please make it work with iOS 9.Version: 7.1.6
PAC-MANGood game but I can’t play it, because it crashes always by displaying a message: Unexpected error! Please try again later. Deleted it and downloaded it again at least 8 times and it doesn’t solve the issues. So by giving youse 1 star is too much. UNPROFESSIONAL AND LOSERS until you fix the issues..Version: 6.6.3
AmazingThe only thing better is the arcade version bc nothin beats the original but all round it is a really good game.Version: 7.3.5
0 stars for an app that won’t load.I have just installed the app/game on my brand new iPad 7 Generation for the very first time and it is requesting for an update when there isn’t one. I can’t get the game to start without this non existent update..Version: 8.0.3
Joystick control is awfulYou can only tap the direction you want the joystick to move in, you can’t hold your finger on the screen and move it to move the joystick. Worst control option ever. Still disappointed that I have to deal with micro transactions after buying the premium version of PAC-MAN multiple times in the past..Version: 7.0.6
It won’t let me play the gameI verified my age 13-15 and then it said sorry you can not play the app if you are looking for wreak it wralf content check it out down below.Version: 7.0.3
Overall goodI like the game but there are too many bugs that need to be fixed. The app often crashes which gets to be annoying. Please fix this ASAP..Version: 8.0.3
Classic should be free!Would prefer classic pack man to be a free thing. Would be awesome if people challenged each other for the highest score in the classic game instead of all these random maps, still fun though!.Version: 6.6.3
Just a pac fan butU see bein 14 yrs old and liking pacman i had to FAKE MY AGE TO BE ABLE TO PLAY UGH I LUV PACMAN cuz im into retro (meaning old but cool ) video games UGH -_- WHY WOULD U STOP ATLEAST STOP TEENAGERS OR YOUNGER VEIWERS PLAYING UR GAME THERES NOTHING INNOPROPRIATE THE ONLY BAD THING IS ms pac mans cover art........ but thats a completely different game ugh why would u keep this away from ppl my age i had to pretend to be an adult to get passed ur system and play the game now if u excuse ima play pac man cuz i luv it yet not its creators -_-.Version: 7.0.3
Used to love it, but latest update has turned it into advertising nightmare.I originally got the game as it vaguely reminded me of the arcade game my brother and I used to play for hours when we were. I overlooked the bugs and conflicting tasks (i.e. eat 20 powerpoints in the sushi maze, which has none) and had some fun. The latest update is one step too far. Will delete soon..Version: 7.0.3
Great but...In the App Store it says that the game is 4 and over yet when you say you are even above fourteen it still does not let you play, therefore causing many people to fake our age I would please love you to check this out as their is absolutely nothing wrong with this game especially for pac man being aimed at kids many years ago.Version: 7.0.6
What’s wrong with age?I don’t know why but if your under 12 you can not play this game and I find unfair for me and other kids because it’s a kids game!.Version: 7.1.2
Curse of maze reward screenI was a very happy player until.. every time I open game a maze reward screen appears and I can’t get past it. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling game. Still happens. Driving me crazy!.Version: 8.0.3
Now terribleI had to reinstall the app game because it had locked me out after I had been playing for several years. I come back to all of my progress gone including all of my IAP mazes gone. I restored my purchases but this didn’t seem to do anything. Pac-Man was my childhood and this app pretty much ruined it..Version: 7.1.5
AmazingThis game is one of the best games you could get I did not know I liked PAC man until my brother got the game a few weeks ago and I tried it out so I got the game to it is so good that I'm on my iPad almost all day 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😐😐😀😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😆😆😆😃😃😀😄😅☺️🙂😇😊🙃😌😉😗😘😍😙😚😋😋😛😝😜🤑🤗🤓😎🤠.Version: 7.0.5
Really good game butI try and load into pac-man and im stuck on the loading screen please fix this..Version: 9.2.7
CANT ENTER GAME PLEASE FIXWhen I try to enter the game it says I have to update newest version from store however I do have the recent update and the game it’s not working. Please fix it soon I love this game so much but it’s not working anymore.Version: 8.0.3
Very disappointedDisappear coins, I haven’t waited five hours for a coin I’ve waited five days and haven’t got a coin. Then it says unexpected error please try again later when I’m trying to play it doesn’t allow you to play. Also Pac man at times makes decisions on its own to move left or right or up down..Version: 6.6.3
Hasn’t worked for monthsAnd I wish I knew why. I don’t want to risk uninstalling it in case I lose everything. Anyway, total bummer..Version: 9.0.4
PAC-MANI LOOOOOVE this game!!! as a kid, Pac-Man was my fav game, this ones pretty close to the original I played!! I can’t put my phone down😂😂Thanks for this game:))!!.Version: 8.0.3
Good but to many bugsHi namco Pac-Mans 40 ani is the but there’s too many bugs. I can’t get in to the game and I’ve been reading the reviews and some people can’t open the safes Please fix these bugs and issues.Version: 9.2.4
Awful flashy rubbish filled appI downloaded this ages back and it was simple. It was just pac man. Now I’ve revisited it and it’s turned into a rubbish wasteland of flashy bling and one of those horrible gamified UIs where it’s a task in itself just to work through to play the game I *actually* wanted..Version: 6.6.3
Also Very Great! But a bugBANDAI NAMCO, please fix this bug because if i died when pacman melts down his melt is WAY TOK FAST please fix this, thanks you..Version: 9.0.4
Re-energising a ClassicThis app is great! It provides a fun new way to play PAC-MAN keeping true to the original games from decades ago. The special levels and challenges are fun and interesting, and he game holds your attention and can be played anytime. Kept this game over Subway Surfers, Crossy Road, etc because it is always fun to play and a timeless classic..Version: 7.0.5
Fair retro copyThis game takes me back to my youth but, seriously has issues with sensitivity in which direction to go to avoid ghost’s path (unless you know the patterns) is a major concern. I would rate this higher if I didn’t have the above concern. Also I have noticed that my iPad heats up a lot if I play this for more than 10 minutes..Version: 7.1.0
Can’t get 3 crowns despite completing 3 mazes!Despite completing all the stages in the following mazes (Anaconda, Girl & Play), the game has not awarded me my crowns. Please fix this glitch in the game... I have used many tokens to complete these mazes..Version: 6.6.3
Annoying, unnecessary, badI’m giving this 1 star because you need to pay 8 dollars to be able to pay more than one round. I got all the dots in one life but couldn’t play anymore cause I said “to unlock = $7.99. This was so annoying cause it’s the only classic Pac-Man yet I can’t even play it!!!!!.Version: 6.6.3
Fun 9 times out of 10Sliding to move PacMan can feel tedious at times when he doesn’t move were you slide your finger, but otherwise an enjoyable game.Version: 6.6.3
TerribleWorst version yet. Can only play the level you have unlocked and takes ages to get the coins to unlock them. Had the same missions for month. (Play level two) can only complete that if I pay for the game. Pretty sad bad development and poor pricing..Version: 6.6.3
Ads are the worstDownloaded, got the grand tour - hey, different levels, cool! Finished the first one in about fifteen seconds, then it tells me “hey great, want to watch an ad? No? Okay, what if we ask a second time? No? Well, what if we just show you one anyway, and make it unskippable?” And friends, that’s when I uninstalled the game..Version: 7.2.9
Wasn’t able to play without giving informationIt wouldn’t let me play the game without agreeing to let them access my divices information to “improve gameplay quality”. Why can’t there just be an easily accessible pac-man game..Version: 6.6.3
Good game but not like the originalGood game but hard to find the original version inside this. And it’s designed to take info from your phone for advertising. The 8bit original never did that!.Version: 9.2.5
RecommendationsI ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME, but u should be able to to do quests without waiting 5 hours just to get tokens for more levels of PAC-MAN. Also in classic PAC-MAN u should be able to do all the levels instead of just one and wasting tokens to do more levels. Please consider these suggestions because it’s really annoying waiting for quests!.Version: 6.6.3
GoodIt’s so good you can get different mazes and stuff but I would love it if you could have 3 lives instead of three even if you could choose or something but overall it’s a really fun game 👍🏼.Version: 6.6.3
It is greatI love the games so much it is very popular and world wide known. The only bad contrivance is is when you play the game for a long time it is very humdrum. Maybe add a cool 😎 rule to it or make it a bit more professional🏋🏿♀️🤼♂️🤼♂️🏄🏿♂️🤽♂️. Then you will see these stats going up by 1 and ascending to five. At 5he moment you just move a character away from ghosts to get coins and you can eat the ghosts when they turn blue. Then I will find you being it very accentuated..Version: 7.0.3
PAC ManI absolutely love this game, especially when I was younger my brother n I use to challenge each other, as he had an electronic device back in 79-86 probably still has it. A reminder of what He was surprised with, n me, books!!!!!!.Version: 6.6.3
Best Game ever but with problemPac man is a great game and that’s good for me because you guys at Namco make pac man the most iconic video game character of the early 1980s, and since this app was released I had fun! It was enjoyable, it had retro graphics, but every time every time I died on classic mode and just tried to get my reward after it ended, I could not get my reward, so I was just like left inside The screen because I could not Open the safe, if this is the bug, please fix this 😄 Update: when I played the game, I realise that you can get your reward after you quit the game and Save a checkpoint. But still, this is still a bug, I know this is a mistake but please fix it 👍.Version: 7.2.3
Very fun game but there is just one problem!I have a lot of fun when playing this game, but I do want to share a problem I want to bring up, you need Internet for this game, can you make a update when you don’t have to need Wi-Fi for this game, say for example I want to take this to the bus or something and I have no Wi-Fi on me. Can you guys please make this game not on Wi-Fi please, I would appreciate it very much 😊.Version: 7.0.5
Awesome!!I honestly think that Pacman is absolutely the most AWES😍ME game ever!! I think this game is so addictive and is a really good game to pass the time. My only complaint is that the ghosts are WAY too fast, and it's really hard to get past them.😥 But despite that, the game is AWES😃ME!!.Version: 6.4.7
It's good but with a problemHi I love this game it's a good game but I find that when ever I swipe down my screen goes down and it's really anoing so I tried the joystick and it douse not work it's just goses to the left and says like that it douse not move pleases fix there isues so I can play again.Version: 9.2.4
Sooooooooo gooooooood!!!!!!!!Pac-man is sooo good! I love that you’ve added more interesting levels. My favourite level is the sushi one because sushi is my favourite food. I’m very happy that I don’t have any problems so I’m hoping that pac-man will have an update because I want to see even more interesting levels..Version: 7.0.3
New update 👎A perfectly functional and attractive game has been changed to look less professional, more clunky, and more glitchy. Was it even tested before release?.Version: 7.0.3
