Pac-Man has a match-3 party on the iPhone, iPod Touch

Namco Bandai is celebrating Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary by releasing a game for the iPhone/iPod touch that’s absolutely nothing like the original!

Pac-Match Party
is a match-3 puzzle game where players will match things (three of them) in order to have Pac-Man chomp through a maze to escape ghosts. A similar version of the game has also been released as a Flash game, which you can play here. But not on your iPhone, because Apple and Adobe are in a fight or something.

The game will run you $1.99 and features 30 levels, with an iPad version coming later.
