Mobile title available for pre-registration
A little over a month ago, we reported on Bandai Namco’s Pac-Man Geo, a new mobile spin on the classic coin-op that will use world maps to create unique mazes for Pac-Man and his pals. Well, it seems the hungry fella is getting set to gobble, as Pac-Man Geo is now available for pre-registration on iOS and Android.
Utilising mobile geographical information, Pac-Man Geo allows players to create a pill-filled maze out of almost any location they can think of, from New York’s Times Square, to Paris’ Arc de Triomphe, even the criss-cross streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya district. Chased down by Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde, Pac-Man will munch his way through your local high street, picking up bonus items at famous landmarks while staying one bite ahead of his ghostly pursuers.
Limited-time Tour Mode events will see players challenge each other for the highest score within some of the world’s most popular locations, while Map Mode will allow users to share their favourite locations with other globe-trotting players. Pac-Man Geo looks to be a neat new take on the franchise, yet another way that Pac-Man has managed to redesign its timeless gameplay for entirely new audiences and formats.
