“Many fans remember when PAC-MAN went 3D, adding a whole new dimension to the signature fun game play and whimsical world that he represents, and we’re bringing that experience to this generation of gaming with PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC,” said Susan Tran, Senior Director, Brand Development for PAC-MAN at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is classic and fun platformer action with a PAC-MAN twist, with our hero chomping his way through colorful levels filled with a variety of chills and thrills as he chases the Ghosts to rescue his kidnapped family.”
PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC takes advantage of current gaming hardware to deliver a HD enhanced full screen version of the original game as well as improvements for more intuitive game play. The game has multiple modes with Quest Mode, a Maze Mode that brings classic PAC-MAN game play to 3D mazes, and a complete version of the original game in Original Mode that players can unlock by completing the main game. In the main Quest Mode experience, players use a variety of attacks and abilities, including powerups, as they run, jump, solve puzzles, and of-course chomp their way through six exciting worlds of Ghost Island. PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC brings back a wonderfully original world of adventure for PAC-MAN, where our hero is now chasing the Ghosts to rescue PAC-MOM, PAC-BOY, PAC-SIS, Professor PAC, PAC-BUDDY, and Pooka from their clutches only to discover a new nemesis in the dreaded TOC-MAN.
