From the Manufacturer
Still true to his puzzle roots, Pac-Man unlocks the secrets of Ghost Island though switches, treasure chests, and locked doors. Each locked door hides a switch or a valuable. To unlock the door, Pac-Man must find and chomp a corresponding item, usually a piece of fruit. From there, the switches activate different paths for Pac-Man to take or bonuses to grab.
The man in yellow adapts well to his new 3D environment. He focuses more on platform jumping than consuming massive amounts of pellets. But never fear, there's plenty of chomping to be had.

Now, right off the bat, I'd feel like I'm overrating the game. There were so many levels missing from the Playstation original. The mazes and the Pac-Man arcade game (Actually, why should you care about that if Pac-Man has been ported to every system known to man?) were also gone. This is probably where you'd start asking why I would recommend this game if several things are missing. Well, the game is still fun and I really enjoy playing it.
Still images that are kinda animated replace the CGI cutscenes of the original, probably due to the limited cartridge space (Then again, think about the Game Boy Advance Video series). There are 12 levels in the game. I understand the GBA has limits, but I find this to be a bit ridiculous. The system isn't THAT limited...
The graphics are pretty impressive. However, you might jump to a platform and miss. Not because of a glitch, but because you aren't in the same distance as the platform. That can confuse a person at times, but at least you'll get the hang of it afterward.
The sound is great too, but the music isn't as extended as in the original game, so there might be a rhythm or two missing.
The gameplay is obviously the best part of the entire game. It is completely identical to the Playstation game. The butt-bouncing, Pac-dot explosions, and fruit doors are all there.Read more ›
