Multi-player Pac-man mobile

Posted by Admin on December 8, 2008

If you love chomping little dots, eating power pellets and avoiding ghosts, then this news is for you. Alternatively, if you prefer to be a ghost, chasing little yellow men around, this is for you also.

Namco Bandai Networks Europe, the publisher of the mobile version of Pac-man has released a multi-player version of the game. Players can use Bluetooth-enabled handsets to connect up to four players and play against friends. You can choose to be either Pac-man or one of the ghosts after him.

The game is still good fun if you want to play on your own. A pause and resume function has been added meaning you can stop anywhere and pick it up later (something which should be on every mobile game, as snacking on them is the whole point – but I’ve already had a rant about the mobile games industry). Namco has also added online high-score rankings.
