Pacman Adventure, December 2023.
Are you a fan of Pacman games but want to test something a bit different from the classic game? Pacman Adventure is just that. The game progresses as a series of levels you have to play and beat and uses the classic rules.
What differentiates it is how you move Pac-Man. Unlike other Pac-Man games where he is responsive, in Pacman Adventure, your movement is more sluggish, you have to press the arrows keys just as you’re making the turn, and at times you might even miss a turn if you’re not precise.
Keep calm and plan your movements
As already mentioned, Pacman Adventure is challenging because you have to be very precise with your movements. If you don’t press the arrow key just at the right time to turn, you’re going to either keep moving forward or turn into a wall, stop, and maybe die to a ghost.
In Pacman Adventure, the ghosts move a bit differently compared to other Pac-Man games. They don’t use the preset movements they normally have, instead opting for unpredictability in the way turn. While this can be a major advantage, as you can trick them so that they move in another direction and not follow you, you could also fall into a trap by accident and lose a life as a result.
Your goal is to collect all the pellets in a level to progress to the next one. There are 244 in total, with 4 of them being power-ups. In Pacman Adventure, these power-ups are easy to differentiate, as they use heart shapes rather than bigger pellets. When you take one of these power-ups, you can eat the ghosts and return them to the center for a few seconds.
