Classic games are brought back to life on the Game Boy Advance with Namco's release of Pac-Man Collection. Players can once again guide the round and yellow hero through levels of ever-increasing difficulty, on a mission to eat all of the pellets and gobble as many ghosts and fruits as he can.
Included is the very first Pac-Man game, complete with original sound effects, and two variations on this arcade classic: Pac-Mania and Pac-Man Arrangement (never before released). Pac-Mania adds a 3D twist to the action, with larger levels and more ghosts. This time, however, Pac-Man can jump into the air, soaring over ghosts.
In Pac-Man Arrangement, the original Pac-Man game has been twisted and beefed up with new and detailed 3D graphics and faster and smarter ghosts with new abilities. Pac-Man can use dashing pads to soar across the overhead view screen, and jump between portals, landing on the other site of the screen.
Pac-Attack, the fourth game in the collection, is a puzzle game similar to Tetris. However, ghosts drop down amidst the pieces and a Pac-Man piece must be used to gobble up the ghosts, clearing space and adding bonus points. The game features a regular play mode as well as a Puzzle mode, featuring 100 different puzzles that get more difficult with each completion. ~ Jay Semerad, All Game Guide
