PAC-MAN Championship Edition, the latest in PAC-MAN's pellet-eating adventures, amps up everything the classic franchise is known for without abandoning any of the charms that defined it as a three-decade Arcade staple.
Boasting six game modes with unique mazes and time-limits, PAC-MAN Championship Edition fuses dynamically changing mazes and dazzling visual effects with a new time-based gameplay system. As in the original PAC-MAN game, PAC-MAN must eat all pellets whilst avoiding Ghosts.
