    It's impossible to think of the 80s without arcade games and PAC-MAN. This modern-day recreation is perhaps the most faithful to the original.

    If you grew up in the 1980s, the chances are pretty low that you've never played PAC-MAN. In fact, this could easily be the game that will catapult you back into the time of your childhood.

    There's nothing more frustrating than a game that absolutely demands you should connect when you're out camping, 50 miles from the nearest hotspot. A classic from the 1980s, the remake of PAC-MAN remains faithful to its original premise, without the need for constant updates.

    This is a great game! PAC-MAN is the best video game of all time, but to add a story mode, skins, many different mazes, and objectives into a game that was already a masterpiece was an amazing choice! However, I use handheld devices like the PAC-MAN Pocket Player more than this game. Not the best verision of PAC-MAN, but much better than Ms. PAC-MAN!

    To be honest there is not much to say. This game takes us all back into the past where gaming started out. But this version of the game of awesome it has all kinds of mazes and difficulties as well witch to me gives mobile gamers like me to get a look at the game your about to play. The game itself is awesome and I believe this game can make Editors Choice on App Store. To be honest I play Fortnite and PUBG mobile and they are boring compared to what game this is. I mean who hates good old retro gaming it brings memories back. For people who give this game a 1 star ya better think again or are you a real retro gamer. For all adults or kids who knows about retro gaming and history of gaming ya know what I’m talking about. We have all have had some history with PAC Man before this game but this is probably as far as a modern PAC Man can go. Once again it’s not one of those pay to win games. For instance Roblox is a big pay to win game and it’s stealing people’s money but this game is the opposite of that and that’s why this game and Bandai Namco deserve awesome awards for this game. Thank you for your attention and PAC Man lovers continue with this game it is an awesome and mostly all around best retro game. Thank You:)

    Until a couple of days ago I would have given it a higher rating. However, bonus level 44 glitches out before you run out of time it pops up and says you've run out of time. So I've been stuck on it for two days because it is a game glitch. And it is sadly making me debate if I should delete it. Other than that it All around has a great game play and graphics.

    I love playing this game, but this is the buggiest app I've ever had. I feel like they make it worse with each update. And this has been over the course of multiple phones, so it's always awful. The newest one I've experienced is now, half the time the ghosts are invisible so you have to force quit and reopen so you can see them. I have to force quit constantly because there's always something. Half the time you can't restart the game unless you quit. And they got rid of the daily challenges.

  • Great game! May 1, 2018

    By Tygerlily2014
    I love this game. I love the fact that it never gets boring like traditional pac man can because there are constant challenges and new levels to play all the time. My only complaint is that it takes quite a while before you have enough coins to buy a new difficult level. One suggestion also is to be able to “skip” a challenge for a time/coin fee. I currently have a quest to earn 100,000 points in one game and Im no where near getting that. Also, if anyone can provide me with some info on how the “Don’t Eat Ghosts” challenges work, that would be great. I’ve got a quest to beat level 5 in the I Know maze without eating ghosts and I have several times without the quest being checked off. I can’t figure out if you need to not eat ghosts through the whole game (which is nearly impossible) or maybe do you need to beat the whole maze and not eat the ghosts on that level. Either way, I can’t get rid of it. Help would be appreciated 😊
  • Tokens Apr 6, 2018

    By kriskris2017
    I just downloaded this game two days ago and already see that the tokens are going to be an issue. It stops you from advancing even in the game itself. Once you stop the game, it gives you a time limit to earn one token at a time completing tasks before you can unlock the next level which is frustrating when you have an allotted amount of time to play. (Like during your lunch or a break in the day). Especially because you can’t complete these tasks until time has elapsed. For example you cannot complete task #1 until 15 hours has passed. Or you cannot try this task again for another two hours. So frustrating will probably have to delete this game because I cannot play it out will. #Sad
  • Go PAC-MAN! Oct 14, 2018

    By HP Fan 💕
    My mom said she grew up with PAC-MAN being her favorite game when she was younger. Ever since then, at the arcades like “Dave and Busters” PAC-MAN has been my favorite too. This online digital game is a perfect make over of the old-style popular game we all used to love. The different levels make it even more special, with cool titles like “Sushi” “Sugar Rush” and “Dino”. You get coins all the time, so it’s easy to get the payed levels. I love this game! My only question is, though it’s not a complaint, why do you have to be an adult to play? My daughter loves PAC-MAN and wants this game on her iPad. I know you can get the younger one, but Regis one seems kid friendly. No complaints here, but just wondering. My daughter has already downloaded the other one, but why not this one too? Anyway, this game is amazing. Can’t wait for more cool levels to come out! 😄❤️

  • Used to be good but they ruined it. No mfi controller support anymore. Nov 20, 2018

    By Coasterbuf
    So I used to play this game daily. I loved it. It was near perfect and a 5 star game for me. Now it’s a one star. Why? Read on: When this game first came out, I found the on screen sliding controls were just horrible but that was okay as I bought a mfi Nimbus game controller to work with both my ipad and Apple TV. But mainly bought for this game. It worked great that way. Then for some strange reason in late summer/early fall 2018 they decided to rewrite the app in some way and strangely removed mfi controller support even though such support is still listed in the app description. Why? Who knows...they never answer that question. I got excited when I saw an update with “joystick” support, but that was merely a horrible on screen joystick, not support for a hardware controller they once had. So now the game is once again horrible to me and their customer support is equally horrible. They literally do not respond to my support tickets asking why this was removed and when will it be back considering it is still listed on app description. So I am done with this game until they put back hardware controller support that never should have been removed in the first place. RE: that developer response: why would support respond to me now when they didn’t the first two times? That is a DEAD END that goes nowhere.

  • “Give me more money for my 40 year old game you already bought from me” Mar 19, 2018

    By unhappy_app_customer
    Paid $4.99 each for iPhone and iPad versions of PAC-MAN Premium. Now they don’t work because PAC-MAN “needs to update his mazes”. It’s been the same maze since 1980, buddy. This new version promises I will continue to enjoy the “same PAC-MAN Premium experience” but now with ads, apparently. “Why did Pac-Man Premium close and why? The reason the game closed is because we wanted to create a better and more engaging experience for all our PAC-MANiacs, as such, we decided it was time to focus our efforts on a single, unified PAC-MAN version. This was not an easy decision, but with your continued support, we hope to build the best PAC-MAN game. As you might expect, these new and exciting plans came with a downside and unfortunately, the PAC-MAN Premium version was removed from the Apple App Store on January 15th, 2018. On the same date, January 15th, the game servers were shut down. After this date, players only had access to limited features that were available for offline play. We strongly recommend (if you haven't done so already) that you transfer your Premium account to the other PAC-MAN version, which can be downloaded for free here: Download PAC-MAN, as soon as possible. As a Premium user, you will continue to enjoy the same PAC-MAN Premium experience once you transfer your account to the unified, free version of PAC-MAN.”
  • Worst Pac-Man Ever Nov 17, 2018

    By FJ Thomas
    You think the Atari 2600 Pac-Man was bad? Then you haven’t played this abomination. The touch screen controls are abysmally imprecise and Pac-Man often goes in a different direction from the way you swipe. The maze designs are not only terrible, violating every tenet of good Pac-Man level design (full of dead ends, gimmicky levels themed around shapes and words that don’t allow for any natural flow of movement), but several of the level sets recycle mazes from others. And since the game is a micro transaction-filled nightmare like nearly everything on the App Store these days, it’s pushing you to bypass the very slow grind for coins and pay real money to unlock these dismal mazes... so they should at least all be original, right? Not in this game! There have been some improvements from previous versions, especially making all of arcade Pac-Man free and introducing the checkpoint system for it, but the game is still a broken, twitchy mess and a disgrace to the franchise.
  • Give me stressless Pac-Man! Apr 22, 2020

    By grmaclu
    I have so many glitches in the new version, that eventually, THIS 62 year ole gal may have to decide NOT to reinstall the game, in my MANY attempts to reset the game (I have to uninstall and reinstall ), when it gets stuck in the chocolate challenge reward and allowed me to collect as many points as my heart desired, as long as I want to sit there and tap on my screen. Crazy thing is, it pops up randomly.... I don’t play the chocolate challenge to prompt the rewards for it!!!!Some challenge😒 FYI: the points are still waiting in my bank for you to take. And where the heck are my crowns???? Come on guys.... it’s covid season. I work on the front lines. You don’t owe me an thing, however my pac man is a huge part of my downtime/decompress time!! I love my Pac-Man, and would settle for the old version if you can’t fix my game, make my challenges work, and tell me if there are new guidelines to collecting the darn crowns!!!! Please don’t harm my Pac-Man spirit!!!

    A lot of times the controls dont work yet the ghosts keep moving after you. This app sucks. It takes forever to load and I'm pretty sure its because of the ads. And the ads are unbearable. They force you to watch multiple ads and they removed the mute button so ur forced to hear them now too. Pacman is hard enough as it is without you screwing it up even more. Never again.

    Really loved this game until recent update to Story Mode and now even though I've unlocked the Classic Arcade version it isn't functioning properly and allowing me to start from my unlocked levels. Example: I've unlocked level 24 with the safe but when I start playing again I start at level 19. Very frustrating! Used to be a great stress reliever... Not anymore.
  • Aug 13, 2021

    By Chikwe Okwandu
    I understand that most of this is probably experimental, but I have a few things to complain about that I want to mention: 1)Locking the Classic mode and forcing us to play the Story mode in order to access it was a terrible choice and could easily turn off newcomers. 2)What on earth happened to the sprite direction?! The ghosts arent as expressive as they used to be, and Pac-Man's mouth doesn't cycle as fast as it use to either! 3)The menus are awkward to navigate and poorly optimized.
  • Stopped working May 13, 2020

    By Ex keeper
    March 28, 2020.....stopped working. Loads forever and eventually tells me to update. Removed the app (several times) and reloaded. No change. What did you all break? Also, like someone else mentioned, the newest version is not as user friendly than the previous version. Looks nicer but much harder to navigate May 13, 2020. Still no real fixing of the game. I’ve been collecting coins for the Chocolate tournament for weeks. Half the time I come into the game it just goes to a window for me to claim those Chocolate coins and is in a constant loop with that window with no way out but kill the game. On the times that I can actually get in to play, eventually the Chocolate window is back up and the fun times are quickly over. Right now there’s only one tournament to select from and that’s been for weeks. So totally frustrating for a game that used to run smooth with no problems.

    By Acdcgamer
    I’ve had the app before and it’s worked fine, the issue now is that with the 40th anniversary event gone. I finished it, and I see that I have the pac album complete, but the pac-trail doesn’t load up, it’s acting like it’s locked, but the account memory is supposed to be saved right? I did and completed the adventure mode within the limited time event on one IPad, but I won’t load up my rewards like the pac-trail on the other. I fear that I’ll loose the pac-trail if I try to remove the app from the other iPad for space. Could you guys please have a look and maybe make a patch for getting the pac trail and pac album across safely from one device to another for a single account on two devices please?

  • Great! but retirement pop-up adds are annoying Jul 15, 2020

    By GridironBeast23
    This game is GREAT. I mean, who doesn’t love pac man? You can play classic, colorful mazes, do tournaments, and complete daily challenges. However, I’ve only had it for a few days and I’ve started to notice that some of the adds that pop up after you’ve finished a game can’t be exited out of. I’ve had to close the app, reopen, and be forced to lose progress. If the developer sees this PLEASE FIX if you can it’s REALLY annoying and makes me not want to play at all. It’s really a shame it’s literally the most classic arcade game of all time.

    By henyskye💙
    I like PAC Man a lot!! It is super fun to play with but there are 3 downs to it. The mazes are super fun but they cost coins and you run out pretty quickly so I think the mazes should be free to play. The swipe or joy stick is super delayed, which makes you lose much of the time. Some times when I swipe to the right it goes up and I die, so that should DEFINITELY be upgraded. Lastly, the ghosts should turn red when they are about to turn back after you eat a big pellet because when they are blinking sometimes I go to eat them and they turn back to a ghost but I never know when it’s gonna happen because although they are blinking there is no clear sign that they are going to turn back to normal at the exact moment. 💗💗💗
  • More Levals Dec 25, 2018

    By Julie blumberg
    Hello I absolutely love this game. I would like it if there was more free levels as I just started playing. I love PacMan so more levels would be nice. I also wish there were some free elite levels and free challenging levels. If you could add this that would be nice. I personally think you should make a big update adding more levels and get rid of some of the classic stages. Just more levels would do good for the game. And more people might play. Other than that this is a good game so if this review gets posted when people browse seeing if they should get this game I think you should and this is overall a great game. Thanks P.S The original review was posted by my son.

    Shame the extra story mode levels in the update don't work, otherwise it would have got 5*.
  • Fun but not flawless May 27, 2018

    By Mehnaimehjeff
    It is a fun game, but it is not near as hard as the original. You move at about a third of the speed you would be moving at an arcade machine, therefore making the game kind of easy. I hope you can add a mode where you move at the original speed, because I love PAC-MAN and I would really like to have a more authentic gameplay. There is another bug on the IPod Touch where the joystick glitches out and leads you in random directions. The ghosts also can sometimes, but rarely, go through walls. I was trying to get to a power pellet, like most usually do, when a ghost pulled a very “Interesting” move. That was on the first level. Unacceptable. It is still fun and I love it though.
  • Return to Pac-Man! Apr 14, 2021

    By Jesman1
    I’m really enjoying having this on my phone and play it often. The game is very faithful to the original in scope. There’s many mazes to choose from which there’s different levels of difficulty as well. Very cool. Still favor a real joystick over swiping. I’m pretty adjusted and good at it but when things get faster swiping it can go the wrong way. And when you lift your finger off, pacman can go in an unintended direction for some reason. The ads get redundant and I try and click out of them when you can. Still, playing this on my phone has probably already saved me $500 in quarters. It’s challenging, fun, frustrating and a time killer! If your a retro Pac-Man arcade fan you’ll dig it.
  • Some frustrations since update Oct 24, 2018

    By Pink.Stars
    I had some issues with the previous version but they were quick to fix the problems when they happened. I feel as though this version frustrates me more, I was so excited thinking that some of the things would be fixed but now it’s annoying to play since the toggle disappeared and you only get one way to direct Pac-Man. When I slide my finger up or down it goes right or left. :( and the ghost eats me. I like that you can pick and choose your tournaments based on how much energy you have. But the “toggle” needs work and it’s one reason I don’t play as much. :( Will change review once things have been adjusted.

    Until a couple of days ago I would have given it a higher rating. However, bonus level 44 glitches out before you run out of time it pops up and says you've run out of time. So I've been stuck on it for two days because it is a game glitch. And it is sadly making me debate if I should delete it. Other than that it All around has a great game play and graphics.

    By Benjamin Wensinger
    I love playing this game, but this is the buggiest app I've ever had. I feel like they make it worse with each update. And this has been over the course of multiple phones, so it's always awful. The newest one I've experienced is now, half the time the ghosts are invisible so you have to force quit and reopen so you can see them. I have to force quit constantly because there's always something. Half the time you can't restart the game unless you quit. And they got rid of the daily challenges.
  • Very poor control of movement Jan 13, 2018

    By RocketRG
    The game and the boards themselves are great, but unfortunately, it’s impossible to simulate proper arcade joystick control of PAC-MAN by using swipe screen or button control. If you’re an expert Pac-Man player, you need to be able to move Pac-Man quickly and accurately. Without a manual joystick, on the harder levels, where you must move quickly, it becomes impossible to do that. In other words, when you swipe left, sometimes Pac-Man moves down or in another direction instead, and then you die. This happens every time the game doesn’t record your intended move correctly.... which for me is SEVERAL Times EVERY game. And swiping to make quick turns just does not work with the high degree of accuracy that you need to clear the expert (Elite) levels. If you try switching to button control, it’s not much better. Nothing can simulate a manual joystick.

    By Haziq Naim
    In my opinion, the story mode is great. It's just that everytime I finished the level, the game started to glitching out so I must say a simple word: fix this bug. However, the "story" mode doesn't even have a story, just you making Pac completing all the levels by avoiding ghosts but ok. I have to say that this story mode update is probably the most broken update ever. Hope the teams at Namco fix this. Great game. 🙂👍 If you want to play classic PacMan mode, you have to complete until 12 ig.

  • Please please let me save my progress Apr 4, 2021

    By aveholder
    Hello if you thinking about getting the app let me tell you something now this not going to be to long BUT this is how I feel about the app enjoy... Hello point number one... I don’t like how you can’t save ANY of your progress like if you got to stage 3 in classic (it’s the classic pac man it has that older feel) it won’t save it you if leave AND IT SUCKKSSS bc I do that I will get to the 6th stage and I will have to do something ( like feed my Dogs) and I will have to leave!!! This is my main and big problem with the app it’s really good apart form the whole save thing and idk what y’all talking about with the controls the touch screen is great and I use that fine and my screen is kinda bad well I said that this wouldn’t be long buttt here we are well thanks for reading!! -Avery h
  • Nausea or Nostalgia ? Sep 27, 2018

    By Roskolnikov
    I purchased the Premium/original PacMan for just that; I understand the drive (profit) to sell mazes and ‘tokens’ as well as the drive to have a unified app.... how about this.. 1. Don’t ask me to open a ticket (seems that this is your reply to any negative feedback and you know it is just to make most go away) 2. Give us an option in settings to turn everything but ‘classic’ Pac-Man off... while in classic mode, give us the option to turn it (the ‘new’ content) back on.... telling me my premium features are now free doesn’t undo the mess you have made of an iconic game. Developer suggests taking it outside of this forum... while I am complaining, swipe control... brings out the OS swipe from bottom menu a bit too much, maybe an option to disable this during play?

    Great Classic mode, great everything... Except, every now & then it'll glitch & not move Pac- Man much, where u wanna go!!! And now, in Story Mode, it gives a To Do list... And on level 58 of Story Mode, ya gotta use a fireball against 6 ghosts & swore I counted 6 & wasn't checked off! I'LL SLAUGHTER, SLAY, SLICE, SLASH, SAW UP, MAUL AND BUTCHER PAC-MAN HEADQUARTERS, UNLESS FIXED BY NOON ON 9/11/21.... I'M HERE, LET ME IN, RUN & Rest. In. Peace.....
  • Great game but needs better attention to bugs from the developers! Dec 16, 2020

    By Jennie36
    I don’t usually write reviews but I am this time because I’m fed up with this game crashing on me every time I go to play a tournament!!! It happened directly after the last update for the game (a week and a half ago). I’ve tried contacting support with a claim but I’ve yet to hear back from anyone! I used to play this game every day but I can’t now because it wants to stay stuck when I select a tournament to play in. It’s aggravating to not be able to play at all! I’m not sure what happened during the update and I wish I could fix it. If they would contact me back and let me know how to, I’d really appreciate it. I just want my app to work correctly! I gave it 3 stars until it gets resolved.
  • Do Not Like Game After New Update May 8, 2018

    By AlAngelMa
    I have been a big fan of pac man, since forever. My son got me hooked on this game. I used to take him to the arcades & we played till it closed. We always went home broke. I have a lot of health issues & stay home, very boring. My son added this game for me & I loved playing it. But after this new update about 1 month or so ago, it’s terrible !!!! Now they don’t give you any chance of extra plays like the other one. Some friends & I feel like this updated system is forcing you to buy if you want to continue playing. That’s Very Sad, because I know myself & others do not have money for that. But I do want to say ; “Thank You So Very Much” for letting me enjoy a little bit of time playing before the new update.....

    Been playing this on and off for 3 years. Just re-downloaded it a couple weeks ago. On lvl 25 the ghosts are invisible or something. I can't see them and die, eating up my lives.
  • Aug 13, 2021

    By Chikwe Okwandu
    I understand that most of this is probably experimental, but I have a few things to complain about that I want to mention: 1)Locking the Classic mode and forcing us to play the Story mode in order to access it was a terrible choice and could easily turn off newcomers. 2)What on earth happened to the sprite direction?! The ghosts arent as expressive as they used to be, and Pac-Man's mouth doesn't cycle as fast as it use to either! 3)The menus are awkward to navigate and poorly optimized.
  • Why update map selection screen? Mar 5, 2020

    By Rygel Fievel
    I’ve put up with having to scroll through a few pages of maps in mission mode but why did the developer decide that it was a good idea to change that in v8 so that you have to swipe through every map rather than an array of maps. And if you didn’t know if the map was in each of its skill level, you have to go through it again for each skill level. Is it so hard to implement this like in tournament mode so when you select the tournament, it automatically goes to the map? No more hunting down maps and just go directly to the mission. The fact this has been the behavior since the beginning is a big oversight and still not corrected. Fix this and I don’t care if you have to swipe multiple times before it moves on the next map.
  • Coin drought Nov 30, 2019

    By Oh So Much Fun
    The game is very fun, but coins are little hard to come across. They are without a doubt the most important aspect of the game considering you need many of them to buy new levels. Of course you get a few by beating new levels that you just bought but that is a very slow process. The missions barely help either because some missions will require you to eat ghosts or pellets from mazes that you haven’t even unlocked yet. The app apparently says that you can watch videos to change to new missions but they never work as the app always says that there are currently no offers available. It displays the same statement whenever you try to multiply your earned coin count. Please make your app experience better by making coins more easily accessible. Thank you.
  • Fix the controls Jul 23, 2021

    By DA Seibel
    As many other reviews have mentioned, the controls are poorly calibrated. I’m having fun with the game which is why it’s not one star. I don’t mind the new levels which depart from the 80s version that everyone is complaining about. The graphics are cool and it keeps the 80s charm. But man, these controls are BAD. The swipe misreads the gesture about 30% of the time which is unacceptable. This shouldn’t have even released without fixing that. Also, devs, if you hate yourselves and you want this game to die, please leave a canned response below telling me to follow a link and leave feedback elsewhere. Nothing says “we don’t care” quite like a brainless response that clearly shows that you didn’t read this.

    Problem number one the stages are terrible like none of them are the classic stage if you could give us the classic stage that would be nice really really nice but I’m just mad about what you’ve done Pac-Man is a great game but you decided cash grab. One of the only reasons that video game still exist you decide to just go and ruin it and your sayings on the boat fourth anniversary yeah if there was gonna be some broth anniversary of Pac-Man I don’t think I would choose this game Number to these motion controls are terrible you guys know what I mean by motion controls anyways one good thing I’m gonna say about this game to tell you why it’s a two star it actually looks pretty nice it has some good graphics and that’s about it
  • 40th Anniversary changes Jul 18, 2020

    By maklidty
    What a mess! Now two of the tournaments are missing, but you will get bonus coins if you play one of them. Good luck on that one. Having to go through each maze individually is ridiculous. Please either fix your 40th anniversary rollout or bring back the last version. So disappointing, especially now that we are all looking for diversions until life gets back to normal again. I’m playing in tournaments and am ranked in gold, silver or bronze, but another feature says I’m not ranked because I didn’t play. You can’t have it both ways. Please fix this. I’m playing the same way I did when everything was working properly.
  • Wading through ads & offers Oct 23, 2019

    By PajamaBoy Bedsheets
    All I want to do is play PAC-Man. You know the classic game people spent billions of quarters playing. Within this app, there is a pretty good copy of the original game. The problem is they infected this app with so many “offers” and ads and alternate game versions that you can play for money. It makes those looking for the original PAC-Man game wade through a river of crap to get to the game. I’d rather have them just charge a couple of bucks for the classic game so I can get rid of all of the other crap. The Ms. PAC-Man app is exactly what it should be. A more faithful representation of the original without all of the unneeded bloat added for a few dollars.
  • I love this classic but the recent update created problems Dec 24, 2018

    By Dark Ace360
    I’ve always enjoyed Pac-Man even when I was young and I got a kick out of this game when I found it. I played this game for quite a while using a Nimbus wireless controller because I cannot play this game with the touchpad it’s too wonky. I was playing the heck out of this game and had fun until the recent update came in. Now it seems to no longer except my Nimbus wireless controller, nor it seems like any wireless control support is in this game anymore please try and fix this problem if you can, otherwise I may have to give this game up and I don’t want to do that.
  • Fun, but a slightly glitchy money trap Jan 3, 2018

    By Crazyben71
    The pac man game is fun, but it forces the player to grind for days to unlock mazes. On the more expensive mazes (50 coins plus) it could take 2 weeks or more. It’s sad that this iconic franchise has stooped so low as to be another despicable money trap. Additionally, the game rewards users for consistently playing each day, but the highest reward, the seventh day, seems to be skipped over and the count is reset. Ultimately, I like the gameplay, but will delete it because I thoroughly do not enjoy the disgustingly underhanded trend of today’s games to make an extra buck. Good job, you’ve lost a two and a half decade fan.
  • Used to be good but they ruined it. No mfi controller support anymore. Nov 20, 2018

    By Coasterbuf
    So I used to play this game daily. I loved it. It was near perfect and a 5 star game for me. Now it’s a one star. Why? Read on: When this game first came out, I found the on screen sliding controls were just horrible but that was okay as I bought a mfi Nimbus game controller to work with both my ipad and Apple TV. But mainly bought for this game. It worked great that way. Then for some strange reason in late summer/early fall 2018 they decided to rewrite the app in some way and strangely removed mfi controller support even though such support is still listed in the app description. Why? Who knows...they never answer that question. I got excited when I saw an update with “joystick” support, but that was merely a horrible on screen joystick, not support for a hardware controller they once had. So now the game is once again horrible to me and their customer support is equally horrible. They literally do not respond to my support tickets asking why this was removed and when will it be back considering it is still listed on app description. So I am done with this game until they put back hardware controller support that never should have been removed in the first place. RE: that developer response: why would support respond to me now when they didn’t the first two times? That is a DEAD END that goes nowhere.

  • “Give me more money for my 40 year old game you already bought from me” Mar 19, 2018

    By unhappy_app_customer
    Paid $4.99 each for iPhone and iPad versions of PAC-MAN Premium. Now they don’t work because PAC-MAN “needs to update his mazes”. It’s been the same maze since 1980, buddy. This new version promises I will continue to enjoy the “same PAC-MAN Premium experience” but now with ads, apparently. “Why did Pac-Man Premium close and why? The reason the game closed is because we wanted to create a better and more engaging experience for all our PAC-MANiacs, as such, we decided it was time to focus our efforts on a single, unified PAC-MAN version. This was not an easy decision, but with your continued support, we hope to build the best PAC-MAN game. As you might expect, these new and exciting plans came with a downside and unfortunately, the PAC-MAN Premium version was removed from the Apple App Store on January 15th, 2018. On the same date, January 15th, the game servers were shut down. After this date, players only had access to limited features that were available for offline play. We strongly recommend (if you haven't done so already) that you transfer your Premium account to the other PAC-MAN version, which can be downloaded for free here: Download PAC-MAN, as soon as possible. As a Premium user, you will continue to enjoy the same PAC-MAN Premium experience once you transfer your account to the unified, free version of PAC-MAN.”
  • Worst Pac-Man Ever Nov 17, 2018

    By FJ Thomas
    You think the Atari 2600 Pac-Man was bad? Then you haven’t played this abomination. The touch screen controls are abysmally imprecise and Pac-Man often goes in a different direction from the way you swipe. The maze designs are not only terrible, violating every tenet of good Pac-Man level design (full of dead ends, gimmicky levels themed around shapes and words that don’t allow for any natural flow of movement), but several of the level sets recycle mazes from others. And since the game is a micro transaction-filled nightmare like nearly everything on the App Store these days, it’s pushing you to bypass the very slow grind for coins and pay real money to unlock these dismal mazes... so they should at least all be original, right? Not in this game! There have been some improvements from previous versions, especially making all of arcade Pac-Man free and introducing the checkpoint system for it, but the game is still a broken, twitchy mess and a disgrace to the franchise.
  • Give me stressless Pac-Man! Apr 22, 2020

    By grmaclu
    I have so many glitches in the new version, that eventually, THIS 62 year ole gal may have to decide NOT to reinstall the game, in my MANY attempts to reset the game (I have to uninstall and reinstall ), when it gets stuck in the chocolate challenge reward and allowed me to collect as many points as my heart desired, as long as I want to sit there and tap on my screen. Crazy thing is, it pops up randomly.... I don’t play the chocolate challenge to prompt the rewards for it!!!!Some challenge😒 FYI: the points are still waiting in my bank for you to take. And where the heck are my crowns???? Come on guys.... it’s covid season. I work on the front lines. You don’t owe me an thing, however my pac man is a huge part of my downtime/decompress time!! I love my Pac-Man, and would settle for the old version if you can’t fix my game, make my challenges work, and tell me if there are new guidelines to collecting the darn crowns!!!! Please don’t harm my Pac-Man spirit!!!

    A lot of times the controls dont work yet the ghosts keep moving after you. This app sucks. It takes forever to load and I'm pretty sure its because of the ads. And the ads are unbearable. They force you to watch multiple ads and they removed the mute button so ur forced to hear them now too. Pacman is hard enough as it is without you screwing it up even more. Never again.

    Really loved this game until recent update to Story Mode and now even though I've unlocked the Classic Arcade version it isn't functioning properly and allowing me to start from my unlocked levels. Example: I've unlocked level 24 with the safe but when I start playing again I start at level 19. Very frustrating! Used to be a great stress reliever... Not anymore.
  • Stopped working May 13, 2020

    By Ex keeper
    March 28, 2020.....stopped working. Loads forever and eventually tells me to update. Removed the app (several times) and reloaded. No change. What did you all break? Also, like someone else mentioned, the newest version is not as user friendly than the previous version. Looks nicer but much harder to navigate May 13, 2020. Still no real fixing of the game. I’ve been collecting coins for the Chocolate tournament for weeks. Half the time I come into the game it just goes to a window for me to claim those Chocolate coins and is in a constant loop with that window with no way out but kill the game. On the times that I can actually get in to play, eventually the Chocolate window is back up and the fun times are quickly over. Right now there’s only one tournament to select from and that’s been for weeks. So totally frustrating for a game that used to run smooth with no problems.

    I'm with all of you that are stuck in frozen Story Mode with no way to get to the game like it was. I figured when I updated it it'd be better like not do it's own thing anymore cause that got on my last nerve especially when I was playing a Tournament game and had to wait 2 hours before I could play again. Please put it back the way it was or at least make a way for us to choose which one we want to play. Something's got to give cause we sure can't play it the way it is.
  • For the Pac-Man fans Jul 14, 2021

    By ryzxin
    Go play pac-man elsewhere. I saw ads within the first minute of the game. I didn’t even play a single match of pac-man yet before the ad came up haha. The first question that was asked is whether if allow relevant ads or not, it had nothing to do wi the gameplay. This is clearly just an ad machine to make money instead of a proper game made for pac-man fans. The devs should be ashamed, but then again, why would you expect a quality game from the App Store? It takes a lot for someone to break the cheesy freemium mobile game structure and make something that’s actually fun and worth playing. The developers here didn’t achieve that. They just took our beloved pac-man and made this mess of a game to trick you guys into watching ads of other games so they can make money. They could have easily made money other ways, but they’ve sold their souls and this is what we got. Thanks but no thanks.
