Magma Opus is the third level in the Lava area of Pac-Man World 2.

This level is made with more lava sections than Volcanic Panic and is the level right before Clyde in the Caldera. This level is also full of rising and falling platforms, killing Pac-Man if he does not manage to make it across lava sections and does not have the metal power up scattered throughout the level. This takes place in the magma chamber of the volcano. Stony also appears two times in this level and in fact, Pac-Man has the ability to defeat Stony both times in this level by using the steel ball power-up and butt-bouncing on him.

It's possible to get 7,650 points by eating enough Ghosts in a row in one area. The Galaxian's maze uses unique scenery that isn't found anywhere else in the game, and is also unique for having warps on the top and bottom.

The final section of the level involves rolling down multiple slides, collecting the Fruit along the way. The first slide forces you into a Checkpoint, and you can't get back up, so if you miss anything on the slide and you're going for 100% level completion, you'll be forced to redo everything.


  • In the first area with a Stony, it's possible for Pac-Man to die before he actually touches the lava, even in metal form. Coincidentally, this is how lava works in real life...the "glitch" made it more realistic.
  • The level name is a pun on the Latin term "magnum opus", meaning "masterpiece".
  • The level's music is significantly different than that of Into the Volcano and Volcanic Panic. This is the only non-boss level with this distinction.
