Pac-Man Dash! is a mobile game released in 2013 by Bandai Namco Games. It is based on the TV series Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. It was removed from the App Store March 21, 2017.


Gameplay

The player navigates an auto-running Pacster through the level. There is a very short time limit, and the goal is to complete the set mission before the timer runs out. Eating a Ghost will earn one second of time back.

The game uses a form of virtual currency "Cookies" that are used to unlock items. The cookies cannot be bought separately, having to be earned in the game itself. The player also cannot play the game more than ten times in a row, without having to either wait to refill their "life" bar, or paying $0.99 to refill instantly.

Items

All special items in Pac-Man Dash! were based on (now out-of-print) Ghostly Adventures toys, excluding the default "Dash!" item. If the player has the toy an item is based on, they could have scanned the barcode on the packaging and get the ability for half-price. The items are the following:
