Pac-Man Museum + is a compilation of Pac-Man games, released in 2022 by Bandai Namco Entertainment. It is the direct follow-up to 2014's Pac-Man Museum, adding various new games and features.

Games

The game's trailer states that "coins" are required to play the games; it is unclear how exactly this mechanic works, though coins can be earned by completing various "missions". The console games seem to be labeled as "Free Games", so they may be able to be played indefinitely.

Infamously, any graphics of Ms. Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man from the original games are replaced with generic characters in this compilation, due to a series of legal issues surrounding the Ms. Pac-Man property. Graphics of Jr. Pac-Man are left mostly intact, though still have minor alterations. The Ms. Pac-Man counterpart is renamed to "Pac-Mom"; the presumed-renames of Jr. and Baby Pac are currently unknown.

Arcade Room

Replacing the Ghostly Adventures-themed "Pac Room" in the original Pac-Man Museum is a 3D arcade area. The player navigates the arcade as Pac-Man, and can customize it to their liking. This includes placing and designing the arcade machines in whichever way the player prefers, as well as adding various additional trinkets and display pieces (purchasable via coins). By completing various missions and achievements, the Ghosts can arrive as "customers" to the arcade, who will walk around the room alongside Pac-Man.

Trivia

  • The designs of the Pac-Man, Pac-Land, and Pac-Mania cabinets are all modeled after their Bally Midway and Atari machine counterparts; the other games, however, feature new or altered machine designs. This is the first proper Pac-Man compilation to feature the Bally Midway/Atari era artwork.
    • The Super Pac-Man cabinet and in-game artwork is based on the Bally Midway machine; however, the artwork of Pac-Man and the ghosts are re-used assets from modern promotional artwork (with the exception of Pac-Man, which uses artwork from the original Japanese release).
    • Oddly, the Pac & Pal cabinet seems to be modeled after a custom, unofficial machine, which was created for a Funspot arcade tournament in 2013.[2] Further elements are seemingly based on a fan-made Pac-Man & Chomp-Chomp artwork kit by Pacific Arcades (though featuring Miru in Chomp-Chomp’s place).[3]
  • All the cabinets appear to be using the same base model, which in some cases is inaccurate to the original designs of the machines.
  • This compilation marks the first time Pac-In-Time, Pac 'n Roll Remix, and Pac-Motos have been re-released.
  • This compilation marks the first time the two Pac-Man Arrangement titles (from Namco Classic Collection Vol. 2 and Namco Museum Battle Collection) have been included in a single collection. It is also the first instance where the games were given labels to distinct both versions from each other.
  • In the Japanese Pac-Man Museum + website, there are 18 sprites. Some of them however weren't used in the trailers.
  • The 2005 version of Pac-Man Arrangement lacks the two-player mode found in the original Namco Museum Battle Collection release of the game. This was also the case in Namco Museum Virtual Arcade, Pac-Man Remix and the original Pac-Man Museum, which all excluded the two-player mode.
    • It is assumed that the lack of multiplayer may be related to the ongoing copyright issues with Ms. Pac-Man, who was featured in the game and is currently experiencing conflicts with GCC and AtGames.
