Were you looking for the 3DS game?

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, known in Japan as Pac-World (パックワールド Pakkuwārudo) is a video game, developed by Monkey Bar Games and published by Bandai Namco Games in 2013.

Story

The game begins with Pacster and his friends, Cylindria and Spiral, walking into Sir Cumference's lab. Three golden orbs are displayed on a table; and while Sir C is explaining what they are to Pac-Man, four ghosts from the Netherworld (Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde) come and tell Pac-Man that Pacopolis is under attack by the force of Betrayus, king of the Netherworld. Their attack is in attempt to steal the Frigidigitador, a device Sir C made for when Betrayus would make another heat-wave device (like the one from Season 1 episode "Betrayus Turns The Heat Up"). It is up to Pac-Man and friends to protect the Frigidigitador and defeat Betrayus.

Single Player

The single player mode is a 3D platformer. The player controls Pacster, who eats everything in sight, and must direct him towards the end of the stage. Pac-Man can also gain abilities such as Ice, Metal, and Fire, which are earned by eating Power Berries. At the end of each level, he collects either a Lemon, Pineapple, Cherry, or Zucchini.

Multiplayer

The multiplayer mode is very similar to Pac-Man Vs., particularly the Switch version of the game. Players take control of Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and/or Clyde, and chase Pac-Man around the maze; the ghost that catches him first wins the round. The game continues until the set amount of rounds have been completed.

Minigames

Minigames are unlocked by collecting the specific amount of Fruit they require. The minigames include:

  • Cherry Copter Rescue - Blast the slime and Black Ghosts to free the Pac-Worlders. Protect the Pac-Worlders until they get to safety. Catch falling Pac-Worlders and drop them near the safe houses.
  • Lemon Blaster - Pilot the Lemon Rocket through the Netherworld. Fly through or blast Slimetanium for fuel. Fly through Power Berries to get special weapons.
  • Pacerchini Panic - Drive the Pacerchini through the travel tubes. Reach the end of the course before the timer runs out. Shoot enemies and enemy vehicles; avoid civilian vehicles.
  • Tanks a Lot - Drive the Pineapple Tank through the maze. Blast enemies with your cannon. Watch out for the flying dragons. Roll over pick-ups to get special weapons.

Trivia

  • The arcade machines in the cafeteria make noises from Atari 2600 Pac-Man. It is unclear if this was intentional or just a stock asset.
  • In Europe and Australia, the game was released under the Namco brand name. This is the final time it was ever used, and all future releases by Bandai Namco were under their name instead.
