The Pac is back and he’s received a fresh new makeover for 2013. It was back during last month’s E3 we ran into Namco Bandai’s huge outdoor booth where a plethora of cute girls were showing off “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures,” coming soon to consoles. This is a title based off a Disney XD show of the same name and today, the Pac-Man from that same universe has arrived on Android devices.
Pac-Man Dash! — now available on Google Play — is more of a spin-off than a reboot, but one things for certain: this isn’t your grandma’s Pac-Man. Following mobile gaming’s latest trend, Pac-Man Dash features the trademark yellow hero from the 80’s in a balls-to-the-wall, endless running action platformer. There are still thousands of cookies and ghosts to help quench Pac-Man’s insatiable appetite, but you’re going to need to buckle up because things move fast. PMD features 4 save files — complete with Google Drive integration — so your friends and/or family can play at their own pace, without messing up your progress or score.
Honestly, I haven’t seen an Android title with this level of polish in quite sometime. On a 1080p resolution display, Pac-Man Dash looks absolutely gorgeous. Colors pop, animations are smooth and fluid, and after you factor in blistering fast gameplay and the free entry fee — Namco Bandai really hit this one out of the ballpark. If it looks even remotely interesting, don’t waste another minute and give Pac-Man Dash a download on your Android device right now. You’re going to love it.
