Inky, Pinky, Blinky and You


Pac-Man is back, and this time he’s phoned a friend.

Way back when I was a young ‘un, there was this game about a yellow blob that hid from ghosts until he could chomp ’em. Now you can enjoy it too, but with the addition that it’s not just on your mobile phone, but there’s a Europe wide score board.

That’s right, all you need are Bluetooth phones and you can play as either Pac-Man or one of the ghosts. Along with the co-op mode, there are little details such as pause/resume, saving positions, but it’s still the hungry yellow muncher and the multi-colored ghosts running a maze.

Pac-Man himself now suffers from “Fog of War” where he can only see the areas of the maze he’s been to, making strategy even harder than usual; and allowing for ghost team ups.
(Unfortunately, you don’t get to play a Ghost Tank though.)

Details via the Namco website. He may be approaching 30, but the yellow guy can still out-chomp baby Mario.
