Twenty years after Pac-Man's first adventure in Pac-Land, Pac-Man returns home to find that all of his friends and family (Ms. Pac-Man, Pac Jr., Baby Pac, Professor Pac, Pooka, and even the dog Chomp -Chomp) are abducted by Toc-Man and his henchmen the Ghost Ticks. Pac-Man travels to Ghost Island to defeat Toc-Man and free his friends. The mere mention of Pac-Man evokes a wide range of different emotions in people of all ages and gaming preferences. Yellow, round as a ball, a funny hero appears on PlayStation screens, and this is not a compilation of the classic type. Now Mr. Pac-Man lives in a fully 3D polygonal world, jumping over enemies and platforms with amazing ease, even grace. The player needs to collect Pac-Dots, fruits, keys and, of course, pound enemies by jumping over their heads. The game encourages the player in every possible way - there are even secret chests that are sometimes quite difficult to get to, so your head will come in handy here too. It should be added that the game is made in amazing, bright and clear graphics, with very nice effects.
The game is fast and interesting. There are three game modes available to you - Labyrinth, Quest and Classic. The quest involves your adventure on Ghost Island, where Pac-Man will rescue his friends in six unique worlds. In Labyrinth mode, your target is old acquaintances that Pac-Man is pursuing (or vice versa) - Pinky, Inky, Blinky, and Clyde. The last mode is Classic, for those who want to touch the Legend of arcade games.
