Pacman Download Mac

For those of you just arriving on Planet Earth, Pac-Man is one of the classic video games that started it all in the arcades. If you've yet to be initiated, here's all you need to know: Pac-Man is a round mound of fun who must cruise around a maze-like screen and gobble up all the little yellow power pills. When he's gobbled up all of the pills he can move on to the next maze.

Doodle for 30th Anniversary of PAC-MAN. Google homepage, May 21, 2010. Free download Pac-Man 6.5 Mb. Download Mac Version. Game Screenshots System Requirements: OS: Windows XP/Vista/7 CPU: 800 MHz RAM: 256 MB. Also translated into GameBoy Pac-man is the option to view either a large partial screen or a smaller complete screen. A special two-player option allows two people with the official video link to go at it head-to-head! The cart uses the standard Pac-man maze, and some of the original patterns work too.

Unfortunately for Pac-Man a troop of nasty ghosts haunt him as he cruises around the maze. If they catch him he loses a life. Lucky for Mr. Pac the can grab a giant power pill and turn the ghosts blue. While they're blue he can munch them down for bonus points. Pac-Man can also grab tasty fruit snacks and other bonus items that enable him to score big, earn extra lives, and generally have a good time.

The Two Player version of the game is fun, although in both versions it's tough to maneuver Pac-Man without a joystick. Other than that the game is faithful to the arcade classic. If you liked Pac-Man in the arcades, you'll like it on the Game Gear. If you didn't...well...Wacka, Wacka, Wacka!

ProTips:

  • Don't forget to use the side escapes to move back and forth from left and right
  • Pac-Man doesn't maneuver too mil in tight spots-so don't get him caught in the comers!
  • Lure the ghosts close to a big dot and then grab it Now you can gobble up the ghosts before they get away.
Overall rating: 7.5

Other Pac-Man Options


If you find your Pac-Man needs are not being met by the Google version of the game, there are some other free or inexpensive alternatives.

Namco has a special website set up in honor of Pac-Man's 30th Anniversary which includes history about the game, related art and games you can download for your PC or mobile device.

  • Windows users can download the original Pac-Man game from Namco's official site for just $2.99. You can download a trial version first to see if it's worth the $3.

  • Mac users can enjoy Pac The Man X, a free Pac-Man clone for Mac OS X. The game supports one or two players and is fun, but be aware that it moves much faster than the original game.

  • Linux users can enjoy NjAM, which our friend Richard Stallman will like, as its licensed under the GPL.

  • On the iPhone, Ms. Pacman [iTunes link] and Pacman Championship Edition [iTunes link] are both on sale for $0.99. Pacman Lite is also available for free.

  • On the Android front, at one time, Namco had an official Pac-Man game available in the Android Market but we don't know its current status. However, Mazeoid, a Pac-Man clone, is available for free.
