Apple App Store Opens, Namco Serves Up PAC-Man Games
      #30743 - 07/10/08 05:17 PM

Namco Networks today announced that arcade-favorites, PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN is available today priced at just $9.99 each from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.

In addition to the classic game play offered by PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN, two of the most popular video games in American arcade history, the games have been ?upgraded? to take full advantage of the iPhone's capabilities. Countless hours and quarters have been spent at the arcade on these classic games, and now, the popularity of PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can be enjoyed on-the-go with new iPhone features like controlling the game with an accelerometer.

?We are excited to add iPhone and iPod touch to the list of devices that consumers can use to play PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN,? said Scott Rubin, vice president of sales and marketing for Namco Networks. ?We are delighted that we could utilize the innovation of the iPhone OS to bring high-quality, fun Namco titles like PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN to a new platform.?

PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN on the iPhone feature three unique control schemes, virtual d-pad control, touch screen and accelerometer, enabling the ultimate gaming experience while highlighting the capabilities of the platform. The accelerometer allows players to control PAC-MAN or Ms. PAC-MAN by tilting the phone in the direction that they want them to chomp the PAC-dots and ghosts or eat the bonus fruit. There are two distinct touchscreen controls for the game, one allows players to direct PAC-MAN?s path by simply tapping on the screen and the other introduces a virtual D-pad, simulating the game play of PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN on other gaming devices.
