- good controls
- help you on your way
- Well designed
Who does not know Pac-Man? And who has never played a game with the yellow monster in the main role? Unless you’re fairly young, you’ve probably at least heard of our gluttony. Especially if you were born in the ’90s or were born before that. The creature is famous for eating blocks on the screen and dodging ghosts. So the hungry animal can be found in the lanes for the first time.
However, fewer people will have heard of Pac-Man: World, a 3D platformer that came out on PlayStation. In honor of the twentieth anniversary. It happened in the year 2000. However, this game was revamped in the form of Pac-Man: World Re-Pac and that’s what we are going to look at now.
There is a story
This title is about freeing your family. They are kidnapped by Ghost Gang led by Toc-Man. You can do this by going through different levels and completing missions. Several interesting and sometimes difficult levels to follow. A completely different approach to what you’re used to with yellow hunger. However, the story doesn’t get more depth than I just described.
This is actually not a bad thing, as it is about overcoming various challenges. Soon you will have a good idea of the controls, because they are explained very well at the beginning of the game. As a result, you never feel like you don’t know exactly what to do.
The different levels are simple but well designed. It is relatively easy to find the way through the level. However, if you want to collect all the extras, sometimes you have a nice job. Think of putting together the six letters that spell Pac-Man. These can be found in every level. In addition to the bonuses hidden behind the gate or fence, for which you need keys or other supplies. This means that you can enjoy playing each level for some time.
It becomes more difficult as the game progresses to cross the levels. The roads are a little hard to find and more challenges lie ahead. For example, there are more and stronger enemies. In addition, you will face a boss at the end of every four levels. This is often not too difficult, but it offers good versatility. All of this makes it fun to have an adventure with Yellow Grab.
Is everything perfect then?
Is everything perfect then? that’s not the point. Sometimes it’s hard to find your way from one platform to another. This is mainly due to the camera, so sometimes things fall out of the picture. This sometimes makes it difficult to time your jump correctly. In addition, it is sometimes questionable whether there is another platform in the direction that you are jumping. This can be a little frustrating, but I like to take it for granted against all the positives that can be mentioned.
Pac-Man World Re-Pac is an entertaining platform game that obviously gets you started. The levels are well designed and full of challenges (optional). However, do not expect too much from the story, because it is very simple. The controls are great, but the camera can work against you at times, so you miss a platform or jump to a platform that isn’t there. However, that shouldn’t spoil the fun, as this is an overall fun game.
