Epileptics be warned.
My previous encounters with Pac-Man were a long time ago, and I decided to get this since I had a case of Pac-Fever.
I did not regret it.
There's not actually alot to say about Pacman:CE DX. There's a ton of different mazes to play in, different visual styles, and even a couple of different game modes such as:
- Ghost Hunt: where your only goal is to get as much ghosts as you can in one Power Pellet chain (My current record is 99)
- Score Attack: 5/10 Minutes of score attack, nothing special
- Time Trials: a game where you have to collect a certain amount of Fruit within a time limit
- Free Mode: Just play however you want
All of these modes combined with all the maps and visual styles available will probably keep high-score junkies entertained for a while. But if you're not the kind of guy to shoot for high-scores, there's not THAT much of a draw to keep playing.
There's still something strangely addicting about just getting a chain of 30 ghosts behind you, then rushing to that power pellet for massive points. And I didn't exactly think to spend my evening playing Pac-Man, but I'm not complaining.
So to the point, you could certainly do alot worse for 800 points.
