Ms. Pac-Man for video iPod
Namco Networks today released Ms. Pac-Man for the video iPod via the iTunes Store for $4.99. The release marks the 25th anniversary of the classic video game and serves as the companion to the original Pac-Man that launched when iPod games were first released in September of last year. Ms. Pac-Man is the second Namco game produced for the video iPod, challenging players to navigate the character through four different mazes while evading ghosts. Ms. Pac-Man is charged with chomping all of the pellets on the screen to proceed to the next level and specially placed 'power pellets' enable players to temporarily gobble up the ghosts to send them back to their start locations. Ms. Pac-Man features 256 maze levels with the 'coffee break' animated intervals available in the original coin-op arcade version. The iPod version also features arcade game cabinet art as well as a tutorial level.
