Pac-ManiaSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Pac Mania brings a different style in Pac Man gaming. The levels and characters are presented in an isometric (pseudo-3D) style and this time Pac Man can also jump(!) And, believe me, this jumping ability can save you from hard situations. But Pac Man must watch out for ghosts that also have jumping abilities. The main goal of the game is to swallow all the dots and complete the level. The "funny" ghosts now hover in the air instead of...running around. Also the dots and energy pellets "hang" in midair. In addition, there's also a use of a Special Booster that makes Pac Man move at super-high speeds. You'll love the new challenging levels; they are available in so many mind-boggling shapes and they'll surely turn you into a certified Pac Maniac in no time! Pac Mania is a simple, addictive and excellent game to play for hours!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics are bright, colorful, smooth and "arcadey". The screen mode is pretty large and covers almost all of your TV screen (at least on the Megadrive version) and the action is fantastic. The sound FX and the music scores in each level are purely awesome.

OVERALL
Pac Mania is a great and fun to play platform game that shouldn't be missed by any serious gamer. I absolutely recommend it!
