This week, the editors over at Apple chose the PAC-MAN Friends app as the Free app of the week for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. The free app has tilt control, retina support and 95 levels of play. Despite being the free app of the week, dozens of reviews I browsed through complain of in-app purchases as well as ads in between levels. Sounded a bit sketch to me so I skipped on downloading it for my devices.
Possibly a skip for this week…. but then again, free is free. You can always check it out and blow it away if you don’t like it.
PAC-MAN Friends is a new, original fast-paced game using classic PAC-MAN characters! With simple tilt controls, you can maneuver PAC-MAN through progressively challenging mazes to rescue his friends from the Ghosts’ Castle!
Steer clear of Blinky, leader of the gang, along with his fellow ghosts Pinky, Inky, and Clyde and all new obstacles or you’ll lose a life. Grab the flashing Power Pellets to temporarily turn the tables and gobble up those pesky ghosts! Find and munch fruit for big points!
Unlock new friends! With powers like Invisibility to Ghosts, Wall Crashing and Illumination, each friend has a unique ability to aid PAC-MAN on his journey!
If the Ghosts catch you, use Cherries to save PAC-MAN or his friends and continue the action! Use the Slow Time boost to give you the edge and score the fastest time!
You can explore 95 levels in 6 worlds and unlock 9 uniquely powered friends. Hours of light-hearted, fun adventure lie ahead! Challenge your friends! Collect keys and fruit to unlock the next episode and explore the world of PAC-MAN Friends.
