pac man 256 finally got it right. pac man 257 is going to be an instant classic imo

Review from Steam

In Pac-Man 256 you find yourself in an infinite maze with the pressure of a glitch in the matrix that destroys everything,
it won't make much difference whether our yellow pill taker takes a red or a blue pill, as long as it's in the direction away from the glitch all is safe and sound.
It is also possible to play locally with a friend and see who can get the furthest.
You can check out Pac-Man 256 gameplay here:
The game also has good support for ultra-wide resolutions although I don't think it brings much of an advantage to the gameplay of this game,
you can see an example of gameplay at 3840*1080 resolution here:

Review from Steam

If there's a video game basically everyone has heard of, that's probably Pac-Man. A very simple game released as an arcade back in 1980, where a little yellow fellow eats dots in a maze for seemingly no apparent reason, while carefully avoiding ghosts. PAC-MAN 256 is a resurrection of the classic game, taking over everything the original had, but also featuring some major differences, making the rather dated gameplay somewhat more interesting.
Here, compared to the original, there are several changes in the concept. The most important one is that there are no individual levels anymore, where eating all dots is the key to progress to the next one. Instead of levels, there's just one endless area here, where we are forced to move upwards before the void (or glitch - a reference to the original game) consumes us. To make our job harder, there are various types of ghosts around that will immediately kill us upon contact. Each different coloured ghost has different behaviour and movement pattern: for example the blue ones move around in pre-defined circles while the red one home in on us.
Other than evading these ghosts, we can also kill them, after collecting "power pellets" (large dots) and use various power-ups (such as tornadoes or stealth). We can equip 3 of these at a time and there are 21 of these alltogether, each with 8 different levels, slightly increasing their duration. Coins are required to unlock and purchase these upgrades. We can earn money through objectives (the amount is random), which the game constantly throws at us, but we can also pick up packs of coins (yellow token - 4 coints, orange token - 10 coins). The various collectable fruits have nothing to do with money, they only add multipliers to our received score.
The game can also be played co-operatively, naturally it's much more fun this way.
The graphics are functional, but that's OK, since the game doesn't require more really (+ it takes less than a 100 MB of disk space). As a matter of fact there are several themes/visual styles we can play the game with, which adds some variety, like the retro '80s or my favourite one where we play as a chicken avoiding cars :)
The sound effects repertoire consists of the usual "pew-pew" sounds, where I think they could have thrown in something extra.
Well, there's really not a lot more to say (/write about): it's a redesigned version of Pac-Man for PC with all the features this game ever required. I can understand however that fans of the original game won't like the infinite scrolling concept.
PROS
+ it's Pac-Man :)
+ plenty of power-ups
+ different themes
CONS
- the amount of received money is way too luck dependent
- fans of the original may not like the endless level setup
RATING
6.5/10
