Ratings and Reviews
Developed by the creators of Crossy Road, Pac-Man 256 takes the familiar classic in a whole new direction—infinite maze-running! As you chomp through a never-ending grid of dots, fruit, and multi-colored ghosts, a creeping glitch pushes you ever forward. Fortunately, a slew of upgrades—from lasers to bombs—will help you demolish ghosts and forge a new high score. It’s a lovingly assembled package that’ll delight both arcade aficionados and casual gamers.
Amazing classical twist
I love Pac-man. I always thought the classical frenzy would be my favorite, yet this twist, is amazing. It starts easy and gets harder, yet in a more frantic way. The power ups, power pellets, fruit that Pac man eats and gets more points than normal for a duration, and 256 dot-chains that destroy all ghosts on the screen, are all incredible. Also it is cool that the PAC dot chains are 256 of them since the original PAC man had 256 levels then was supposed to end, although I don't know how anyone is supposed to be that, which made the original fun as well. If I could make one suggestion, although this game seems to be perfect and I understand if it doesn't get added, is I would love to see the ability to upgrade fruits. Thank you for reading and I love this game so much!
Once you've collected everything the only replay value is competing for 256 chains. I'm in the top 400 now and that's the only reason I keep playing. There are terrible bugs with the pac-dot chains. About 1 out of 5 times you eat a powerup it breaks the chain. I've lost many dozens of 256 chains because of this. Going the wrong way on the "fast" arrows usually breaks the PAC-dot chain. If the game lags at all then that breaks the PAC-dot chain. They need to have a better method of figuring out when the chain is broken besides timing based. However the powerup bug is the worst.
Trying to level up all the power ups in this game is a huge joke. I have maxed out the main 3, but now that they increased the max level to 12 there's no way a person will play or pay to max out all 20 power ups. And that is one of the achievements - the final one I need - is having maxed out all power ups. It would cost hundreds of dollars if you actually paid for coins to do it. So they've really broken the cost / value ratio of this game, and that's made it impossible to get all achievements unless you want to spend an insane amount of money.

Pac-Man 256 was developed by Hipster Whale, the team behind the popular game Crossy Road. The game has already been released for iOS and Android devices and is now playable on your TV screen via the Pac-Man 256 Apple TV app.
Control of Pac-Man on your TV involves using the remote control. Swipe left or right to turn down or up and down to change direction and to steer the yellow guy in the right direction. The game continues to work exactly the same on your iPhone or iPad.
Pac-Man 256 looks a lot like the original game, with some modern elements in it. The well-known edible dots, ghosts and the fruit – they are all there to be eaten by Pac-Man, but there are new ghosts and power-ups. The design features a new look.
