Bandai Namco has announced Pac-Man Geo, a new mobile app for iOS or Android that will bring Pac-Man into the real-world…kind-of.
This game will let you use real-world road maps to create Pac-Man levels, and has been made using information from Google Maps.
Players can choose the scope of their level, and then fill the on-screen map with power pellets and ghosts to eat and avoid as you would in a regular Pac-Man maze. Part of the pleasure of the game, according to Bandai Namco, will be in exploring and discovering interesting terrain–this is not a location-dependent app, so you can play with maps from all over the world. This could be true as COVID-19 restrictions continue to make travel difficult or impossible.
Some screenshots of the game have been released, although they do not give a whole lot of insight into how the game will play, necessarily. However, it won’t be long until the game releases, and it’ll be a free-to-play title with in-app purchases.
You can now pre-register for the game on Google Play, if you want to be notified when the game is available.
