Game developer Namco Bandai has released a free version of classic Pac-Man game as PAC-MAN + Tournaments in Google Play. In addition to the free to play game, Android users will also be able to play in the new Tournament mode against others.
Users can also purchase new mazes and even win real-world prizes like PAC-MAN memorabilia and gadgets (US only right now).
“PAC-MAN was the first video game available for Android phones back in 2008, and with PAC-MAN +Tournaments, we’re excited to expand our Google Play lineup with a game that revitalizes that beloved gameplay for a whole new group of fans,” said James Kucera, Head of Mobile, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.
“My favorite part is the balance of new and old — players will be excited about the new Tournament mode, while the leaderboards and friend system harken back to the competitive arcade atmosphere from PAC-MAN’s beginnings,” he added.
Namco Bandai has revealed that they will also release exclusive DLC in the future.
