    Ms. PAC-MAN

    Ms. PAC-MAN is a paid Namco game available for iPhone and Android devices. Just the popular and classic game but with a new character. Face new dot enemies and hit the leaderboard anyways, as you always did.

    "Ms. PAC-MAN is a classic. As a child, I would play this game at the arcades when mom would be shopping in the mall. While I love the game, the translation over to an iOS game iPad can become frustrating at times as it sometimes becomes unresponsible to finger swipes."

    "This is a cool game, but it's from the 90s. Therefore, despite it being one of my favorite classics, as it doesn't fit my search criteria I will have to give it a low score."

    "Well who doesn't love the original arcade PAC-MAN? The answer is no one. This app is certainly the solution to your 1980's game needs. With three game difficulties and constant updates for new mazes and challenges this app is the answer."

    "This is a great throwback game. It's fun to see the old 8-bits come out, but I still prefer modern graphics."
