The gaming landscape has seen quite a few mascots over the years, but few have lasted as long as Pac-Man. As of this writing, Pac-Man has remained in the public consciousness for over 40 years, with the sheer timelessness of its arcade formula serving as a major contributor toward this success. Naturally, Bandai Namco has rereleased many of the most iconic Pac-Man games several times within this timeframe, with one notable instance of this coming in the form of the Pac-Man Museum collection back in 2014. And now, a sequel to this collection, dubbed Pac-Man Museum +, will see a release for PC on May 27.
According to a press release, Pac-Man Museum + boasts 14 Pac-Man games as opposed to the original’s 10, and these titles cater to all kinds of tastes. For those who want the traditional maze gameplay that defines the series, titles like the original Pac-Man and Pac-Man Championship Edition should do more than enough to satisfy. On the other hand, those looking for a twist to the standard formula can check out Super Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, and Pac & Pal, among others. Some may want something completely different, however, in which case games like Pac-Land and Pac-in-Time will offer exactly this.
More than a dozen games, plus challenges and tunes
Outside of the 14 Pac-Man games, Pac-Man Museum + features a customizable arcade for you to dabble in. By completing various challenges, you can earn a wide variety of collectible items used to make the arcade of your dreams. Additionally, the collection features an in-game jukebox that contains a whole host of classic tunes.
If you have found yourself craving some classic Pac-Man action as of late, then the upcoming release of Pac-Man Museum + will provide you with more than you could ever ask for. Not every game in the collection is guaranteed to be a winner, but you will likely find something in there that speaks to you.
