Macworld UK has posted a review of Pac-Man for iPod, one of several games for the hand held multimedia device. This version of the game stays true to the original title with the inclusion of all 256 levels. Macworld UK gave Pac-Man a 4 star rating.

From the review:

Controlling Pac-Man is a little unusual. If you’re used to a joystick or keyboard, playing a game such as this with the click wheel takes some getting used to. You can either slide your finger around the wheel using an on-screen joystick to control Pac-Man, or lightly tap the corners of the wheel to move in that direction. It lacks precision, however, which in a game such as this can be the difference between life and death.

Visually, Pac-Man takes you straight back to the origins of the game. Comparing the screen display to that of the original arcade version, there’s very little in it. It is, however, rather small when all’s said and done. Perhaps turning the display on a 90-degree angle would have made for better visibility – particularly for those with poor eyesight.

The sound effects will take you back to your first time playing the game. There’s no need for a full orchestra score in Pac-Man – there’s a real adrenaline rush whenever the ghosts are on your tail, and the sound effects help to drive that.
