Namco Networks has launched a second iPod video version of its classic Pac-Mac title to mark the 25th anniversary of the game.
Ms. Pac-Man is available now on the iTunes Store and will work with the fifth generation iPod. The game joins the original version of Pac-Man which was launched last September through the media store. The game costs £3.99.
“Appearing on almost every gaming platform, Ms. Pac-Man has achieved iconic status since debuting 25 years ago and has become one of the top-selling video games in history,” said Scott Rubin, vice president of sales and marketing for Namco Networks. "Launching on the iPod is a great way to kick-off a year-long anniversary celebration.”
Game features include four maze designs, 256 maze levels and the 'coffee break' — animated intervals from the original game. The iPod version also features retro art from the original arcade cabinet and a tutorial level, which allows players to perfect their ghost avoidance skills. This version also allows players to listen to the original retro game sounds or music from their fifth generation iPod library while playing.
Ms. Pac-Man debuted in 1982.
