Can play multiplayer now, dont use parental controls
EDIT: Turns out my issue connecting is that the game prevents you from playing multiplayer if you have parental controls turned on. I turned it off and it works fine.
That is a stupid feature, partly because the game only lets you connect to people WITH A PASSWORD. And being prevented from joining a game of PAC-MAN without literally any form of communication outside usernames is pointless, especially when it’s literally the only thing on my iPad that parental controls actually affects.
Apparently this is an ongoing problem with some Apple Arcade games. Please, though, there is no reason to gate multiplayer PAC-MAN behind parental controls.
Annoying random direction changes & gets old fast
Worst part is the random direction changes: you’ll be going straight then it’ll just turn, maybe right into a ghost, a powered-up enemy pac-man, or the glitch storm. That’s bad enough on its own to pass on this.
But even without the bugginess, there’s plenty more that could be done with this idea to keep it from getting boring so fast. Larger, more interesting maps with a wider variety of power-ups (invisible, invincible, speed, extra bouncy collisions, etc.) plus skins (colors, patterns, or even Ms. Pac-man).
There’s a place for simple games and they should stick with having a basic mode to keep it accessible to all ages, but they NEED to fix the random direction changing and expand the concept further to make room for more interesting game play.
First of all it’s a great game but if you can add a shop to buy pac man skins like for example for skins you can add a blue pac man stuff like that and get pac coins for winning quick play in each round second of all why in quick you have to be the regular pac man cause it’s getting old why can’t you just choose what pac man you want to be?Last is why are the AI in the game easy to beat why can’t you just make it harder oh by the way try to add multiplayer if you can.
Great Game but doesn’t connect online
This is a great game and one of the most fun arcade games on Apple Arcade. However, it has some real issues when trying to connect with friends online. It seems to work over a local WiFi but trying to play with my friends over distances has been impossible and an exercise in frustration. I wrote a support email and didn’t get a reply. So I’m posting this review push the developers to fix this problem.
UPDATE: we’re all on the newest version of the game. The issue is with long distance connections. I can connect with people close to me. It doesn’t work with friends in a different country.
Fun to Play, But Has a Few Issues / Suggested Improvements
Very fun, frenetic gameplay with local friends! However, it regularly glitches out in location / placement updates of the characters during multiplayer. Sometimes a player will jump through a ghost or bumping two players together will bump one player somewhere unpredictable.
Would love to see the following improvements, too:
1. Cherries and other fruit - where are they?
2. The power pills start in the same place on each map, which means that people can lurk / predict - why not make it completely random?
3. If you become a ghost early on in the game, you have no chance of speeding up and catching the other players, who are all getting faster by eating the pellets - why not have a way for a ghost player to also get faster?
4. The swipe controls definitely still need improvements - why not add a virtual joystick option?
5. In single player mode, why can I not change the name of my PAC-MAN to something other than “You”?
Good game but could improve
I like this game and it is very fun but I would add a few things to make it better. First of all you should add a brawl/multiplayer mode where you can play with other people without inviting each other to a party. Secondly, I think that you should be able to choose in quick play mode (at least) which ghosts chase you, meaning any combination of the 5 ghosts in pac-man.
Other than that this is a pretty good game.
Amazing game! Needs multiplayer though.
It’s a very fun easy but yet challenging game to play that will entertain you for sure. Especially with all the fun colors there are, who wouldn’t love the game. Although they need to have an opinion to playing with random people online worldwide. That’s the reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars. Besides that, it’s a very entertaining game to play on your free time. 🌈

I’ve always loved Pacman games. This game just added another piece to that puzzle. Only one issue that I have. Could you guys add matchmaking? I love the Party play that allows you to play with family/friends, but I don't have many family/friends that have an iPhone also Apple Arcade. If you guys could do that, that'll be Awesome!
Keep up the Great Work!!!!

Hello! I gotta say, i love the game. But i feel like it would be cool if there was a shop where you could buy skins for your pac! For example, you could buy a rainbow pac. And also there could be Pac-Coins that you get for winning and for eating other pacs and ghosts. I know this was short, but i feel like a shop would be epic.
Latest Update is Phenominal
I’ll be the first to say that I was very critical of this game when it was first released. I re-downloaded this game with its latest update. This update fixes everything wrong with this game and now it is very enjoyable! Thank you for improving this application!
