PAC-MAN becomes a Pinball Wizard!

11 November 2008

London, UK– Namco Bandai Networks Europe, a leading global publisher of mobile games, today announces the launch of PAC-MAN Pinball 2, joining together the most iconic computer games character in the world with next generation arcade pinball action.

The second outing of this successful partnership reignites the fun of classic pinball inspired by the original PAC-MAN game. Complete with mazes, surprises and a mini PAC-MAN game, PAC-MAN Pinball 2 features a vibrant soundtrack inspired by the classic PAC-MAN theme, as well as three brand new table designs.

An all-new physics engine optimised for the latest generation of mobile devices makes this one of the most realistic pinball games on mobile today.

As you play in the traditional pinball format, the game takes advantage of the phone’s functionality by vibrating and shaking with every bounce of the ball as well as the opportunity to nudge the table should you need to use some creative cheating! (on touch devices this is activated by tilting your device).

Barry O’Neill, President of Namco Bandai Networks Europe said“PAC-MAN is one of the most recognisable game characters globally. PAC-MAN Pinball 2 once again proves that PAC-MAN can deliver a highly entertaining experience across many game genres. Pinball is in many ways a perfect casual game, with two-button control making it an accessible game for all gamers to simply pick-up and play whilst on the move.”
