Pac-Man Vs. is a lesser-known game in the Pac-Man franchise. It was originally designed to be exclusive to the GameCube but was later featured in the Namco Museum for DS. It wasn't even sold separately, however it was a bonus disc for a few Namco games.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The game uses the Game Boy Advance in a unique way. It does not require any software to be active on the system. The player with the GBA plays as Pac-Man, while the other players control the ghosts on the GameCube. For this reason, the game was multi-player only.
Pac Man's goal is to eat all the pellets on the board before they get hit by a ghost. Ghost players only have a limited view of the board; whereas Pac-Man has a full view. Ghosts can expand their vision by eating fruit on the map.
If there are less than 4 players on the GameCube, inactive ghosts will be greyed out and harmless to Pac-Man. However, another ghost can touch it and tag it with their own colour, which will then be controlled by the CPU. If it kills Pac-Man, the points will go to the player that tagged the ghost originally. The first player to reach a predetermined score is the winner.
There are multiple stages to choose from, including the classic board.
