Bandai Namco Entertainment, who we’ve regularly stayed in touch with, has released a major update for PAC-MAN Puzzle Tour, the popular match-3 puzzle game available for free on both iOS and Android. The recent update features a retro look and the all-new “Score Attack Mode” in which players are challenged to get the highest score within a specified time limit. Before each Score Attack stage begins, players can choose characters from classic arcade games.
Once the player’s skill gauge is full these characters will conduct a special move to help clear the board. Initially gamers will only be able to play as PAC-MAN, but as they proceed through the game they’ll unlock new characters such as DIG-DUG and Galaga. Also included in the update is a special leaderboard just for “Score Attack Mode” and users who are top ranked will be offered various in-app game items as a prize. At the time of this writing, PAC-MAN Puzzle Tour is available for free on the App Store with optional in-app purchases.
