17 Pac-Man Championship Edition

When Pac-Man C.E. was released on Xbox Live Arcade in mid-2007, it was celebrated as the revival that fans had been waiting for since Ms. Pac-Man. Developed by the creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani, Championship Edition features a distinctively futuristic art direction and level progression focused more on getting as many points as possible within a time limit than finishing multiple individual levels like in the original. The iPhone adaptation of Pac-Man C.E. is essentially identical to the Xbox Live Arcade version, although in-game DLC must be purchased to "unlock" the full XBLA build of the game. While one might expect that a game like Pac-Man would demand physical button inputs in order to feel responsive, Namco has devised a dual-joystick control setup that works surprisingly well. That control scheme is selectable amongst three total control options, but it's the one that we recommend for serious players.
