The following tricks will help you eat more pac-dots in Pac-Man 256
By now, there is no way you haven’t heard of Crossy Road, the hit 2014 iOS game that reached 50 million downloads and netted its small Australian dev team over $10 million, all without the use of exploitative microtransactions and free to play hooks. Pac-Man 256 was built with a possible console or Steam release in mind, and more, all served on a bed of exclusive game play footage.
In Pac-Man 256 , you need eat more pac-dots, avoid the ghosts and get a high score in Bandai Namco’s endless maze game.
Although we don’t know of any Pac-Man 256 cheats, the following tips and tricks will help you eat more pac-dots to achieve a big-time combo, upgrade all of the power-ups and devour those pesky ghosts.
- Know Your Ghosts
In Pac-Man 256, not all ghosts are created equal. You’ll recognize the famous foursome of Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde, but also additional pests floating around the infinite board. Your ability to recognize these enemies and their signature abilities will oftentimes save Pac-Man’s life.
Easily outwit this foe by quickly changing direction, and whatever you do, avoid a footrace. Pinky is faster than Pac-Man and will quickly catch up to him.
Glitchy, on the other hand, first appears as a bunch of letters on the maze before materializing into his final form. Unless you ate a power pellet, keep your distance. The other ghosts are predictable. Some move randomly around the maze, while groups of four simply travel back and forth.
There’s more to worry about than ghosts. A huge glitch slowly rises from the bottom of the screen, forcing you to constantly move up through the maze. Think twice before backtracking.
- Credits Versus Play for Free
While chomping pac-dots, make a point to eat as many coins as possible. This virtual currency lets you upgrade power-ups. If you want an edge, Bandai Namco sells a coin doubler for $4.99, but simply playing the game Pac-Man 256 will give you enough loot without opening your wallet.
- Pick Your Power-ups
Pac Man 256 comes with 15 unique power-ups to give you an edge. The more you upgrade a power-up, the more expensive the process becomes. Better save those coins
Pac-Man 256 lets you continue for one credit upon death, but we think it’s a better idea to restart if you don’t have a lot of points. Don’t waste credits.
After eating a power pellet, go after as many ghosts as possible for even more points. Don’t worry if they start to flash. You still have a few seconds before they return to their original colors. On the other hand, don’t be greedy.
Remain in the center of the maze as much as possible. This gives you the maximum number of chances to escape ghosts and continue the pac-dot chain. Getting trapped on one of the edges is an easy way to die.
Warp paths (Pac-Man disappears on one side of the screen and then reappears on the other) may seem like a good idea, but remember ghosts use these as well, and may suddenly appear right before Pac-Man enters one. Most of the time this is a great way to lose enemies.
Always think at least two moves ahead. This is essential for eating 256 consecutive pac-dots and staying alive.
