In each level, players can jump on and over platforms, defeat or avoid enemies, and pick up a variety of collectible items. Players will also need to watch out for obstacles during stages, like spikes. Pac-Man has a variety of abilities, such as the ability to perform a “Butt Bounce” that can help him reach high platforms as well as defeat enemies.

In addition to these 3D platforming stages, the game features a Maze Mode that allows players to complete a series of 3D mazes inspired by the original Pac-Man arcade game. In each maze, players must collect all of the dots in the maze while avoiding ghosts.

Finally, once players complete the game, they’ll unlock the game’s “Original Mode,” which is a recreation of the original game.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. While the game is family-friendly, it doesn’t feature traditional voice acting, so players will need to know how to read to follow along with the text subtitles and tutorials.
