Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (SNES)
Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (AKA Hello! Pac-Man – ハロー! パックマン in Japan) is a 2D side-scrolling adventure / puzzle video game sequel to Pac-Man, developed and published by Namco for the SNES console in 1994. However, this game incorporates light point-and-click game elements rather than being a simple maze game. You can play it in single-player mode on SNES.
The game starts by introducing the family of Pac-Man. Thus, you play as the husband and father Pac-Man, and getting milk for the baby is your first mission. As usual, your enemies are the ghosts who want to catch Pac-Man (you).
The 2D graphics are a bit outdated even for the SNES, but the graphics for this game are great. The animations are smooth, the levels are colorful, and Pac-Man shows fantastic impressions.
Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures is so easy to play, but the whole thing becomes boring in the end. At times, you may wish you can control Pac-Man rather than guiding him.
The background music is the best part of the game’s audio. A cheerful fast symphony plays when Pac-Man is glad, but the music changes into something sad and slow when he is sad or depressed. The background music will depend on his mood. The sound effects are like the sounds of famous cartoons, but the voices of Pac-Man and other characters are annoying. You will hear a bothersome voice throughout the game.
You get a slingshot in this game that you can fire at places where you want Pac-Man to look at and go. Getting used to it is hard but not impossible. Every action of Pac-Man depends on his attitude. You should keep him happy because he will not do anything when he is sad. The happier he is, the more responsive he will be.
Apart from that, Pac-Man will face different challenges, and the missions do vary in difficulty. Some missions are too easy while others are extremely hard. The game has only 5 big levels, but you can finish them after several minutes.
This game for SNES is worth trying. Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures boasts some great things: its graphics, the story, and many more. The game is great in general.
Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures game has been ported to SNES (this version), Sega Genesis, Virtual Console (Wii U).
