Phone

Early advertisement for Pac-Man on flip-style phones.

In the mid-2000s, upon the rise of mobile cell phones, Namco began work on several Pac-Man mobile games. The original became one of the most popular mobile games at the time according to an interview [1], and in addition to ports of other Pac-Man and Namco titles, many Pac-Man spinoffs were released exclusively for mobile devices. Many have fallen into obscurity (with a few becoming cult classics), and most are lost and currently unplayable in any form.

Ports

These games are ports of already existing Pac-Man games.

  • Pac-Man (1980) - Released on nearly all mobile devices.

(There are likely several other releases not documented here. As of now, these are the only known titles.)

Original Games (iOS/Android)

These more recent titles are more in-depth than the flip phone titles, and are, for the most part, still accessible in some form. A few games, like Pac-Man 256, are considered to be some of the best in the Pac-Man series. They are also often handled by other companies, unlike the previous titles, which were all developed exclusively by Namco.

  • Letter Labyrinth: Pac-Man Edition
  • PAC-Match Party - Sequel to PAC-Match! released for Pac-Man's 30th anniversary.
  • =10 - Believed to be a clone of Add 'Em Up. Originally thought to have been a bootleg title, but appeared in a list on the official Pac-Man website [2].
  • Pac-Man Reborn - Appears to be a Tomadachi-like virtual pet game. Japan-only release.
  • Pac-Chain - A unique puzzle game. Some lists refer to a sequel called Pac-Chain Compact, but nothing else about it is known.
  • Pac 'N Jump - Clone of Doodle Jump. The levels are based off of other Namco arcade games.
  • Pac-Chomp! - Another Bejeweled clone.
  • PAC-MAN GAMES - Ports of the Facebook versions of Namco games to iOS.
  • Pac-Man Kart Rally - Loosely based on Pac-Man World Rally.

  • Pac 'N Twit - Involves Twitter in some form. Japan-only release.
