Pac-Man is back in an all-new adventure! His friends have all been captured by the nefarious ghosts, and it’s up to you to guide Pac-Man through the ghosts’ castle and rescue them! PAC-MAN Friends is a simple, maze like arcade game that resembles the old PAC-MAN games. Collect all the pellets and rescue Pac-Man’s friends! We’ll help you navigate the castle with our PAC-MAN Friends cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide.
Pac-Man and his friends are counting on you, so let’s get started with our PAC-MAN Friends tips and tricks guide.
1. Eat the pellets in a quick manner!
The tiny pellets award you 10 points each, but if you eat them consecutively they are worth more for each pellet you eat. You lose this bonus though if you take too long to eat another pellet. Therefore, once you see a row of pellets, try to straighten yourself out so that you can eat them all in one go for the maximum amount of points!
2. Change the control settings to your liking!
This game offers many modes of control, but the default is tilt controls. The interesting thing here is that there are about four different modes of tilt control, all of which correspond to how you’re holding your iDevice. Tilt controls are okay, but they’re a little too slow for my liking. You can try increasing the sensitivity, but I still prefer to set the controls to the joystick option. The d-pad option is a little finicky, so joystick gives me a little more precision. Experiment and see which one you like the best!
3. Utilize your invisible Pac-Man!
On the seventh level, you’ll rescue the invisible Pac-Man! He can go through ghosts unharmed, so he’s very useful for grabbing pellets that are guarded or too risky to get with a normal Pac-Man. Some levels will even require you to use his invisibility powers, so get used to maneuvering him around!
4. Confirm your star objectives before you start!
At the beginning of each level, you are given a list of three objectives you need to achieve to get all three stars on a level. They vary from level to level, but unlike other objective-based games, you don’t actually need to do a specific set of things in order to get the stars. For example, some levels require you to reach a certain score threshold. While this means that grabbing fruit would be helpful, it is not a strict requirement, as if you beat the level fast enough and maybe eat some ghosts along the way, you’ll already reach the score criteria. When you know what you need to do, you can be a lot more efficient!
5. If you need to, redo levels to earn the rest of stars!
If it’s too hard, you don’t need to try to get all three stars in one go. I find it easier to knock off any of the requirements that involve time first, such as the conditions where you need to beat the level under a certain time limit or you need to achieve a certain score (your score is constantly draining, so the longer you take, the lower your score will naturally be). Once you take care of those, the rest of the objectives can be done at your own speed, so you can take your time.
Control Pac-Man carefully and reach those high scores! If you have any other questions or suggestions, leave a comment below.
