Pac-Man Geo Turns Real World Geographic Data into New Levels


Remember that dangerously addictive Google Maps Easter Egg a few years ago, which allowed you to turn virtually any set of street data into a new Pac-Man challenge? Well, Bandai Namco Entertainment has turned it into a game for your iOS or Android smart device, which can be downloaded right now.

Pac-Man Geo Turns Real World Geographic Data into New Levels 1

Titled PAC-Man Geo, gamers in over 170 regions can turn the streets of real world cities, towns and other locales into fresh Pac-Man levels. Claiming to use “detailed maps of famous cities”, PAC-MAN can navigate the cities-turned-mazes while avoiding Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clide. Power pellets will also be placed on the map, enabling PAC-MAN to turn the tables on the pesky ghosts.

PAC-MAN Geo is available to download for free via the iOS App Store and Android Google Play Store. While the game is free to download, it is supported by ads.

PAC-MAN GEO is breaking the traditional concept of the PAC-MAN maze and allows PAC-MAN to be played in real locations around the world for the first time ever in its 40 year history. As PAC-MAN continues to celebrate his 40th anniversary in 2020, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment is finding ever more innovative and fun ways to create new PAC-MAN experiences for fans young and old to play. We hope PAC-MAN GEO will be another example of a memorable collaboration with Google Maps and one fans will enjoy immensely.
