Namco's Pac-Mania, one of my favorite arcade titles, is now available on the App Store -- just in time to help close out the franchise's 30th anniversary, which has already given us gems like Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Pac-Man Battle Royale, and, um, that 3D Pac-Man show.
As with the original Pac-Mania introduced in 1987, this iOS version tilts the maze to an isometric perspective and gives Pac-Man the ability to jump over ghosts. The game adds two new enemies, Funky and Spunky, who have jumping abilities, too.
This Pac-Mania edition features the arcade game's original 23 stages and a new Scramble Mode, in which players have 120 seconds to eat as many dots as possible, picking up speed with each dot consumed. It also adds leaderboards (via Game Center) and virtual pad/touch/flick controls.
You can grab Pac-Mania now for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad for just $1.99.
