Pac In Time is a side scrolling platform game by Namco and features the world's most popular little yellow ball-shaped character ever made. As the story goes, Pac Man has been thrown into the whirlpool of time by an evil witch. The goal of the game is fairly simple - Pac Man must travel through five different worlds and retrieve all the small Pac-Pellets hidden within them. Unlike the original game, Pac Man can this time use four different super-powers (symbolized by large rotating rings), giving him various abilities : magic rope (green ring), fireballs (yellow ring), close range hammer (red ring) and the swim bubble (blue ring). Each ability needs to be strategically used to overcome traps and obstacles. For instance, the hammer can be used to break wood logs or rocks blocking the way or the rope to swing over deadly spikes or acid pools. Many enemies, including the trademark ghosts, obviously try to stop Pac Man in his quest. Thankfully, special power-pullets can be collected and used to defeat them in a typical Pac Man manner. However, all the other enemies have to be defeated with the hammer or by shooting fireballs at them. An exit door is hidden in every stage which only unlocks when all the Pac-Pellets are collected. A password is also given to the player every six levels or so to save his progress.

Pac In Time is a fun platform game but the more you play, the more you feel there's something missing to it. Graphics are really well drawn and the animation is rather decent and sometimes incredibly smooth and cartoonish. Every stage has something new to tickle the player's tastebuds and get him (or her) surprised. But stages end up being really predictable and rather long. Frankly, after a while, there is nothing to really motivates you to go any further, not even a boss. Then there is nothing more frustrating than finally reaching the exit door and to find out that there's still ONE single pullet left to collect somewhere in the level. You then have to go all the way back to the beginning of the stage in an attempt to find it. Pac In Time could have been an excellent game and is definitively fun at first, but it doesn't really have what it takes to keep gamers' interests in the long run...
