Pac-Man DX’s follow-up, taking its namesake from Capcom with Champion Edition, came out in November for the Live Arcade. and it’s already on sale for 50% off. At $10, it was already a steal, a brilliant take on the classic maze title and that genre as a whole. For $5, it’s flat-out robbery.
Champion Edition lets players munch down ghosts with frenzy, racking up huge combo strings as the poor suckers line-up for their doom. It’s sheer panic and chaos amidst multiple skins that evoke memories of all classic Pac-Man titles. If this isn’t in your Live Arcade cue yet, put it there. It’s worthy of sitting next to whatever other games you have in that list.
