    Quite possibly the best arcade game for the iPhone, Pac-Man CE is a trippy, addictive drug.

    Succeeds in making this brilliant arcade formula seem fresh and new once again. And that's a truly impressive feat.

    It's close but no cigar when compared to the 5 star Space Invaders Infinity Gene. PMCE looks, sounds and plays fantastically… but, had it included online leader-boards and multiplayer, it could have been contender for best Arcade game on the AppStore.

    Pac-Man CE is definitely an admirable effort, but there are enough caveats to make it lose a bit of its luster. The controls are responsive to a degree, but get questionable when things get too fast. The graphics are clean, but on the small side.

    Namco's microtransaction strategy with Pac-Man: Championship Edition is offensive. You have a dead-end link -- Challenge mazes -- right off the main menu. To ask the player for money mere seconds after charging for the initial download is a slap in the face.

    In addition, the developers made the play area much too small, to the point that you may need to bring the iPhone close to your face to view the action.
