DescriptionPac-Man Dash! is a 2.5D side-scrolling endless platform runner with the 80's icon Pac-Man as the protagonist. The setting and the design for the characters are however based on the 2013 animated TV series Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. The game consists of five environments with multiple levels that are randomized in level design and item and enemy placement for each session. The goal is to run as long as possible until time runs out. The distances are added up after each run and contribute to a larger goal to unlock a new environment.
Pac-Man runs automatically and a virtual button in the bottom right corner is used to jump. Only a limited amount of time is provided. The amount of distance can be increased significantly by eating cookies, which look like the dots in the original arcade game, to make him run faster, and ghosts that can be caught for a time bonus. Ghosts fly away when Pac-Man appears and they can be caught quickly by using a dash button in the bottom left corner. Dash becomes accessible after filling up a meter by eating an amount of cookies. Dashing and jumping is also used to dive and cross platforms. The game has an endless vertical design as well. When Pac-Man falls down a gap, he never dies, but always ends up in another part of the level where the run continues.
In the main Mission mode Pac-Man needs to complete missions while running to progress, such as reaching a certain distance or catching a number of ghosts of a specific colour. Cookies can be used to unlock power-ups and new characters and transformations for Pac-Man, such as a flame or an ice version, Pac-Man with a giant tongue, or driving a pineapple tank. These come with additional perks. Certain characters open up new missions. There is also a Record challenge mode to get the best distance.
The game is free-to-play and uses a stamina system that decreases the number of lives each time a mission is played. Lives regenerate slowly. Special items such as permanent double cookies, unlocking the Pac-Mall stage, additional time and stamina recovery can be bought as in-app purchases with real money. Special items can be selected and equipped before starting a mission. There are daily bonuses based on a slot machine. The game allows players to scan the barcodes of a certain toys to unlock new items or sell them for cookies. The game can connect to Google Drive to store the save data.
