Hello! Pacman is an unusual action/adventure game by Namco. The Pac Man family, including the cute Pac-Man baby, are quietly resting at home and enjoying their everyday life and Pac Man sets out to fulfill various tasks for them. Interestingly, the player doesn't directly control Pac Man but influences his decision-making and watches out for him. A slingshot can be used to hit anything on the screen (including Pac Man himself) and to call for his attention. Another action gets the player to shout at our yellow hero and ask him to look at something, or in a particular direction. This is especially useful if Pac Man decides to aimlessly wander around the screen or when he starts walking in the wrong direction. Pac Man's mood is also important and should be taken care of. Finally, and not the least, a limited amount of power-pellets can be thrown at him - they turn him into a fearless and ghost-gobbler Super Pac-Man. But these super-pellets should only be used in case of an emergency and especially when the trademark ghosts decide to attack. The game features four different quests, tons of mini-games, side quests (such as game cartridges that unlock the original Ms PacMan game) and other unique treats.
