Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Pacman will always be remembered as a classic game and one that shaped what today's gaming is. The game makes an appearance on almost every platform known to man and Android phones are no exception.

Anyone with an android phone can download NAMCO's classic arcade game and immediately begin ingesting small yellow dots and running away from ghosts. The game is exactly the same as its arcade counterpart with the same graphics, sounds and experience. The game is controlled, at least on the Nexus One, using either swipes, the accelorometer, or the trackball. For once, I think I have found a use for the trackball. It is by far the easiest way to control pacman as the other ways don't really seem as responsive.

Even though this game is by far one of the most popular games of all time in arcades, I still can't recommend it in good conscience. The app is being sold for an absolutely ridiculous price for the game that it is providing. At the time of this review, users would have to spend over 5 dollars to experience Pacman on their phone which is a rip off in my opinion. With other great games being offered for cheaper, you would be paying for the name more than the game. Check it out and see for yourself.
