Guide Review - Review of Old-School Arcade Game 'Pac 'N Jump' on iPhone, iPod, iPad

Pac 'N Jump leans heavy on the mobile classic Doodle Jump, but it definitely is addictive in its own right. You have to move Pac-Man left or right as he leaps on trampoline platforms and gets as high as he can. Fall down too far or hit one of the ghosts, Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Sue, and the game's over. Power pellets make you invincible and high scores unlock new level themes, including Dig Dug and Galaga. The music has pitch perfect renditions of the original games and the visuals are big, bright, and fun. It is surprisingly addictive and worth a look.
