Two long awaited games for retro fans appeared in the App Store tonight. Both Pac-Man Remix [$5.99] and Q-Bert Deluxe [$1.99] are now available for purchase.

Q*Bert Deluxe


[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

Q*Bert Deluxe offers both classic Q*Bert as well as one with modernized graphics. This release also contains a new Jungle theme with brand new boards. There is an ongoing discussion in our forums.

Pac-Man Remix

While Namco had already released the classic version of Pac-Man [$5.99 / Lite] in the early days of the App Store, this newest release is a modernized version of the original. Pac-Man Remix offers enhanced graphics, boss battles, extra gadgets and power-ups across its stages. There is also a discussion in our forums by early adopters of the game.

We'll take a closer look at both of these titles later today.

    Namco must be really desperate to pull this game out at 5.99$, just as they did with the first Pacman for iPhone released some time ago.

    I am a fan of Pacman but to tell you the truth, I think it's not fair of Namco
    to ask 5.99$ for a game that was popular back 30 years ago, It's just cheap if you ask me... and works somewhere on a level "Let's milk this cow some more".

    Way more interesting games than this one exist in AppStore and deserves more attention.

    People are doing that with other super old games like Doom and Wolfenstien.

    I'd get Pac Man Remix, but it's a bit too pricey for my tastes. Q*Bert is a steal at that price!
    Why'd you have to bring up Doom, WeirdingWay? That port can't get to the App Store soon enough!

    Bought Q*Bert, seriously thinking about Pac Man Remix. But look, Namco, dudes, you've been making good lately, really, but there's one thing that want to know: Where the frak is my Super Pac-Man? C'mon, that's the only Pac-Man left to port to the iPhone that matters! (Except maybe Pac Man Jr. or Baby Pac-Man complete with a video pinball segment, but Super Pac first. Priorities!)

    Personally, I like the original PacMan better than the remixed flavor, but then I'm old enough to have played the original PacMan in the arcades in the early 80s. I can't see spending $6 for either the original or remixed version, however.

  • Colbertj

    Maybe it's just me, but the 'modern' sure could have received a bit more attention in Q-bert...

    I'm really enjoying Pac-Man Remix. The controls take some getting used to and THEY COULD use some work, but it's not that bad. I'm pleased with this purchase.

  • Phoenixfury

    I'm torn on getting Pac-Man remix, but I do have the original Pac-Man and I love it! I just bought Q*Bert and I am loving that one too. Now my only disappointment is Nintendo has not and likely will not get in on the retro fun. Donkey Kong on my Touch will probably never legally happen.

    • Ataru

      The DS is the most popular handheld console in the world, and Nintendo haven't let their prized properties onto other platforms for many, many years.

      The only way you'll see a Nintendo title on an iPhone, is if you jailbreak it and run an emulator.

    I'll be very surprised if they ever did. The iPhone is competition for the DS and Nintendo has openly stated such.

    hmmm just played it and I'm so far not very convinced. The controls are just not good enough which ruins a lot of joy, at least for me.
