Surprised I didn't find this sooner; the Pac really IS back.
I guess it's accurate to the Pac-Man World games with the Butt Bounce and Flip Kick. However I guess for what it is, it somehow feels basic? You only really get three moves (the Butt Bounce, Flip Kick and Rev-Roll which is kinda just a spindash with a coat of paint) and while that's fine, that's all Pac has which ultimately only covers one small part of his history. I understand that of course he's not going to have a massive moveset; the only reason someone like Mario does is because of how many 3D games he's had and even just platformers in general (since Mario is a platformer series after all).
However I expected something reaching to most aspects of Pac-Man like the classic Arcades or that whole Ghostly Adventures thing; hell, not even his moveset needs to be changed: rings could be replaced by pellets when Pac-Man's played as, and the Invincibility monitors could be replaced by Power Pellets that play the iconic jingle (and makes enemies tinted blue). Just extra little things.
What I will say is that with the Butt Bounce, Pac-Man seems to have been given a Momentum mod built into the move as if you use it on a slope he zooms across. It's honestly really fun to just zip past. The optional health system and included model are also really nice inclusions and tie the character together.
TLDR: 4/5. Simple to get the hang of, fun once you know how to control him. Advice: Try to take more from different areas of his home series. Great mod either way and all around. Get all those Chaos Emeralds!
This is a pretty solid Pac-Man! Because of how much of the original games I played, I feel right at home playing him with his this move set. The Rev-roll being usable at any point while grounded is such a handy thing too!
The only problems I have is that you tend to hurt yourself too often if you try to kick an enemy while going too fast, or that your Butt-bounce continues to slam into the floor if you hit an enemy with it. Otherwise, It was an absolute blast playing him and grabbing all the emeralds! I highly recommend him.
This is a fun character to play as. It's amazingly faithful to the Pac-Man World games as well!
The only issue I've encountered is Super Pac-Man's mask clipping through his face when using the 3D models. His mask and cape tend to flicker when Super Pac-Man is moving, but this is a really minor thing and doesn't really affect my enjoyment of the character.
Thank you for bringing him back! And even better than before, now I can get spoiled up with this version. Then go back to the 2.1 that may have had derpy sprites, but had so much annoying problems.
Your abilities are great! They are the better version than 2.1's, I'm super happy that you gave him infinite butt bounces and moved it to jump. Pac in 2.1 not having a double jump ability was so annoying! Especially if you had the whirlwind shield with you. A small problem I have is not getting power spring when performing butt bounce on a spring, otherwise very fun. Your new ability is amazing and balance, you get a smaller range than the insta-sheild but get to use it more than once. As for the spindash, I feel like while preforming it he should be able to take a hit. Though thats pretty much it, thanks to his speed, I won't have to rant about how slow he is and how I feel forced to use the spindash every time to gain speed.
Finally... Pac man has a super form... Thank you! He looks so cute when he does go super. Awesome work on his appearance, speaking of that...
**Your model is SOOOO cute**
I just love how he turned out in general, but the model is amazing. Outstanding work!
