Eat the world right from your smartphone or tablet with Pac-Man CE DX.

Get ready to spend your time chomping dots and eating ghosts with this amazing version of arcade classic Pac-Man, one of the most recognizable games of the past 35 years.

Designed by the original Pac-Man creator Tōru Iwatani, Championship Edition (CE) came out for the Xbox 360 in 2007, and it was the best ever remake of the arcade original.

Now Pac-Man CE DX, an improved version of the game that released onto Xbox 360 in 2010, is here for your iPhone or Android smartphone, and I’m betting you’ll spend some serious time playing it.

Pac-Man CEDX got an Editor’s Choice award as well as a 10/10 score over at IGN when it came out for consoles, so you know the mobile version, priced at $4.99 with no foolish free-to-play nonsense, will be something fantastic.

Pac-Man’s maze has been neon-ified, and the techno music increases in intensity as you get farther and farther into the various 132 stages across 10 unique zone levels in the game.

Seriously, if you’ve ever loved a game of Pac-Man, you’ll love this update, which both honors and extends the classic arcade experience from 1980. Grab it in iTunes or Google Play right now and get ready to rock yourself through some amazing video gaming.
