Pac-Man makes the leap to real life thanks to Pac-Man GEO

Pac-Man in your city

Pac Man GEO

The idea is great. Taking advantage of the 40th anniversary of Pac-Man, Bandai Namco has announced the launch of Pac-Man GEBox, a version that is based on geographic information from around the world to place the famous Pac-Man on the streets of your city, so you will have to move through the streets to get as many balls as possible.

How does it work?

The game relies on geographic information to represent the maps of more than 170 regions of all the world. Thus, your current location would be represented with the Pac-Man doll, and you would only have to walk to get new balls as you go.

Of course, do not forget that the ghosts will be circulating through the streets to end your game, although we do not know exactly how they will work (we would love to see a way in which you can take the role of ghost and go after those clueless players).

Exercise thanks to video games

Again, this would be a great example showing that with the right idea it is possible to take video games to a new level where the user is able to exercise while playing. And it is that we already imagine large groups willing to do walks of several kilometers in order to get the highest possible score.

Pokémon GO managed to create the fashion of going out to look for pokémons in the corners of each city, and everything indicates that Pac-man could achieve something similar with this fun proposal. Of course, let’s hope that it does not produce such curious events as those that already happened with Pokémon.

When can it be played?

At the moment the game is in the registration phase, so you must go to the App Store or Google Play to sign up and receive the corresponding notification as soon as it is available. At the moment there is no stipulated date for the launch, so for now you will have no choice but to warm up your legs until the game begins.

These are the download links to each of the stores where you can register:
