Play Pacman on Android
Edited by Grimm, Margiebell, Eng, Jen M
Hi, you are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to download and install the classic PacMan arcade game on your Android Smartphone.
You can use any Android phone you like, as long as you are able to connect to the Google Play Store.
For our demonstration, we are using a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Duos. You can use any Android phone you like though. To start with, you are going to have to tap on the Google Play Store.
It is a white briefcase looking icon here.
If you don't have the Google Play Store or you are running a modified operating system, you can simply tap on the Apps button which is here.
And that will take you to your apps window and you should be able to find the Google Play Store icon there.
Tap one time, that will open up the Google Play Store.
You could go directly to games, but what we are going to do is search. We're going to type in Pac man.
Tap on PacMan, look for the big, yellow PacMan guy with the little PacMan plus tournaments.
Tap on that.
That's going to open up the PacMan window.
You are going to want to tap on install which will be the button over here.
Once it's installed, we are going to tap on open.
As you can see on mine, I have already installed it, just so you don't have to sit through my download.
Then, it will self-install, and you can simply tap open.
When you tap open, or you tap on the PacMan icon in your system, it will open the game, and you'll see the Bandai Namco logo.
You'll see Pac man, with the little ghosts running around the bottom. Bonus points for anyone who can name the ghosts without cheating, if you actually know them. Here we are on the screen, tap the screen to get started, it's that simple.
You can just start off by tapping play, or you can go to mazes, If you tap on mazes, you can buy different mazes, they are for sale.
These are free mazes right here.
As you can see here, it says buy these mazes, $1.99, but we're not going to do that.
So it says purchase failed.
These you can try, you can go over here to the different mazes, these mazes are $.99, or you can go into the shop.
You can buy different tokens, you can get the ad-free game for a month, or forever if you choose.
You can tap back, then back again.
You can play the classic game, just standard start off, the way it works is very simple, you swipe to move in the direction that you want.
See, I'm swiping down, I'm swiping to the right.
Now, for those of you who are not very familiar with how to play PacMan, and start off playing it and find it frustrating, you can just stop.
You can just sit like I've done, and then you can move the PacMan, and get these little pieces. It makes playing the game a little bit easier, depending on your preferences. I'm not or ever have been an expert at the game, but I have always had fun playing it. To exit out, just press the pause button.
And then once the pause button is pressed, you can tap resume game, or abandon the game.
I'm going to abandon the game, it says are you sure you want to abandon the game, and I've clicked yes.
So that's how you exit out of the PacMan system, you can also see the trophies, and you can also tap and select your settings.
Your controls can be swipe, you can change it to joystick, you can have sensitivity, medium, high, low, you can have easy, normal, or original level difficulty.
This is actually pretty hard. And there's the help button.
And then of course you can go back if that's what you want to do.
When you tap play up here,
It gives you a quick little instruction on how to play, and you can just go down and click start game.
Now it's going to start you out on your 7 levels here, this is the leader of the ghosts, his favourite maze, we've got 1 out of 1 free plays to try this maze.
Once you try it, if you like it, you can purchase it if not, then you can switch back to the classic game, and you don't have to worry about purchasing particular mazes or trying particular areas. Anyway, it's a lot of fun and its free, when you play it the right way.
Thank-you very much, hopefully you will enjoy the PacMan game, and we'll look forward to seeing you in some of our other how-to and helpful videos on VisiHow.
