    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.

  5. 5
    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

  9. 9
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    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.

  11. 11
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    These you can try, you can go over here to the different mazes, these mazes are $.99, or you can go into the shop
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    And then once the pause button is pressed, you can tap resume game, or abandon the game
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    I'm going to abandon the game, it says are you sure you want to abandon the game, and I've clicked yes
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    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
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    And then of course you can go back if that's what you want to do
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    It gives you a quick little instruction on how to play, and you can just go down and click start game
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
