Pac-Man 2 – The New Adventures (Sega Genesis) game description
Join Pac-Man in a side scrolling adventure where you must guide him through Pac-Land, solving puzzles and finding objects in order to defeat the evil Ghost Witch of Nentor. You don’t control Pac-Man himself, as you must show him where to go and what to look for, while using the slingshot to knock over and find items or open doors and defeat bad guys before Pac-Man bumps into them.
You can collect items you find along the paths from Pac-Man’s house in the inventory and use them for a later day.
Pac-Man 2’s puzzles also depart from the standard mold of inventory, logic and physics puzzles typical of most point-and-clicks. Instead, solutions to puzzles often depend on managing Pac-Man’s wildly different moods. Pac-Man’s mood can change in response to what he encounters in his environment, or the actions the player takes; for example, shooting down an apple for Pac-Man to eat will make him happier, whereas shooting him on the head will gradually enrage him.
There are other moods as well, such as sadness and fear, each with varying intensities. Making Pac-Man too happy, for example, will make him smug, which makes him braver, but also much more rude and less cooperative. While negative moods can often make progression difficult and can be difficult to change, sometimes these moods can be needed to progress in the game.
Throughout the game, Pac-Man is occasionally harassed by Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde, the recurring ghosts of the Pac-Man series. When he encounters them, Pac-Man becomes paralyzed by fear and eventually faints, unless he is fed a power pellet by the player, of which 3 can be held at a time.
If he eats one, Pac-Man becomes Super Pac-Man for a brief time and flies across the screen, eating any ghosts he sees. In some cases, the ghosts may be guarding important objects needed to progress.
