Namco has unleashed several Pac-Man games on the App Store over the last few years, and some just glom Pac's image onto an existing game premise--side-scrolling runner, puzzle-RPG, etc.--without much enthusiasm. Pac'n-Jump may be little more than a Doodle Jump clone in premise, but it's the rare exception to this trend in that it's not only super entertaining, but also arguably better than the popular game it so clearly mimics.
As in Doodle Jump, Pac'n-Jump finds you bopping ever upwards on platforms, tilting your device to keep him landing on solid ground and gobbling power-ups. There are a number of challenging additions, such as sections in which the platforms are swapped for tiny pellets, and the retro love is in full effect here, with pixel graphics and unlockable stages based on Dig Dug, Galaga, Mappy, and more. I hate to reward a lack of ambition, but Pac'n-Jump is just too much fun to ignore.
