IGN writes: "Pac-Man Remix is a huge step up from the original arcade port of Pac on the iPhone. Why? Because it takes some of the constraints (and strengths) of the platform in mind. Slowing the game down helps offset the lack of 100-percent precise controls. I think the controls will still frustrate some players despite the substantial improvements, and admittedly, I gnashed my teeth a few times as Pac ran into a ghost while I desperately swiped to change course. The new gadgets and bosses make the game feel fresher, too (although not as fresh as the recently announced Pac-Man Championship Edition for iPhone, which is an astounding game on XBLA)".
