Pac-Man World 2 (パックマンワールド2, Pakkuman Wārudo Tsū) is a video game by Namco USA for Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, and Microsoft Windows released in 2002. Like the original Pac-Man World, the player controls the character of Pac-Man in a 3D platform game.
The player begins with six lives. The game has 25 levels and 16 Galaxian mazes in six different environments. The plot involves Pac-Man finding five golden fruits that were stolen by ghosts. These fruits were vital to his town. Pac-Man must sometimes fight and defeat enemies in order to progress. At the end of each area is a boss. The boss is always a ghost in a giant machine (the fifth machine holds all four ghosts), excluding the final boss. There are many items to collect in this game including fruit, the traditional dots, and tokens. Each of the levels has eight tokens, as well as a single bonus token for achieving one-hundred percent completion on the level and another bonus token for completing the time trial. Because there are nineteen non-boss levels, and because the Pac-Village doesn't have a time trial, the player has to beat every part of the game with one-hundred percent completion except for possibly the last level if you accumulate one-hundred-eighty-nine tokens. Galaxians, which show up once in most non-boss levels, transport Pac-Man into a three-dimensional maze, akin to the classic arcade games. Not all levels contain all of the collectible items, nor do they contain the same number of each.
The tokens unlock old Pac-Man incarnations in the arcade in Pac-Village. Critics have described these games as "perfect emulations". These unlockable "emulations" are Pac-Man, Pac-Attack (The updated version from the Japanese Namco Anthology 2), Pac-Mania, and Ms. Pac-Man. Also unlockable is a jukebox, which enables the player to listen to the game's soundtrack, as well as a gallery of concept art. However, the GBA version doesn't have any arcade games, despite listing them in its copyrights when loaded.
After completing any non-boss level, the player can attempt a time trial. The goal is to work through the level as quickly as possible after hitting the stopwatch at the beginning. Various clocks have been scattered throughout the level where items used to be. Collecting these clocks allows the player to recover the indicated number of seconds by stopping the clock; however, time clocks will not accumulate, sometimes making it better to skip a "2" clock less than two seconds after hitting a "4" clock. Unlike the standard game mode, the player must start the level over from the beginning if Pac-Man dies at any point in the time trial.
Only the PlayStation 2 version of Pac-Man World 2 was localized for release in Japan. The difficulty in this version has been drastically decreased, compared to the North American and European versions. Certain levels have been abridged, including "Into The Volcano" and "Volcanic Panic", while bosses have only half of their original health.
