Retro redux Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ now $5 on Steam

Steam's Daily Deal has just knocked 50 percent from the price of Namco Bandai's hit Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+, granting the revived incarnation of the pellet-chomping arcade classic a $5 price tag.

If you've ever played Pac-Man you're already familiar with the basics of Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+. Navigate a maze, avoid ghosts, eat pellets - you know the drill. Where the new game differentiates itself is in its novel tweaks to the classic formula. Players are given all manner of options to change the core Pac-Man experience, from slowing down time when you run too close to a dangerous ghost, to changing the stage to resemble something out of Dig Dug. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ is less a modern Pac-Man sequel and more a remix of its central concepts mated with the technology of today.

To take advantage of this discount, simply visit the Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ page on Steam and purchase the game before Friday, February 14 at 10AM. After that time, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ returns to its standard $10 price point.
