Pac-Maze is a new stage, from the Pac-Man series, appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. It is the counterpart to the Pac-Land stage on the Wii U version of Smash 4. It is inspired by the worldly known iconic maze from the original Pac-Man arcade game.
Although this particular maze has never been in a Pac-Man game, it is heavily inspired from the main maze of the original Pac-Man arcade game. If someone consumes a Power Pellet, all enemies on the stage will become vulnerable and their color change to blue, and then they can be defeated by touching them, just as in the original game. This only happens for the character who eats it, meaning the other fighters can still be damaged by the enemies. If 100 pellets are collected, the rest of the pellets in the stage will be colored to suit the player who collected them.
A stage where you can collect Pac-Dots and defeat scared ghosts, just like in the original PAC-MAN! Eating enough Pac-Dots will nab you a Power Pellet, which boosts your abilities in all kinds of ways. Attacks in particular get about 1.7 times as strong! If an opponent earns a Power Pellet, you'd better destroy it before they grab it.
- PAC-MAN (Club Mix)
Pac-Man is an arcade game developed by Namco and distributed by Midway. In this game, you control Pac-Man, who must eat all the Pac-Dots and Power Pellets around the stage to move on to the next stage. If Pac-Man eats a Power Pellet, the ghosts become vulnerable, however when Pac-Man is in his normal state, he can be killed by the ghosts moving around the stage by simply touching them. There isn't an ending to Pac-Man, the end technically isn't an ending, but a glitch, the infamous Kill Screen, which glitches the stage, making it almost impossible to continue.
- Pac-Maze is one of two Smash 3DS stages (the other being Rainbow Road), and one of six Smash 4 stages overall to not appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
- It is also the only third-party stage to not appear in Ultimate.
