PostSubject: Thoughts on Pac-Man   Mon Sep 22, 2014 8:10 am

Having not attended the locations where the new characters were available, I dived into the newcomers with my friend almost immediately. I played all of them except Klonoa so far, but one that really caught my attention more than any of them was Pac-Man. Not because of his appearance or anything, but there is a lot of strange ideas encompassed in his moveset.

First of all, I'm not one hundred percent sure what his Neutral-B is supposed to accomplish (Although I obviously understand what it's supposed to represent). All I remember is that I believe it possessed a superarmor property and that the aerial version put you into freefall.

The Up and Side special are fine, both very useful and very fun to use.

But... the Down Special? I find this attack weird as all I have to do is walk up to an opponent, use it, and it auto-combos depending on which version I use. It has decent knockback, too. I understand what this move represents as well but just... why? I can't really finger out any weaknesses to the attack besides maybe the startup, or maybe a whiff.

Everything else seems pretty alright. Give me some feedback, I want to see what these moves are supposed to be used for.

Neutral special breaks a shield instantly.

Not sure if down special's changed since I last balanced it, but it's very unsafe on shield, and easily shielded because of startup.

You can also simply jump over a down b, and then punish afterward.

Down special is suposed to be a counter, not a reliable one, for that matter, but it's not completely useless. It may have armor, thought im not sure

Doesn't exactly work that way since it auto targets the opponent when within range.

Okay, I was wondering what was so good about the neutral special. So it's kind of a Jiggly-pound type deal?

As for the Down-Special, I just wanted to make sure I was using it right, because it seemed like it was a go-to move for any scary situation. I soon learned that this was only true against CPU players, because when my friend mirror matched me, I got punished like crazy.

Thanks guys! Hope this new update will bloom with more surprises!

Just out of curiosity, from which game does Pac-Man's victory theme originate from?

Pac-Man Arrangement, my personal favorite game of the franchise. It's the stage complete theme.

Ah, I see. It's like a sped up version. Btw that game is the bomb! Smile

EDIT: Wait nvm it's exactly the same. Huh, remembered it a bit different back then.

After reading, We're still not sure as to what exactly down-special does, or just me if someone can explain in novice terms. From the look of it, it's nothing special with some combo slapping. Am hoping it's more than just that.

I am unsure why this topic wasn't mentioned at all yet.

Pac-man is a weird character gameplay-wise.

Because I made this thread almost two weeks prior to that one. But on that note, this thread can probably be locked now.

In my opinion pacman should have the same moveset like in smash bros. wiiu/3ds.
I really like the moveset.

Doesn't Pac-Man discussion belong in the official characters thread?

I agree, but I don't. Razz I really like the SSBC Side B and especially Up B. Down B is fun as well. I do like some of Pac-Man's normals in SSB4 though, such as the ones involving the ghosts (even if canonically they don't make much sense).

Im aware of that, but now the thread does exist. Therefore this thread should be locked and discussion should be moved to the appropriate place.
