Pac-Man World Re-Pac is one of those handy games that tells you when your game is 100% complete! That being said, the game doesn’t quite tell you how to 100% complete it, so it can be a little bit tricky. On every platform but the Nintendo Switch, you simply have to finish all of the game’s associated achievements. However, the Switch version doesn’t have achievements, so the requirements are slightly different. We’re going to go over all of them, so let’s get started!
If you’re playing this game and aiming to fully complete it, you can breathe a sigh of relief — it won’t take you more than 10 hours or so. At first glance, these tasks seem tricky, but Re-Pac’s level design is a bit dated. This means that after playing a few levels, you’ll start to get a feel for where the P-A-C-M-A-N letters are hidden.
- Clear the game’s story mode and beat every level. This includes bosses, too! This part is self-explanatory, and with the game’s built-in Easy Mode you shouldn’t have too much trouble.
- Save all six of Pac-Man’s family members. There’s one member per area, and some require keys hidden in other levels. If you’re going for 100% completion anyway, you’ll have to pick these up regardless. Pac-Man’s family will also give you health boosts in the final boss battle, which helps out a ton.
- Collect all six P-A-C-M-A-N letters in each level. As mentioned before, this winds up being self-explanatory. The letters usually require a fruit from later on in the level, and then you’ll have to backtrack to get the letter. Having never played this game before, I didn’t have much trouble tracking them all down!
- Beat all of the game’s mazes at least once, including Marathon Mode. You can access these from the starting area on the world map. I’d recommend playing through each world’s set of mazes after you finish each world’s set of platforming levels to help break up the repetition. Marathon mode is rough because it takes quite some time, but you at least don’t have to worry about running out of lives. They’re very easy to get in this game!
- Obtain a total score of at least 765,000 points. In doing this, you’ll claim the Magic Key, which lets you open fruit doors without their corresponding fruit. If you’ve finished the other tasks listed here and are still coming up short, try replaying levels with the intent of getting the highest score possible. You can also try replaying boss levels and eating more of the fruits and dots that spawn in the level.
That last requirement actually wasn’t present in the original Pac-Man World game — it’s new this time around, for some reason. If you’re able to complete all the tasks listed above, congratulations — you’ve gone and done it! The game is now 100% complete, so you can move right on to the next one. Unless…
The great thing about playing Pac-Man World Re-Pac on Switch is that you don’t have an official list of achievements to complete. on other platforms, you have to play slots 100 times, defeat 100 enemies with Rev Rolls, and do all sorts of other things that otherwise can’t be tracked. Most of all, though, you have to…
- Clear round 9 of the original Pac-Man game. This can be tracked in the Switch version, in a sense, as the high score is saved. This definitely isn’t necessary for 100% completion, but if you really want to do everything this game has to offer, you may as well give it a shot.
This last task is pretty much pointless, if I’m being honest, but I decided to include it just in case. Again, if you’re playing any other version of Pac-Man World Re-Pac that isn’t the Switch one, your 100% completion requirements are technically getting all of the achievements in the game.
