Pac-Attack (パックアタック), known in some Japanese and European releases as Pac-Panic (パックパニック), is a puzzle game in the vein of Columns and Dr. Mario. It was adapted from Cosmo Gang the Puzzle, an arcade game released in the previous year.
Released by Namco, it features Pac-Man as the main playing pieces, with the Ghosts and blocks as obstacles.
The game was initially published in 1993 for the Genesis and Super NES. Game Gear and Game Boy versions followed in 1994. The Game Boy and Game Boy Color releases also feature a Super Game Boy enhanced color palette. Although Cosmo Gang the Puzzle was released to the arcades, there was never an arcade version of Pac-Attack. The game was also known as 'Pac-Man: Pac-Attack' and 'Pac-Panic'.
It has been re-released on various Namco video game compilations such as the Game Boy Color's Pac-Man: Special Color Edition, Namco Anthology 2, Pac-Man Collection, Pac-Man World 2, the PS2/Xbox/GameCube version of Namco Museum, and the downloadable Pac-Man Museum. The SNES version was re-released on the Wii's Virtual Console download service in North America on January 14, 2008, with a European release following on June 27, 2008. It was released on the latter release for the Wii U Virtual Console on February 26, 2015.
