i am changing the name of the title.
mostly for any legal issues down the track ( due to the name use of pacman worlds).
and before you go on about using the character, well, its a likeness and its been
done to death a thousand times before (but not as yet may i add).

anyway, i have altered the titlescreen so far to see how it sits with me, as i finalize some of the last bits before the game goes into beta.
lastest title here:

link to full size image: link
as i stated in the comments, and better ideas or thoughts that i like and go with will include you in the beta test. of course all Acoders are in anyway, but you're input is sought.
josh mentioned a subtitle, which isnt a bad idea.
a rought example: ...pac... "back one more time"

now im not adverse to changing the whole name to something different. so long as its good ( and not a current playstation title )

hmm...well i don't have any particular names right now, but instead of trying to name it after the "yellow ball", why not name it after what the game is about...for instance instead of pacman or pac call it "run-away" or "chase". ok these names suck, but you get my idea.
 
Acoders...great games...that simple!

Hmm. Well, if you change the game's name, that means that the original Pacman Worlds is forever going to exist on download and game review sites alongside the new version. That would be unfortunate.

(Incidently, was there only one version of the original Pacman Worlds released? I think the version I have isn't even finishable.)

But, if it's a copyright issue, I guess that's the way it's going to be. "...pac..." doesn't look right, though. Maybe Pac-It ? Pacus ? Pakmon? AC-man? FusMan ?

the original one is being removed where-ever i see it, and competing against myself.. hahah - i still come out the winner
this one wins hands down. and the version you have.. well, its finishable, but bloody hard.
this one atleast lets you save your progress along the way, and keep continuing, but soon as you enter your name in the hiscores, it resets back to the beginning. of course each time you continue, it will divide your score by that many times.
so a hiscore of 100,010 will beat someones score of 1,000,000 with 10 or more continues.

the ... pac ... is certainly not final btw, i just altered it to that while i work on other things, and finish the title off when something is worked out.

* t0nAd0 notices danjo won $300 on the "christmas list" scratch-and-win lottery ticket and steals it

As for a name, how about something like...uh... Namcap?
* t0nAd0 falls down on the ground like they do in mario RPG's when someone says something stupid

Do a random word search and pick a random word on a random page from that random search and repeat a random amount of times for a good title. How's that for a good idea?

Really? Sorry to digress, but I seem to recall that after collecting the hidden bonus gem in the Fire world, the game would get stuck and you would end up repeating that level over and over again.

yes, as i was going thru the game to sort out the new format, i noticed i had left another hidden gem in that world you refer to. if you missed that gem, you could still get it elsewhere. thats all changed now anyway.

this is getting closer to final so far.

progress report:
added many more secret areas & made the entrances more obvious.
about half way thru the last few levels.
multi-save slots complete now.
bombs included.
new pause buttons (multiple)
extra ghost types on later levels
many bug fixes.. i was suprised to find so many in the code as it was
new games screen and extra games
polished most gfx, and still going over some stuff further
changed a few exsisting levels around

theres a few extra things im adding, but remain secret for now, while i check them off my list. some easy things actually take quite a while to put in due to the size of this game now
