Pac-Man Collection is a collection of four (five in the Japanese version) Pac-Man-related games for the Game Boy Advance, developed by Mass Media, and published by Namco in the United States on July 12, 2001, in Europe on December 7 of that same year, and in Japan on January 11, 2002. On June 11, 2014, this compilation was re-released on the Wii U Virtual Console via the Nintendo eShop in Japan (without Ms. Pac-Man included in Pac-Man Arrangement) and the United States, and in Europe and Australia on June 12.

This compilation includes the following games with minor feature changes:

  • Pac-Man: The original game with two viewing choices. Press A button for "Full Screen Mode", or B button for "Scroll Mode". In the latter, you can use L button and R button to view the maze's top and bottom halves. Due to changes in AI, many of the known paths to successfully clear each level in the arcade game will not work in this version.
  • Pac-Mania: This is the Japanese arcade version. However, three of the songs have been cut down and the Jungly Steps song is replaced by a reprise of the cut-down Block Town theme.
  • Pac-Attack: This is the Sega Genesis version, excluding "Versus Mode". The usual Puzzle Mode music is not present for that mode, and is replaced by a cut-down version of Normal Mode's music. Also, the name entry in Normal Mode and the end credits from Puzzle Mode are not featured.
  • Pac-Man Arrangement: This is the US arcade version, as evidenced by Blinky's and Clyde's names being mistakenly swapped upon the title screen. The second player's fluorescent green Pac-Man, the end-of-game bonuses, and the name entry were removed. The Japanese version also features Ms. Pac-Man, as a hidden game.
