Does it share the same control scheme as its predecessors?

I really have to disagree with this review.

I have Pac-Man for my iPod and it's not that difficult to use the control. Yes, it does take some getting used to not pressing the buttons but, rather, just touching them, but in the end, I found it made the game easier to play, especially for the faster levels.

I also disagree with the panning of Pac-Man's controls on the iPod. No, it isn't absolutely 100% perfect, but it is quite good. It does take getting use to, but you can get use to it. I haven't tried Ms. Pacman yet, but I intend to get it, because the most-played game on my iPod has been Pac-Man. It's a great game for the iPod because it's the kind of game you can play when you have a few spare minutes and your iPod handy.

I too was surprised that the controls take such a beating - I actually think they work really well, you just need to understand how to use them and they work more or less like a real joystick, albeit without the stick grin

What i DON'T like is that the game doesn't remember the volume setting - it just uses whatever setting you last used on the iPod in general - I often use it at full volume when connected to my car stereo - which means that if I forget to turn the volume down before starting a game I get my ears blasted full of the very harsh 8-bit soundtrack that really hurts my ears at full volume.

This seems to be the same in all iPod games - why do they have a volume setting in the games of it doesn't stick???
