Changes

Notice Pac-Man now makes sounds when he is launched far enough (the damage SFX from Pac-Man World and when he is Star/Screen K.Oed (the iconic death SFX, which is a direct rip from the death sound from Super Pac-Man).

Buff New down aerial, the "butt-bounce" move that first appeared in Pac-Man World. Along with meteor smashing opponents, the move can bounce off of almost everything, following it up with another attack once the opponent gets up after being hit from the move.

Nerf Pac-Man's grab, while having slightly more range and less start-up lag, has even longer ending-lag, making it even more punishable.

Buff Pac-Man's forward and up throw are stronger in terms of damage.

Notice Pac-Man's down throw chomps are slightly weaker.

Notice Key from the Bonus Fruit attack is slightly weaker.

Nerf Pac-Jump doesn't do any damage when ascending.

Notice Fire Hydrant drop is stronger.
