Weekly Dose of gaming News - Pac Man 99
Pac-Man lovers, get ready for a brand new challenge from the popular retro title.
Pac-Man 99 is available on Nintendo Switch, and if you're a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, you'll have access to the game for free. Pac-Man 99 is similar to the challenging Tetris 99 Where you're pitted against 98 other online players, the core game is the same as classic Pac-Man, with the added twist of being able to affect other players games by eating ghosts to send what's called a Jammer Pac-Man into your opponent's board. If you run into the Jammer Pac-Man, you're significantly slowed down, making it easier to be caught by the ghosts you're constantly trying to outrun.
In typical battle royale fashion, the game continues until there is only one player left standing. However, if you're not a fan of battle royale, you are able to play a single player game, or battle the computer as opposed to other people, but if you'd like to go that route, you'll have to purchase both of those modes separately.
As someone who really enjoys Tetris 99, I'm excited to give Pac-Man 99 a try. Are you interested in the new twist on a classic game?
