In Pac-Man 256, The Glitch Bites Back!

It’s a new twist on Pac-Man on your iOS or android device. Eat the dots, avoid the ghosts unless you have a power pellet, you know the drill. However, this time the glitch from the 256th board of the Pac-Man arcade game (that made beating level 256 impossible) is back, slowly eating away the maze as you head up and up. How far can you go? How long can you last? How much can you score? How relevant can Pac-Man be in 2015?

Mobile phone games are all the rage these days, and many claim to offer all kinds of fun for the low low price of free, but very few games actually deliver on that promise. One game that delivered very nicely was last year’s Crossy Road. A fun take on Frogger, turning it into an endless scroller in an isometric, pixels turned into boxes kind of thing.
