PAC-MAN 99 Gives The Classic Game the Battle Royale Treatment

As with Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35, players will be able to stack the odds against the opposition with preset strategies. Increased speed, extra Jammers and more are available.

Players can gain the upper hand by eating Power Pellets, chewing up ghosts, and sending Jammer Pac-Man to their opponents' games.

Eat more ghosts, and send more jammers to get the win.

Players can tweak the look and sounds of the game, too, with themes based on Xevious, GALAGE, Dig Dug and more, although these will set you back $2 each.

You can add a CPU battle mode for $15, or grab all available DLC in one $30 bundle.
