‘Pac-Man 256’ by Hipster Whale is ‘Pac-Man’ Meets ‘Crossy Road’

Bandai Namco and Hipster Whale, creators of the mega-hit Crossy Road (Free), have just announced a new game coming this summer: Pac-Man 256. The best way to describe it? It’s basically Pac-Man meets Crossy Road, where you’ll be controlling Pac-Man as he runs around endless mazes, trying to dodge the creeping Level 256 glitch. You’ll be collecting pellets, dodging ghosts, eating them when you get power pellets, and just trying to stay alive. Check out the trailer:

This should be out on mobile this summer. This seems like a real cool mix of one of the most popular games of the past year or so, and a gaming classic, hopefully making something fresh. And hey, it’s kind of fun to see Namco taking the advice to “just make Crossy Road, jeez!" advice, I suppose. We’ll be keeping an eye out for this one, for sure.
