As if one retro-inspired 64-player battle royale adaptation wasn’t enough for Stadia users to be getting on with, a second will soon be making its way to the streaming service in the form of Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle – and there’s a demo available now.
Developed by Bandai Namco and Heavy Iron Studios, Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle is a 64-player battle royale experience in which chomp-mouthed participants attempt to be the last Pac-Man standing across 64 vibrantly themed, interconnected mazes.
“Invade other players’ mazes, eat their dots and power ups – even other players! – and dominate the mazes!”, is how Google pitches the new multiplayer adaptation in its announcement post, “But watch out: viewers can vote on power-ups that can cause you – or your opponents! – to stumble on the field and be eliminated from battle!”.
