Now, you know me. Co-op gaming with the lads IS my crack pipe!
So imagine my surprise when Facebook Gaming released a free-to-play Pac-Man game that not only features gameplay with up to four players, but also a Mario Maker-like maze creation mode! The game is Pac-Man Community.

In addition to the modes mentioned above, there is also a Watch Tab option, letting players spectate the creators playing the game. This mode lets you optionally take control of Pac-Man or the ghosts if you’re feeling adventurous! It’s good to hear Pac-Man Community has built-in social mechanics, partly for accessibility, partly for the sake of the Facebook boomers that post Messenger texts on their wall by accident!

The Vaguely-Related Questionably-Inserted Product Power Hour: Now, if you’re clicking on this, you’re probably into Pac-Man, and if you’re into Pac-Man, you probably like other retro old-school games from the days of dial-up being the peak of technological brilliance. Well, we have not one, but TWO My Arcade mini gaming consoles. My Arcade is not literally my arcade (I wish), it’s essentially a portable console that has a specific retro game or games ported to it, letting you get stuck into some good ol’ 8-bit goodness while on the go. We’ve got My Arcades for Karate Champion and Pixel Classic (containing over 300 games).
