Pacman Battle Royale?

by fastbilly1 Mon Mar 01, 2010 4:20 pm

A teaser was released a couple days ago:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2p_lGmN ... r_embedded
And the only thing we can draw from it is 4 player Pacman. Rumors flowing from it are that it will be like Pacman CE but will also have scrolling stages, but ofcourse that is a rumor. The game is set to be displayed at Amusement Expo 2010. It is currently slated to be a four player arcade title - hopefully we will get a port on something.

I read about it first here:

Which is a great site for keeping up with modern arcade games. It is kinda under the radar but they post the facts and a short opinion, if any at all. I like it.

This caught my attention recently as well. To this day, Pacman C.E. is the only game on the 360 in which I attained every achievement. Hopefully Pacman Battle Royale is just as good!

To be honest Slowslow we dont know what this is going to be. But based on the teaser it looks like a 4 player version of pacman - like 4 pacman version. Pacman Vs is one of my favorite games of last gen so another multiplayer Pacman is welcome.

Pacman CE is an Xbox 360 Arcade release:

Damn. I can't comprehend how to get more than 400,000 points. I mostly just play it with the goal of beating my own high scores. I think I'm up to 218,000 or so.

This game sounds interesting, but I doubt they'll outdo pacman CE, which imo is the best 360 game out.

I think I did it on whatever the last available challenge mode is. If you concentrate on just getting the fruit you will eventually spawn crowns, which give you tons of points.

How are yall playing Pacman CE, just with the standard 360 or with some other one? I am thinking about adapting a Ms Pacman 20th anniversary stick over to the 360 for it, and hopefully Royale.
