If you've played Pac-Man, you can play PAC-MAN BATTLE ROYALE, but you'll have to use all new strategies and keep on your toes even more than usual. The competitive aspect is a very nice addition, and you can have a blast trying to outrun not only the pursuing ghosts, but also your fellow players. While the one four-player maze is pretty much the entirety of what you get in this app, it makes for a great "huddle game" -- an app for multiple users on the same iPad. The app could be improved by adding the ability to compete with others via WiFi, but if you've got a few friends sitting around and you don't want to pull out the same old board games, this could be a very enjoyable alternative.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
