The upcoming port, which will launch exclusively via digital channels for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PCs via Steam, will include an all-new multiplayer mode that lets up to four friends team up to tackle Pac-Man s infamous kill screen.

Upon reaching the 256th level in the original Pac-Man, expert players encounter an impassible roadblock in the form of a glitchy maze that cannot be completed.

Pac-Man 256 reimagines Pac-Man s kill screen scenario as a world-devouring glitch that chases the player and destroys everything in its path.

Players must dodge ghosts and gobble up pellets for score as they attempt to flee the impending digital apocalypse.

Crossy Road found success on mobile platforms in 2014 thanks to its smartphone-optimized control mechanics and free-to-play structure that awarded skilled players with bonus unlockables over the course of gameplay.

Today s trailer revealed that the console and PC versions of Pac-Man 256 will feature multiple maze layouts and tilesets, including unlockable skins inspired by series entries like Pac-Mania and Pac-Man Championship Edition.
