Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Endless running
Oh, Pac-Man. Once, you had the entire gaming industry balanced on the top of your bulbous, ever-munching head.
Now you're an anachronism, long lost in a flutter of Angry Birds, your legacy abandoned like the arcades in which your bleeps and bloops once resonated.
Like a fallen actor you're forced to slum it, your grinning visage plastered across games that don't befit a whatever-the-hell-you-are of your stature.
Maybe Pac-Man Dash! will bring back the glory days. Flash a bit of leg, maybe even wear a cap to get the young kids interested. It could work. It has to work.
A reasonably entertaining endless-runner, Pac-Man Dash! could replace its fading star with anyone else and still have the same effect
