The original Pac-Man game concept has been given a cannibalistic twist: Eliminate your opponents by eating them and the last Pac-Man standing wins the round. When players eat a power pellet, they power-up by doubling in size and increasing in speed. Once powered up, they are now able to at non powered-up blue players and ghosts. Players of the same size simply bounce off each other. Players can also be eliminated by running into ghosts if there aren't any powered up players. Eating a piece of fruit or all of the pellets resets the maze with a fresh new set of power pellets. At the end of the game, statistics are displayed for each players such as "Won Most Rounds" and "Ate Most Pac-Man", etc. This is the game you have been looking for. Pac-Man Battle Royale is great for any location, very casual, competitive, and highly addictive.
