To enjoy Pac-Man 99, I had to accept the frustrations that came with learning its systems. While it does an embarrassingly poor job of explaining the hows-and-whys of its mechanics, once you figure them out on your own, it's a good way to fill lulls in your day.

Most, if not all, of the timeless joys of the original Pac-Man are here to indulge in and frustrate one’s self over in equal parts. And with a slew of new mechanics and strategic forks in the road thrown into the mix, Pac-Man 99 is another resounding success at converting a timeless classic into a stressful-but-exciting multiplayer outing.

Pac-Man 99 is another smart multiplayer twist on a classic with fast-paced gameplay that requires on-the-fly strategy pivots and increasingly quick thinking as the field of competitors thins out. But once you lock into a winning style, there's nothing more to see. Even something as simple as changing up the maze structure at random would do wonders to keep Pac-Man 99 feeling fresher, longer, but here we’re trapped in the same maze for eternity.
