The game works very similarly to Crossy Road. You are endlessly traveling upwards to get the highest score. Also, you can tell that the art style is influenced by Crossy Road with its isometric logos and overlay of the map. However, this is where the similarities end and the Pac-Man style takes over.

Much like any typical Pac-Man you are constantly avoiding ghosts while navigating through the endless maze to get the highest score you can. This time around there are power-ups that can change how the game plays, for instance you can get a laser to destroy ghosts instead of having to eat the pull to turn them blue.

The game is free, but with in-app purchases, but they aren’t forced upon you. You can play with the special power-ups you unlock and have a stamina gauge that has to refill over time or pay to get more “credits” to play. Alternatively, you can turn them off and play to your hearts content. You can get this game now on iTunes and Google Play.
