Game: Sonic Dash & Pac-Man
Initial Release Date: February 21st, 2018
Publisher: Sega & Bandai Namco Entertainment
Genre: Classic Arcade & Endless Runner
Platforms: Mobile Devices
Why We’re Playing It: Both Sonic the Hedgehog and Pac-Man carry with them nostalgia and a rich gaming history. Many generations grew up playing these games in arcades and on consoles. Who knew that years down the road we would be playing those same games but on our phones and with better graphics? It’s enough to make Doc Brown say, “Great Scott!”
What It’s All About?: TrunkSpace is no stranger to crossovers, just check out our Trunk Funnies! This pairs two of our favorite gaming icons, putting Pac-Man in Sonic’s world and Sonic in Pac-Man’s world. Each game is essentially the same as it was before but with a twist on the storyline with the characters switching places “Freaky Friday” style.
That’s Worth A Power-Up!: New playing skins aside, these are still great games at their core. They are all-ages friendly, but be aware that there are in-app purchases if you hand your device off to the little gamers in the house. The graphics in “Sonic Dash” are gorgeous and the “Pac-Man” gameplay keeps the classic arcade feel you know and love.
Bonus Level: One nice feature to this game is that they offer “family sharing,” which means that up to six people can use the app and share it on different devices, allowing for any purchases made by the group to be carried over.
