Game Hype: Pac-Man Smash

I'm not going to be covering the Arcade Expo in Las Vegas this March, but that doesn't mean I can't show off some of the new arcade units. Pac-Man Smash makes air hockey look a lot more fun with up to four players, huge mallets and tiny multi-discs.

" Up to four players can play simultaneously in a frenetic battle of the pucks. The game starts out with one regular sized puck to get the players warmed up. Each score is worth 100 points, which is displayed on the large LED scoreboard. After a side has scored a goal, the puck is automatically returned to the alternate side of the playfield. Randomly throughout the game, dozens of mini pucks (worth 30 points each) will spill onto the playfield causing a scoring frenzy."
