    Nintendo still loves retro games just as much. After relaunching the hype with Tetris 99, redesigned version of the puzzle transformed into a 99-player knockout game, and transformed Super Mario into a battle royale game (Super Mario Bros 35 Battle royale), the Switch welcomes a new game that will drive its subscribers crazy.

Small subtlety of this version: each swallowed enemy can then be sent as a disruptive element to other players who are fighting at the same time as you for their survival.

    As for Tetris 99, danger comes when you don't expect it and you'll have to fight ghosts while resisting attacks from elsewhere in the form of disruptive Pac-Man. You can even target competitors to eliminate them as quickly as possible, choose them at random or simply slow them down. And we are even promised strategies to use to “Improve your speed, your resistance to disruptive Pac-Man or to swallow several ghosts with a click and create a train. ”

    A ghost hunt not for everyone

    Unlike the Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle on Google Stadia, you can not wander here in the tables of your opponents or even go attack and eliminate them directly. It will really be necessary to be on the permanent alert.
