The first Xbox LIVE Windows Phone game allowing head to head multiplayer over local WiFi, PAC-MAN Kart Rally is now available. You can get PAC-MAN Kart Rally for $4.99 on the Windows Phone marketplace. You’ll immediately noticed that this game is a easy-to-notice copy of Mario Kart, down to the power-ups and maps. Either way, the features this Xbox LIVE game introduces, as far as the local WiFi multiplayer, is something that is hopefully expanded upon in future Windows Phone games.
PAC-MAN Kart Rally is published by Namco Bandai Games and released at version 220.127.116.11, with a 24 MB download size. Supported languages are Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, suomi, русский, 中文, and 日本語. As with all Xbox LIVE games, a trial version is available. However, the trial version doesn’t allow you to use the multiplayer feature, so you won’t be able to tell if that part is worth it. So far, ratings on the Windows Phone marketplace for this game call out the fact that it is a terrible rendition of other familiar (and better) titles, and it is not worth the $4.99 price either. It’s your call however, so be sure to check out the trial at least.
