Crossy Road just got updated with a new batch of characters: this time, based on classic arcade game Pac-Man.

There are two characters for free - Pac-Man himself, and a chicken wearing a Pac-Man t-shirt - but the other four - the coloured ghosts - are all locked away until you meet certain criteria.

Want to know more? Check out the guides below:

Blinky

Blinky

For this red chap, you should be playing as the Pac-Chicken. Now, your job is to get run over by Pac-Man, who randomly appears and speeds across the level. He's hard to find and even harder to get run over by, but listen for his distinct audio cue.

Pinky

Pinky

Play as Pac-Chicken for Pinky, too. For her, you need to find and gobble a pair of pixel art cherries that appear randomly on the world map. They're quite rare, so just have patience and keep playing until you find them.

Clyde


Cylde

Getting Clyde involves playing as Pac-Man, grabbing a power pellet, and eating ghosts. Lots of ghosts. Seems like you have to eat seven ghosts from one power pellet. You'll then get Clyde when you next die.

You can make this a lot easier by eating a power pellet while in power mode. This will greatly lengthen the amount of time you have to munch on ghosts.

Inky


Inky

No one quite knows how to get Inky right now. All we know for sure is that you have to be Pac-Man to get him. There are lots of theories, but the most popular suggests that it's as easy as eating 50 power pellets across multiple runs.

We'll let you know if we learn more (and unlock him ourselves!)
