Pac-Man 256 takes the infamous ‘256 glitch’ and builds a whole game around it as you not only go for the high score but must outrun the glitch and fight to stay alive. With a number of crazy power ups and an endless maze Pac-Man 265 is a gem of a game from Crossy Road developers Hipster Whale. It’s light hearted, colourful and a whole host of fun. If you want to experience Pac-Man like never before make sure to grab Pac-Man 265.

This handy little app might seem a bit off as a suggestion but trust me when I say that it is worth having. The app is linked to your Twitter account and will grab, sort and shuffle any links shared by people you follow and present them to you in a clear and easy to read manner. Not only that but the app learns what you like and dislike as you swipe to the left or right to dismiss the articles with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It helps you catch up on news and interesting links you might of missed and is generally a great little app.
