10 word description: You against the chasers. No escape. How long would you last? (Copied from app store description. I’ll let them have 11 words because it’s a cool game.)

10 word review: Simple gameplay, hugely addictive, 5 different levels immediately available. Recommended!

The good news: Great controls. Wide variety of locations and cars immediately available. Excellent touch-screen/mobile gameplay. No ads, no IAPs. Car-loads of fun.

The bad news: Occasional hitching where the game seems to lag/stick maybe once per level after around 20-30 seconds. Nothing to unlock.

Arcadelife verdict: Apart from the missed opportunity to lock some of the levels or maybe give us some different colour cars or even permanent score boosters to unlock, Pako is a huge amount of fun and a great “best time” chasing mobile game. There’s definitely some kind of minor technical issue with the game hitching/sticking a bit (as seen on both 4th gen iPad and my 5th gen Touch) but it isn’t game-breaking and I’m sure they will fix it soon.

This is a good game; you should get it.
