Pac-Man and Galaga Are Now Playable In Facebook Messenger


Today, Facebook introduced ‘Instant Games’ to its Messenger service. Pac-Man, Galaga, Zookeeper and 14 other titles will be readily available from the controller icon in your Facebook Message box or on your Newsfeed’s “Instant Games” tab.


So if you, like me, want all your friends to know you smash at Words with Friends, challenging them will be that much easier. Public leaderboards will keep track of high scores.

The HTML5 games work on mobile and web. “Instant Games” is in beta throughout 30 countries with an unspecified official launch.

Can’t stop several of the games from crashing on me midway, especially Words with Friends. Pain in the ass.
