Anti Pac-Man To The Rescue


Burnt out on Pac-Man? I know it’s not hard to be burnt out on the plot after all these years. I still love playing Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, but the story is a bit old. Fortunately, someone came up with the brilliant idea of reversing roles and creating a Pac-Man game where you play as the ghosts. It sounds simple, but it really rejuvenated my interest in the game.

Think of it like a squad based version of Pac-Man. Use the keys numbered 1 through 4 to take command of each ghost, then use the arrow keys to guide them away from your yellow dot-gobbling nemesis. As Pac-Man eats up, your score keeps going down, but if you can keep your ghosts alive, you can minimize the damage.

Reminds me of VS. Pac-Man (the pack-in with the Players Choice edition of Pac-Man World 2) only you can’t play multiplayer with ghosts vs. Pac-Man.

It sounds tricky, as I was growing up this was the first game that I played and I enjoyed spending hours chasing the ghosts, I can’t think what it would be like being the ghosts escaping from Pac-man. I wonder if those who grew up in a post PAc-Man era would find it interesting enough to experiment with the game.
