Not Pac-Man Will Spin You Right Round, Like a Record Baby
January 13th, 2013
So now that you’ve finally memorized all of the patterns to beat Pac-Man, what are you going to do with all of that spare time on your hands? Well, you could move on to Ms. Pac-Man, I suppose, or you could try this game, which starts out looking like Pac-Man, but then quickly degrades into insanity.
Created by the appropriately-named Stabyourself.net, Not Pac-Man is just that. NOT Pac-Man. On the surface it looks like the classic arcade game, but as soon as you start playing it you realize something is amiss. Instead of you moving Pac-Man, you move the maze with your mouse or keyboard, causing the ghosts and Pac-Man to go tumbling through the spinning maze. The objectives are the same as the original, but the gameplay is completely different. It’s sort of like one of those labyrinth games, but with Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde instead of ball bearings. Confused? Here, this should set you straight:
It’s definitely wacky, but infinitely more playable than Zero-G Pac-Man at least. So if you’re ready to try out Not Pac-Man for yourself, head on over to Stabyourself.net and download it now – where it’s available for not just Windows, but for Mac and Linux too. Wocka! Wocka! Wocka!
