Playing Pac-Man with a Top-down View in Real Life
May 16th, 2014
If you are a fan of Pac-Man, you need to check out this video of a basic Pac-Man level recreated in real life. The idea is to find out what would happen if a guy ran around the maze in real life while watching the traditional top-down perspective you see while playing in the arcade.
In this video from Rooster Teeth, this guy has to try to avoid ghosts and beat the level, all while wearing video goggles that only display a top-down view of the maze. Imagine how messed up you would get. Spoiler alert! He kinda sucks at it. Granted, the maze is kind of small and not totally accurate. He also can’t send the ghosts back to the middle when he eats them, so…
We are basically years away from an authentic experiment. We just don’t have the ghost or power pellet or even maze technology, but it is still fun to watch.
