Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures  



Belch out eyeballs of your foes in latest Pac-Man game

We covered the newly-announced Pac-Man game at E3, and while Brett's assessment wasn't positive, I was shocked most by the belch that Pac-Man lets loose at the end of each stage, from which the eyeballs of his consumed ghostly foes spew forth.

Now, Pac-Man and the Ghost Adventures is tailored after the cartoon series, which is actually the most popular show on Disney Kids, so that should be an indication of who this game's target audience is. Still, we have some new details about the game, including its roots in the classic Pac-Man arcade titles.

As noted, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures draws upon Pac-Man's roots with a heavy emphasis on eating everything, including the game's primary enemies: ghosts. You'll find yourself eating pellets as well as a variety of foods that replenish your health as you progress through 20 different levels that explore a number of different environments.

We were shown an ice level this time around, which had plenty of puzzles of solve, friends to rescue, and a nifty ice slide that had us dodging obstacles in an almost extreme sports-like fashion. From there, we were shown the new Fire Pac-Man power-up that had our prominently-eyebrowed companion spewing fire to demolish enemies and melt ice-based puzzle elements. Other power-ups will include Ice Pac-Man and Metal Pac-Man.

The game will also feature a multiplayer mode that will play like the classic maze-based Pac-Man titles as well as a hub area with an arcade that is full of mini-games.

I think this game is actually looking pretty good, although it's clear that the audience is meant to be those who are fans of the cartoon series. While that's not me, this by no means looks like it's going to bring shame to the series, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it shapes up moving forward.

Are there any fans of the television show out there that are looking forward to this game? Can you get behind a Pac-Man who disposes of his enemies' remains in such a vulgar fashion?
