Packwar Pacman, also known as Hungry Pacman, is yet another exciting free release by the creators of the classic arcade game Pacman. This time around, the Pacman theme is taken to a whole new level. It has exactly the same great game play as its old counterpart, but adds an interesting twist with its creepy, crawly enemies. The first objective of the game is to guide your Pacman through five different levels, each more challenging than the last!
There is much to explore and digest in the Packwar Pacman series. The first level introduces you to the game's mechanic - your Pacman has a limited number of lives, which deplete every time you are hit and Pacman runs out of food. Players wander around their maze looking for the food, avoiding and attempting to destroy the Pacman (which moves at very fast speeds), but they always run into obstacles in their path which prevent them from progressing. On the sixth level, the players begin to have more lives, and the objective is to eliminate all the monsters in a certain amount of time - but this objective is set up in a manner that makes it impossible to know if you will be able to complete it or not, and the action becomes very chaotic as a result.
The developers manage to create an experience worthy of the masters of horror gaming, combining Pacman's cute simplicity with intense challenges. It's a unique take on an old, familiar theme, and one that definitely show how far the development of video games can go. If you love the classic, you'll love this fun alternative version. If you think you'd prefer a more traditional adventure, then the Packwar Pacman could be the perfect fit.
