Pacapong - Pong, Pacman & Space Invaders all mashed up into one!
I said to myself today, "I seriously need a damn good entertaining indie game to play that would keep me occupied for more than just a few mins". Well the good news is, I've found it with 'Pacapong'. However Pacapong by kingpenguin is more than just an indie game, it's an indie game mashed up with some classic retro favourites while turning them completely on their heads. Imagine a Pong, Pacman and Space Invaders mash up and this is that game!
The aim of Pacapong is to beat your opponent using paddles, Pacman and collectable power ups while retaining a high enough time limit. Each person blasts a player controlled Pacman across the maze using a paddle which collects pellets for an increased time limit or past your opponents paddle to win the first match.
If you hit a ghost your time limit will decrease or if you collect an alien, space invaders will come down attacking your opponent. It all seems so confusing but in this game it really works, it just feels all so right. It's so impressive that the developer was able to fuse all these classic games into one, while remain fun, unique and keeping the gameplay interest going (especially in two player). You'll also be pleased to know Pacapong has a cool soundtrack and retro styled sound effects.
A highly recommended game to play on a wet weekend!
