Pakkuman's Defense


Pakkuman's Defense

JohnBYou've got a few minutes before you have to be at work. That means it's time for a game! But what to play, Pac-Man or a tower defense game? How about both? From Tametick, the creator of Cardinal Quest, comes Pakkuman's Defense, a surprisingly superb melding of the classic arcade game Pac-Man and a modern tower defense game. There are ghosts. There are dots to eat. There are towers to place. And yes, you're going to have a blast with this unusual hybrid!

Pakkuman's DefenseHere's what's going on: you are Pakkuman, and you find yourself in a series of levels strewn with dots leading down a number of twisty paths. Ghosts spawn and follow their own behaviors (giving chase, methodically trolling the corridors, etc.), and since ghosts are the natural enemy of anything Pac-related, you need to avoid them or face a Game Over. Use the [spacebar] (or the on-screen tower button on mobile devices) to build a tower on the wall, placing it so it automatically fires at any ghosts passing by. This helps keep their numbers low, but even with a few smartly-placed towers in position, you'll need quite a bit of cunning to gather the dots and move on to the next level.

Pakkuman's Defense occasionally drops power-ups for you to grab, such as speed boosts, items that freeze or confuse ghosts, or money to increase your score. In the end, it's all about staying alive as long as you can, trekking through as many levels as you can, and getting your score as high as possible. You'll hit a curious zen sort of state once you get the hang of the game, and before you know it you'll be placing towers without a second thought, moving through the mazes like a certified Pac-TD master.

Nice game. :)
But is the controls meant as a joke?
