A new twist to Pac-Man: PacMap

We’ve all played Pac-Man Championship Edition DX by now, and loved it.  It was a breath of fresh air into an archaic series, and an acid-induced one to boot.   But that’s old news, it’s time to look into the FUTURE of Pac-Man.

And that future is PacMap.

PacMap is an interesting little app being developed for Andriod phones.  What the app does is Google Map your neighborhood, then plops Pac-Man and the ghosts down for some road-based pellet eating action.

Something… worries me about it, though.  Check out the video out for it:

Look at how slow and sluggish it is!  I know it’s not the final version, but come on… a game like that would take AGES to simply walk down the street!  Hopefully they’ll spice and speed it up in the final version.

…Okay, okay, so maybe I lied.  PacMap isn’t really the future of our beloved yellow circle, but it certainly is an interesting concept.  I just hope that the developers will realize its potential, and not squander on some of the finer points.
