The ultimate retro-game mashup

It's like playing Pong, Space Invaders and Pac-Man at the same time

Those still nostalgic for some old-school gaming, rejoice for Pacapong is made! It is a hybrid game that mashes up Pong, Space Invaders and Pac Man to create a 2 player game of intense non-stop action.

Nostalgia, ahoy

The game's take on Pong is that instead of paddling virtual balls, you instead launch Pac-Man through a maze while you try not to hit a ghost. If you hit one, it's not game over. Instead, its your opponent who gets to serve.

At the same time,  the players will also be using the Pong paddles to battle Space Invaders. It may sound overwhelming, but you probably come to enjoy the non-stop 8-bit action.

This game was unveiled for the Mini Ludum Challenge where game makers must build a Pong inspired game using any game engine. The game also supports gamepads. Now we have a chance to relive the good old days of 8-bit arcade minus the cleaning out our wallets bit. Just try not to get addicted.
