Pac-Man + Gravity = Disorienting Nightmare

January 14, 2013 | Andy Cush

The digital pranksters at Stabyourself.net created “Not Pacman,” an aptly-named, nihilistic remix of everyone’s favorite classic arcade game, in which everyone involved is at the mercy of gravity’s relentless pull. Instead of controls to direct our hero’s movements, you tilt the board, letting Pac-Man and the Ghosts fall where they may. Just watching the above YouTube video is dizzying, but if you’d like to subject yourself to the gleeful torture, you can download the game for Mac, Windows, and Linux here.

“Ever wondered how Pacman would be like with physics?” write the game’s creators. “No? Well, it’s revolutionary. This mashup of “Not” and “Pacman” puts The Pac and the Ghosts in a in a Pacworld cage, at mercy of gravity and the level’s shape, controlled solely by you.”
