At their core, the most popular games of the ’80s — like Pac-Man — seem similar to their modern counterparts — like Angry Birds. They’re simple affairs with basic controls for straightforward gameplay that happen on what is essentially a single screen.
The primary difference is that many modern games — like Angry Birds — employ complex physics engines, whereas older games — like Pac-Man — used the physics of up, down, left and right.
But what if Pac-Man used actual physics? That’s where Not Pacman comes in…
Instead of giving Pac-Man four directions to move in, Not Pacman lets players spin the entire board and leaves Pac-Man (and the ghosts) at the mercy of gravity.
It’s enough to make you puke, both with excitement and with actual puking. (Thank you, too much spinning.)
The game is for real and you can download it on Stabyourself.net — the people who came up with such a crazy idea.
