Pac-Snake: Pix The Cat Coming To PC

Colourful arcade points-scoring

I hadn't thought I'd ever play Pac-Man or its clones ever again until Pac-Man Championship Edition DX arrived. It jazzed the Pac-formula up with speed, excitement, peril, and a whole load of noise, colours, and points pop-ups, turning the old all shiny and new. I am no longer a horrible cynic about new takes on old arcade games. So I'll certainly keep an eye on Pix the Cat, which publishers Focus Home have announced is coming to PC from PlayStations later this month. It's an arcadey high-scoring sort of a game which seems to blend bits of Snake and Pac-Man into one big loud colourful thing.

Focus Home explain, "your task is liberate ducklings and trail them to the safe-zones without hitting the walls, getting stuck, or running into your feathered friends, gaining the highest score possible and comparing them on the leaderboards." So, you know, a bit like like Pac-Man and Pac-Man CEDX and Snake. See a little of how it works in this here trailer.

It also supports four-player local multiplayer, which sounds grand. Reviews of the PlayStation 4 version (dontlookatscoresdontlookatscoresdontlookatscores) seem pretty positive, so fingers crossed, gang.

Developers Pastagames are also the folks behind Rayman Jungle Run, which you might've seen folks jabbing at on their pocket telephones.
