Pac-Python: Pix The Cat

Pix the Cat [official site] is a score attack arcade game that mashes Pac-Man and Snake together. Pix runs through mazes, boosting by selecting a direction before he hits a junction as in Pac-Man DX Edition, and collects eggs. The eggs hatch and a trail of ducklings follows Pix – the longer the trail, the greater the risk of colliding with it, and the greater the speed at which Pix moves.
