Pong, Pacman & Space Invaders In One Game

pacaponggif.gif

People everywhere are embracing the 'throw everything together and hope it works' method of creation nowadays.

Witness Cadbury's Marvellous Mix-Ups in the chocolate world, and the possibly even more bizarre crisp-based Walkers Mix-Ups (Wotsits, Doritos, Monster Munch and French Fries - well, Gary Lineker seems to like them we suppose).

But we never thought this tactic could be applied to the world of gaming: until now.

For the Ludum Dare 58 game jam, designer Dick Poelen has put three of the world's best-loved games - Pac-man, Pong and Space Invaders - into a giant blender, creating Pacapong. Two players each control a Pong paddle, which launches a Pac-man through the famous maze. Meanwhile, players can fire Space Invaders at each other, with even Donkey Kong popping up as a bonus extra to throw barrels at you.

Naturally, there's even a crazy 8-bit backing track going on, seemingly incorporating some dubstep elements.

Truly, this is the game that has everything.
